FC Barcelona returns home in search of returning to the path of victory and recovering the good feelings, after two games that have left more doubts than certainty. It's time to take a step forward and win against a Sevilla that is on the rise.

Calendar of FC Barcelona

With hardly time to recover after the tie in front of the RCD Mallorca in Sound Moix (2-2), the FC Barcelona takes action in LaLiga EA SPORTS 2023/2024 to receive to the Seville in the eighth day, this Friday from the 21:00 hours (9:00 PM CEST). The blaugrana have left a lot of doubts in the last two parties and pretend to go back to the senda of the victory and, more important still, recover the good feelings and go back to feel comfortable in the terrain of game. The challenge is capital, because the Andalusian picture is on line ascending and will look for to give 'war'.

The ones of Xavi Hernández left an image very 'poor' in front of Celtic and Mallorca, although against the Galicians finished tracing back of way epic in the últmos eight minutes. However, the alarms are lit by the problems that has had the team in front of two teams organised to defensive level and that suppose an auténtco problem when they leave in contragolpe. After the two 'manitas', in front of Betis and Amberes, the Barça has showed a version very 'different', with doubts and without shine.

The Barça, with problems for resolving

And it is that, although the team follows adding a good quantity of goals (three in the last two parties), is fitting more than the account. In eight day, have received eight, the same that they had added in 23 dates in the past course. The difference is overwhelming and 'resume' in that they are committing a lot of errors in the defensive saga; andntre problems in the shrinkings to individual errors that are condemning duramente to the team. The aim is that it go back the reliability in the retaguardia, that already was key to heave the title of LaLiga in the 2022/2023.

The blaugrana have had to work to improve defensivamente and against the Seville will be to proof, definitively. The ones of José Luis Mendilibar were signing a start of season very negative, but have not fallen in the last three parties (a tie and two victories) and come of a goleada, with 'manita' included, to the Almería (5-1). They were five goleadores distinct that they could put in problem to the Barcelona if they are not hit defensivamente.

The Seville, a dangerous rival for the Barça

One of the big appeals of the picture of Nervión, in addition to the turn of Sergio Bouquets, is being Dodi Lukébakio. It annotated a golazo in front of the picture almeriense and is being one of the positive notes of the team. It had arrived from the Hertha Berlin and the Tuesday had hunted a balloon in the balcony of the area to add two cuts in which it left backwards until five defenders for, finally, nail the spherical in the goal with a lovely direct shot to the square. The Belgian is waking up passions in Seville and can be one of the big quebraderos of head in Montjuïc if no controls him .

The hispalenses will want to recover his best version and the Barça will have to brake them, because it would be inadmissible that the party did not remain with a result in favour of the Barcelona. Add of to three points will be very important, especially because 24 hours afterwards Girona and Real Madrid will confront in Montilivi. The culés have to do the duties to try finish the day in the highest of the competition, again. They depend on what happen in the another party, but before have to fulfil.

Changes or rotations of the Barça in front of the Seville?

It is thus that, although we are in time of rotations, Xavi could bet by an alignment very headline and, if it wants , of gala. The main novelties will be in the defence, place are many the possibilities that it bet by which, in paper, would be the defensive saga of gala, with Joao Cancel in the right side, the couple of head offices of Ronald Araújo and Jules Koundé, in addition to an insustituible Alejandro Balde by the left band.

In the centre of the field there is not a lot to choose neither rotar, by what is very likely that repeat Oriol Romeu, Ílkay Gündogan and Gavi in the medullary. The three will be the attendants to generate some control and sense to the game, something that has been missing in a lot of stretches of the last two parties. Finally, in the leading are many the options and, also, the doubts. Right now it seems indisputable Raphinha, that comes of a partidazo in front of the Mallorca and is being very solvent. Robert Lewandowski and Joao Félix could accompany him.
