The visitors are in a strong position in this Copa del Rey quarter-final and we think they can contribute to a high scoring second leg at Camp Nou
The Blaugrana have won this competition in each of the last four seasons, yet they are facing an early exit after a 2-0 first leg defeat last week.
Ernesto Valverde rested several key players including Lionel Messi for the visit to Seville, and his team selection will be crucial to Barca’s chances of progressing.
Barcelona are offered at 1/4 (1.25) with bet365 to win on the night in 90 minutes. If Sevilla manage to score, then Barcelona will need to net at least four times on Wednesday due to the away goals rule being enforced.

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets and Marc-Andre Ter Stegen were all left out of the starting eleven in the first leg and could return, but Jasper Cillessen is likely to continue in goal. Ousmane Dembele and Samuel Umtiti are injured.
Sevilla have injury problems with Jesus Navas ruled out with a problem picked up in the first leg. New signing Munir El Haddadi is also injured and cannot face his former club, while winger Nolito is ruled out for much of the rest of the season.
Barcelona boast an excellent home record against Sevilla and would readily expect to beat them, but only three of their last nine results at Camp Nou against Sevilla would see them progress on Wednesday.
The Andalusians have scored in seven of their last nine away games to Barca in all competitions, and in La Liga only the Catalans have scored more goals than Pablo Machin’s side.
Indeed, the Sevilla coach is far from a defensive manager and is likely to approach the game trying to score a goal rather than defend the aggregate lead.
Tips and predictions
This selection has paid out in six of the last eight meetings between these two sides in Catalonia, including a 4-2 win for Barca in La Liga back in October.
