Barcelona dominate but don’t score
The counter-attack was magnificent for Sevilla. Martial shifts Navas down the right side, but his cross for Ocampos is inaccurate. The Argentinian probably went a little too fast towards the goal.
Good center of Alba
He was looking for Aubameyang at ground level, but Koundé is vigilant and pushes back for a corner. Sevilla defends a lot and no longer takes the ball out.
THE PEDRI FESTIVAL
The Spanish prodigy wanders through the Sevilla defense, until giving a back pass which is finally cleared by the defense. The opener was close.
The Frenchman makes differences but then misses his pass for De Jong. There are still too many inaccuracies in Barça’s game.
On a nice counter-attack, Ocampos completely misses but the ball successfully returns to Lamela. The Argentinian gets on his left foot and knocks down, but it’s caught by Ter Stegen.
Here we go again
Sevilla FC kicks off the second half, which we hope will be a little more exciting. Barça dominates for the moment, without packing the meeting.
It’s the break at the Camp Nou
0-0 between Barça and Sevilla FC. Slow first half, but the Catalans had the clearest chances and could already lead.
Aubameyang stumbles on Bono!
Found in depth by Dembélé, Aubameyang manages to cross his shot. Bono relaxes well on the ground to push away with one hand. Nice stop.
The unmissable of Barça!
Pedri finds Dembélé over the defense. The French headed for Torres, who failed to resume. Behind, Aubameyang is too short. Corner for Barça but it was a huge opportunity just before the break!
AUBAMEYANG ON EARTH…
On a cross from Alves, Aubameyang collapses when he seemed in a good position. He is in contact with Koundé and claims a penalty. The referee says nothing, neither does the VAR. There was no serious contact.
The sequence of Torres!
On a new cross from Dembélé, the Spaniard controls from the chest and strikes from the right, but it is captured by Bono.
There is no solution in front of the Sevillian surface. Pedri, Torres, Alba touch a lot of balls but it’s sterile.
It is countered by Busquets and it goes for a corner.
The intensity has fallen
Barça had some big situations at the start of the match but it’s been a little calmer for about ten minutes.
Sevilla seek solutions in attack
Martial, Lamela and Ocampos are too little found by their partners.
Dembele makes a festival
In full surface, Ousmane Dembélé fakes Diego Carlos without even touching the ball. He then opens the way to the goal but the Brazilian defender comes back in extremis.
Martial in the box
Finally a ball to exploit for the Frenchman, but he comes up against Araujo. Martial calls for a hand but the referee says nothing.
The recovery of Alba!
After a three-way combination with Pedri and Aubameyag, the Spanish left-back is in a striking position. But the angle is closed and Alba cannot find the frame. Barça has situations but currently lacks precision.
Sevilla are struggling to build their stocks
Sevilla quickly lose the ball when they enter Barça’s camp. At the moment, they are not at all dangerous.
Dembele has way too much space
He is left almost alone on his right side and each time has time to adjust his passes or his crosses. It hasn’t hit the mark so far but it’s a risky tactic from Sevilla.
New Dembele centers
The Frenchman touches a lot of balls on his side, but Koundé then Bono pushes his crosses in front of Aubameyang.
THE DUTCHMAN WAS CLOSE! On a cross from Dembélé, De Jong projects himself and places his head at close range, but he cannot control the ball and it is above.
Barça’s difficult recovery
Pedri and Alba got into trouble but they finally get out of it. Barça attack cautiously in these first ten minutes.
First incursion of the Spaniard, who receives the ball on the right side, passes Lamela and Navas and wraps from the right. His shot misses the Sevilla goal, but first alert.
Center of Alves countered
The referee whistles a hand, good free kick for Barça. Sevilla’s defense is vigilant and fends off danger.
Busquets gets up
He remained almost 2 minutes on the ground but he regained his senses and his place on the ground.
The Barcelona captain is on the ground, stunned after an involuntary collision with Gérard Piqué.
Let’s go to Camp Nou
Barca kick off.
End of the warm-up at the Camp Nou
Kick off in 5 minutes.
Martial looking for goals
The Frenchman has scored a goal in the Champions League since joining Sevilla FC, but he has yet to find the net in 5 league games.
19 years ago…
Ronaldinho scored his first goal in a Barça jersey against Sevilla FC. Not the least beautiful.
Aubameyang, threat n°1
Arriving free from Arsenal this winter, Pierre-Emerick Aubemayang continues. He only needed 7 games to score his first 7 goals, no one does better in the 21st century.
Dembélé scorer during the last reception of Sevilla
Generally speaking, the Frenchman is walking on water at the moment. He has been decisive 8 times (1 goal, 7 assists) in his last 5 La Liga games. In his last outing, in the Clasico against Real Madrid, he provided two assists.
Martial and Koundé holders for Sevilla
Anthony Martial starts for the second consecutive time in La Liga. He is not the only French lined up on the Sevillian side, since Koundé is present in defense.
