The biggest La Liga match of the weekend takes place on Sunday night at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, as third-place Sevilla entertain second-place Barcelona in what promises to be a very tough match for both teams.

Barça arrive in Seville coming off a Champions League loss to Manchester City when the Catalan giants were completely dominated in the second half. Sevilla beat Dinamo Zagreb with ease, and face Barça with plenty of confidence.

The coaching battle will be very interesting, and after losing to Pep Guardiola in midweek, Luis Enrique will face a Pep disciple, Jorge Sampaoli, who loves to have possession, press high up the pitch and continue to attack. This is a historically tough match for Barça, and thanks to Sevilla's form, it's even more difficult this time around.

This will be a great game, and below you get all the info necessary to get ready for it.


Sevilla squad: Sergio Rico, Sirigu, Mariano, Carriço, Kranevitter, Vietto, Nasri, Iborra, Ben Yedder, Kiyotake, Nzonzi, Correa, Escudero, Ganso, Vitolo, Sarabia, Rami, Franco Vázquez
