The two teams have also been paired in the Copa del Rey semi-finals and are set to clash in the second-leg next week. But for now, all focus will be on this weekend's league fixture. 
 
Los Palanganas head into the match on a six-game winning run in the league. Sevilla have not conceded in their last five matches and beat Osasuna 2-0 on Monday evening to move up above Barcelona and into third. 
 
Sevilla goalkeeper Bono has gone 528 consecutive minutes without conceding in the Spanish top-flight which is a new record for the club. 
 
Barcelona saw their seven-game winning run ended with a 1-1 draw at home to Cadiz last weekend. The Blaugrana are unbeaten in 13 LaLiga matches ahead of back-to-back games against Elche and Sevilla this week. 

"We perhaps are a little scared when we only have a one goal advantage, it has happened to us before," said Barca manager Ronald Koeman. 

"We had lots of possession, lots of chances, but in the end we drew 1-1. But I also have to say we've had a lot of bad luck and it's not fair. Opponents always seem to score against us when they have very few chances."

The two teams played out to a 1-1 draw at Camp Nou in the reverse fixture earlier this season. Luuk de Jong opened the scoring for the visitors before a Philippe Coutinho equaliser.
