Spanish La Liga

Starting XI: Sevilla Vs Barca

FC Barcelona travel to a struggling Sevilla in a La Liga clash on Saturday afternoon, with both sides missing several key players for the tie. 

La Liga

Teams: Sevilla vs Barcelona

Venue: Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, Seville

Time: 4.00pm

Barcelona will be without four players on Saturday due to injuries – Lionel Messi, Rafinha, Andres Iniesta and Thomas Vermaelen.

Sevilla, like the Catalan club, are also struggling with several sidelined players, namely Nico Pareja, Daniel Carrico, Adil Rami, Beto, Gael Kakuta, Ever Banega and Sergio Escudero.

Unal Emery's team have only managed one win from their six league games this season, and are 16th in the league standings.

Barcelona, who haven't looked their best in this campaign so far, are second in the table, having won five of their six matches.

Despite their form, Sevilla will have some confidence knowing they've scored two goals against the Catalan side in each of their past seven meetings.

However, Barcelona haven't lost in their past 12 ties with Sevilla, and have won 23 of their past 27 matches in La Liga.

Here is how the teams will line up:

Sevilla: Rico, Coke, Andreolli, Kolo, Tremoulinas, Krycho, N'Zonzi, Krohn Dehli, Iborra, Vitolo, Gameiro

Barcelona: Bravo; Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Mathieu, Alba; Busquets, Mascherano, Rakitic; Neymar, Munir, Suárez

Do you think Sevilla could cause an upset on Saturday? Let us know in the comments section below.
