Barcelona vs Sevilla

Four points clear at the top of the table, Barcelona will be looking to extend their lead when they entertain the consistently inconsistent Sevilla.
A disappointing goalless draw at Olympiakos in midweek shouldn't damp spirits too much as the Catalan giants remain on course to qualify in first place from their Champions League group.

Barca's injury list continues to grow with Sergi Roberto's name added after the Olympiakos draw. The versatile midfielder joins the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Rafinha and Andre Gomes on the sidelines.

Captain Andres Iniesta, however, is in line for a return. Sevilla, who beat Spartak Moscow 2-1 to stay in the hunt for a Champions League last-16 spot, are at full strength.

Sevilla's biggest problem is scoring. They create a lot but couldn't convert. They have scored just 11 goals from their opening 10 games.
