Barcelona and Sevilla meet once again today at the Camp Nou. These two teams are going to decide who will get into the Copa del Rey's final that will be held at La Cartuja stadium, in Sevilla. Here we'll take a look into the preview, predictions, odds and how to watch this interesting game in the US.
The hosts will be looking to overcome a two-goal deficit from the first-leg, when Ronald Koeman's team lost by that difference at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, home of Sevilla. That defeat now demands Barcelona to pull out the best from themselves to turn things around and keep pursuing the trophy.
On the other hand, Julen Lopetegui's squad face a better scenario ahead of this clash, obviously because of the advantage they got in the opening game of this series. However, holding on to that result will probably be a tough task at the rival's ground.

Barcelona vs Sevilla: Storylines and Head-to-Head
These two have met a lot recently due to the domestic cup and also in the local league. Their latest clash was in the round 25 of La Liga, when Barcelona beat Sevilla on the road to increase the gap between them in the standings.
However, the previous meeting between them in Copa del Rey wasn't such a good one for the Catalans. The hosts got a two-goal lead to head into the second-leg of the semifinals with a lot of confidence. That put the blaugranas in a hurry prior to this match.
Barcelona is under pressure to overturn the difference from the first game. Still, Ronald Koeman's team are going through an amazing streak in the league, being undefeated in their last 15 games. If they can put on a display according to such form, they may get the result they want.
But Sevilla probably won't make things easy and will go out to the pitch looking to finish the job. This will be the 12th time both sides will clash in Copa del Rey, where Barcelona got the victory 6 times, while Sevilla three and they tied twice.
