The second Copa del Rey semi-final match between Barcelona vs Sevilla will take place in the early hours of Thursday, March 4, 2021. Barcelona carried a heavy burden because they lost 0-2 in the previous match.
At the first meeting two weeks ago, Sevilla took the lead thanks to goals from Jules Kunde and Ivan Rakitic. Julien Lopetegui's squad has only to maintain this advantage to advance to the final.
Reversing the situation from missing two goals is not an easy task, but it is also not impossible. Barcelona once did it against Sevilla in the quarter-finals of the 2018-2019 Copa del Rey.
They fell 0-2 in the first match at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium but were able to qualify for the semifinals with a 6-1 win at the Camp Nou Stadium.
Especially at the weekend, Barcelona immediately paid for the defeat by defeating Sevilla 2-0 in the match in the Spanish League.
In addition, Barcelona also has an excellent record against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey. From 11 meetings, Barcelona recorded six wins while Sevilla only bagged three wins, the other two matches ended in a draw.
Barcelona also had eliminated Sevilla four times in the event while Sevilla only eliminated Barcelona once, namely in the 2009-2010 season.
The bad news for Barcelona, they get additional player injuries. Midfielder Pedri is certain to miss next Thursday's match due to a calf muscle injury. Central defender Ronald Araujo, who recently recovered and replaced Gerard Pique, was also said to have returned to the treatment room.
Whereas previously Koeman had already lost Miralem Pjanic, Ansu Fati, Philippe Coutinho, and Sergi Roberto.
