What happened the last time Barcelona lost 0-2 in front of Sevilla?
Sevilla won last Wednesday against Barcelona by two goals to zero, a result that gives the Andalusian team a certain advantage over the team led by Ronald Koeman. The return match will take place next Wednesday 3 of March, in which one of the finalists for the current edition of the Copa del Rey will be chosen.
Hopes for the comeback
Despite the fact that Barcelona has only been able to lift one 0-2 on two of the eight occasions on which he has found himself faced with this situation in cup competition, has a reference of the closest where to look for hope. Precisely, The last time the Barça team could overcome this result was in 2019, in the quarterfinals against Sevilla. The result in the second leg was 6-1.
evidently, the situation of the team at that time was very different, and is that during the current season the team led by Leo Messi has suffered on many occasions to lift according to which games, like the quarterfinal against Granada that ended up winning in extra time. Despite the fact that all the indicators point to Sevilla leaving with an advantage to reach the final of the Copa del Rey, something we can check, for example, taking a look at the quotas that are established in online betting from this week and until the second leg is played, the azulgranas still have a situation to hold on. And is that, just as it happened in Granada, Koeman's men have regained pride in this second leg of the season.
The Champions in the middle
One of the great handicaps of the Barça team is that in the middle of this Copa del Rey tie they will have to face, nothing more and nothing less, than against Paris Saint-Germain, in the knockout stages of the Champions League. Even with Neymar's injury, that will be a month off, the game against the French team can be really hard for the culé team, that has been shown fragile in defense in the last matches.
The forecasts for the maximum European competition are not at all favorable to the culé team, So a defeat in the two tournaments could leave the Catalans with practically no title options in the middle of March. La Liga, let's remember, it is also very difficult, since Atlético de Madrid, with a less disputed match, takes eight points to Barcelona.
