Barcelona's brilliant forward line must be on top form to take all three points from Sevilla

In-form La Liga giants Sevilla and Barcelona are about to do battle, and this upcoming clash is a must-win, though both have differing objectives.

The Bathtubs are priced at 4/1 with Bet 365 to secure a shock result and beat Barca for the first time since 2010. Having recorded seven triumphs on the trot, rampant Sevilla will not want to come undone now, as they chase a top four spot.

Unai Emery’s men are undefeated at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan this season, and home fans will surely turn it into a formidable fortress for the Catalan club’s visit.

Barca themselves are four points clear of rivals Real Madrid in the title race, and will be relying on their trio of supremely talented forwards to fire them ahead at the Ramon Sanchez.

The Nou Camp club smashed Sevilla 5-1 earlier this season, and have put 12 past the Andalusian outfit in their last three tussles, so are a sensational 7/2 with SkyBet to win by three or more.

Brazil wonderboy Neymar is the latest Barcelona star to be put under the microscope, as the Samba Boys striker has failed to find the net in La Liga since February, a stretch of six games without a goal.

After disappointing in El Clasico, Neymar has come under criticism for inconsistency, and has been far from his best, which is arguably saved for a Brazil shirt.

After sitting out last time against Almeria, with the official stance being that the fearsome forward was rested, back the resilient Brazilian to respond by firing home first at 5/1 to with Bet365. Neymar is also available at a nifty 16/5 to net two or more with William Hill.

Luckily for Luis Enrique, he has Lionel Messi at his disposal and the unbelievable Argentina attacker is a best market price at 16/1 with William Hill to hit yet another hat-trick against the Bathtubs, after totting up a trio of goals against them earlier this season.

Luis Suarez has also picked up the mantle during Neymar’s dry spell, and is offered at 6/5 in the anytime market by Bet365 after bagging a brace last time out.

As for Sevilla’s striking options, top scorer Carlos Bacca is 9/1 to fire home first with Coral, while William Hill have Kevin Gameiro at 2/1 to be on target anytime.
