Things have already gone well at Barcelona in recent weeks, and the team has accelerated under Xavi. She has not lost any of her last 12 official matches, and has had nine wins and three draws. A notable moment last weekend at the Bernabeu, when rivals Real Madrid were beaten 4-0. After this show, there was only one change, pushing Dani Alves Garcia to the bench. The Brazilian played as usual at right-back, while Araujo moved to the center of defense.
The victory over Sevilla gave Barcelona a chance to take second place. The development of a difficult first half in this first match of the Spanish League. Barcelona made more money in the match, but in the final third it was still too imprecise to cause serious problems for Sevilla. Ferran Torres tried the flick was too loud (8th). Guests from Andalusia defended very well, but almost nothing happened.
Shortly before the end of the first half, the hosts pressed again: Dembele did not do enough with a free header, Konde saved in the middle from Aubameyang (44), shortly before the end of the break, goalkeeper Bono was at the post against Aubameyang (45′ + 1′). So he went aimlessly in the cabins.

After the break, the game needed a quarter of an hour to reach operating temperature. Then Barcelona appeared in particular, and Ferran Torres’ direct acceptance overtook Bono (63th place). On the other hand, Rakitic got the best chance for the Andalusians in the match, as his free kick hit the net (66). Since then, only the hosts have played, and Pique’s header fell on the crossbar (69th place).
1-0 for Barcelona was in the air – and it happened well deservedly: he pulled Pedri twice in front of the penalty area, letting two opponents slip into space – then hit dry and put into the left corner (72). This wonderful moment from the young Spaniard put the Blaugrana on the path to victory that cannot be stopped. From generally weak Sevilla almost nothing came of the final stage, Ferran Torres missed the early decision with a header (77).

I stayed with the well-deserved Barcelona trio. This was also due to the fact that Ter Stegen made amends shortly before the end and saved the shot from the former Bremer Augustinsson (90 + 2). Thus, Barcelona has extended its series of matches (13 official matches without defeat) and is preparing for the first leg of the European League quarter-final on Thursday (9 pm, live! In Kicker) in Frankfurt.
