Watching a match between these two teams is like trying to talk to the prettiest girl at a party; you almost certainly know what is going to happen but sometimes you are pleasantly surprised.
Barcelona usually beat their Andalusian rivals, and beat them heavily. In their last four victories over Sevilla, they have scored 16 goals, conceding just twice.
Yet it has not been all one way traffic. True, the Catalans have not lost to Sevilla in the league for more than four and a half years, but the team from the south of Spain have beaten the blaugrana in cup matches in each of the previous two seasons.
With this is mind the 18/1 offered for a hitherto unbeaten Sevilla to win on Saturday night seems a monstrously large price and one that is worth some serious consideration if not massive investment.
Those fancying an upset at the Camp Nou might be more inclined to back the draw which is available at 7/1, while a home win is priced at 3/25.
It is however worth bearing in mind that injury will deprive Sevilla of their leading striker, Alvaro Negredo.
The big man has five goals in seven games for club and country so far this season, and his forceful presence will be keenly missed up front. His replacement is likely to be the veteran Freddie Kanoute who at 34 might not possess the pace he once had, but his touch is still silky, his vision still expert and his finishing still deadly (20 goals last season proof of the old adage about class being permanent).
The Malinese forward, who has three goals in his last five games against Barca, is available at what looks like a generous 9/5 to score at any time.

It is always tough searching for genuine value when trying to back Barcelona, especially at home.
With Lionel Messi struggling with injury, invest your money in Andres Iniesta to score at any time.
The man from Castilla La Mancha was on target midweek in the Champions League with a beautifully crafted strike and while 6/5 in not the biggest price in the world, is does give you the chance of more than doubling your money should he get a goal.
As mentioned previously, goals are usually on the agenda when these two sides face each other, with 24 being scored in their last six meetings.
It is therefore tempting to take the 4/5 offered for there to be more than 3.5 goals in the match.
But Sevilla this season are a different proposition. New manager Marcelino has brought some stability to the defence which last season was one of the leakiest in the top half of the table.
The new campaign may only be seven matches old but already Sevilla have kept four clean sheets, something it took them twenty-one games to achieve last season and Barca should find them a little tougher to break down on Saturday night. That is not to say the Catalans will not score at all, but the 29/10 offered for there to be no goal in the first half could well be where the intelligent money goes.
