Copa del Rey 2018/19: Barcelona vs Sevilla

Another good article from a totalfootballanalysis.com writer. Barca crushing the opposition. With this positive and aggressive play you would have to think they are favorites for the Champions League after last year’s disappointing finish.

There something funny that happens to Barcelona when they face an opponent wearing white at the Camp Nou that just flips the switch and the Catalan machine becomes unhinged. First, it happened to Real Madrid in La Liga, and now Sevilla have felt the same wrath.

All levity aside, it really was an entertaining night as Barcelona left nothing to chance and instead crushed their guests to secure a spot in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey. Their hunt for a fifth consecutive title continues as yet another “remuntada” (comeback) made sure the Blaugrana entered the final four.

This tactical analysis will use statistics to explain how Barcelona put six goals past their Andalusian counterparts and ensured their hopes of a treble are still very much alive, now maybe even more than ever.
