How Sevilla could line up against Barcelona

Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Sevilla could line up for Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Barcelona.

Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui has plenty to think about in terms of his team selection heading into Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Barcelona.

Los Nervionenses were soundly beaten 2-0 against Barca at the weekend through goals from Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi.

However, Sevilla won by the same scoreline in last month's first leg and are therefore in a strong position to advance to the final of the domestic cup competition.

Lopetegui must now decide whether to field the same side that started that encounter at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, or instead tweak his system to protect the two-goal lead.

After being introduced as second-half substitutes on Saturday, Suso, Oliver Torres and Youssef En-Nesyri are all in line to return to the XI on Wednesday.

En-Nesyri has not scored in his last five games, but he is the favourite to get the nod over Luuk de Jong - who has two goals in three matches - through the middle.

Elsewhere, Nemanja Gudelj is battling with Fernando for a starting spot in central midfield alongside Ivan Rakitic and Joan Jordan.

Sevilla possible starting lineup: Bounou; Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Vidal; Rakitic, Gudelj, Jordan; Torres, En-Nesyri, Suso
