Barcelona: Barca has been the king of this competition as of late and with Real Madrid's struggles, Barca is the heavy favorite once again. But facing Sevilla in the quarterfinals will be no easy task. We saw Barca rest its important players against Levante last round and ended up losing the first leg, so we'll likely see Ernesto Valverde's team go for the win here and play the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
Sevilla: Pablo Machin did a fine job as coach of Girona and has Sevilla off to a good start in year one. The club is playing an attractive style of soccer and looking to win the battle for possession. Expect Sevilla to try and stick with that plan but by playing a bit more cautious in the final third, looking to be able to properly defend Barcelon'a counters.
