The title race will continue in Spain this coming weekend as Sevilla will play host to Barcelona. It will be one of the biggest games left for Barcelona as the Catalonian side chase another league title. But, will Sevilla upset the odds and get a shock win?
La Liga Preview

Their most recent victory came against Leganes as they won 2-0 with the goals coming from Messi and Ansu Fati.

Since the restart, they have won once and drawn once, and are four points clear in the race to finish in the top four.
