Probable Lineup For Barcelona Against Sevilla

Julian Araujo

Barcelona take on Sevilla at home on Friday night after an upsetting share of points against Mallorca. They will look to bounce back to being on top of the table.

Frenkie de Jong and Pedri, two of the blaugrana’s most crucial players, are out of the lineup. The former suffered an injury against Celta Vigo and is anticipated to be out until at least November. Contrarily, Pedri may rejoin the group after the month’s international break. And although though Sevilla, who is now in 12th position, is not in great shape, Xavi will likely play his strongest starting lineup due to the game’s historical significance.

Back Line For Barcelona

Ronald Araujo will reportedly start this weekend’s match, according to reports. He ought to be selected together with Joules Kounde making a comeback and Andreas Christensen taking an additional break.

This team will protect Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who made two errors against Mallorca and is attempting to regain his form.

Since joining Barcelona, Joao Cancelo has played approximately 400 minutes over five games and more than 90 minutes for Portugal. Sergi Roberto, who will wear the captain’s armband, may be given the day off in his place.
Alejandro Balde, who will initially start at left-back, should be the final defence jigsaw piece.

Motivated Midfield

Against Mallorca, Oriol Romeu had his first unsuccessful performance for Barcelona. The Spaniard, who is essentially assured a starting position now that Pedri and Frenkie de Jong are out, will try to tighten up the midfield once again.
As a result, it is anticipated that Ilkay Gundogan, Gavi, and Fermin Lopez will all get the start.

Firepower up Front

While Robert Lewandowski started the team’s midweek game on the bench, he should now be the only No. 9 on the roster.

Since Barça switched to a traditional 4-3-3, the Pole has been in fantastic form, contributing to three assists and scoring four goals in four games.

Joao Felix did not score or provide an assist for Barcelona or Portugal for the first time in five games, but he will still play the left flank and Ferran Torres will sit out.

Xavi made a remark about controlling Lamine Yamal’s playing time, but the coach will want Raphinha to have adequate rest ahead of the Champions League match against Porto the following week. So, we may anticipate the 16-year-old in the starting XI.
