FC Barcelona XI vs Sevilla: Confirmed early team news, predicted lineup, latest injuries for LaLiga clash


Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman will have to make at least one change to his XI as the Catalans host Sevilla at Camp Nou tonight.

Defender Clement Lenglet was sent off in the 3-0 win at Celta Vigo on Thursday and will miss the game against Sevilla through suspension.

The French defender, who joined Barca from Sevilla in 2018, is likely to be replaced in the line-up by Ronald Araujo after the Uruguayan came on shortly after his dismissal at Balaidos and impressed alongside Gerard Pique.

Koeman confirmed on Saturday that Barcelona are also still hoping to sign another centre-back, Eric Garcia, from Manchester City before the transfer window closes on Monday.

Right-back Sergino Dest has already joined from Ajax and Koeman said on Saturday that the 19-year-old USA international could make his debut on Sunday, although the Catalan club may not be able to register the teenager in time for the Camp Nou clash.

Further forward, the Dutch coach is set to keep faith with his preferred front four of Ansu Fati, Philippe Coutinho, Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi, with the Argentine – who has scored 29 career goals against Sevilla – in the role of false nine.

Samuel Umtiti and Marc-Andre ter Stegen are still out through injury, so Neto will continue in goal as Koeman’s side seek a third straight win after the 4-0 success at home to Villarreal last weekend and Thursday’s 3-0 victory away to Celta.
