The second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final between Barcelona vs Sevilla.
INDOSPORT.COM – Semifinal second leg match Copa del Rey between Barcelona vs Sevilla will be presented on Thursday (4/3/21) in the morning WIB.
In the first leg which was held last month, Sevilla, which was the host, won a convincing 2-0 victory through goals from Jules Kounde and Ivan Rakitic.
Thus, Barcelona need a win at least 3-0 to qualify for the final. On the other hand, Sevilla only needed a draw. Even a thin defeat could still bring Los Nervionenses to the top party.
Despite beating Sevilla 2-0 in the Spanish LaLiga last weekend, hunting for two consecutive wins over Jesus Navas et al is clearly not an easy task for Lionel Messi and colleagues.
The reason is, in this match, Sevilla controlled 42 percent ball possesion and was only able to make four kicks with two of them on target. None of these opportunities resulted in a goal.
Other than that, Sevilla is believed to be playing insistently in the Copa del Rey, considering this is the only reasonable opportunity for them to win the trophy this season, after only being ranked fourth in the Spanish LaLiga standings.
They also lost 2-3 to Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the last 16 of the Champions League in mid-February.
Sevilla’s score in the Copa del Rey this season is arguably much better than last year, when they fell to Mirandes in the last 16.
