on fire! Barcelona celebrated their 1-0 home victory over Sevilla in the 30th round of La Liga to remain undefeated for their 13th consecutive game.
The main focus of the guests is stable defense. Except for a good chance from Ferran Torres, whose flick turned out to be a bit high, the tactic works.
The Catalans are the better team until the first half, but they can hardly create chances. The defensive line of the Andalusian is very curvy and secure.
Pedri as Barcelona’s savior
Improvement occurs with changing aspects. Barcelona take more risks and are rewarded after about an hour. Bono’s first goalie directs Torres’ direct acceptance on goal, and shortly thereafter Pique’s header hit the crossbar. On the other hand, Seville draws attention with a free kick from Rakitic that touches the net above the goal.
Young Pedri is responsible for salvation from the point of view of the house. The midfield drive allows two opponents to stand in space and hits with precision in the left corner out of the sixteen – 1:0 (72)!
In the table, Barcelona (57 points) jumps to second place and is now equal in points, ahead of Atletico and Seville.
Leader and archrival Real Madrid (69) 12 points away. However, Barcelona can reduce the difference to nine points as the Catalans play an additional match against Rayo Vallecano (April 24).
