Real Madrid will host Sevilla at their home ground within the 15th round of the Spanish Primera on the upcoming Saturday. The Madridian side played the Champions League match in the mid-week, but Sevilla also took part in the Eurocup match, but unlike the Royals the Red-and-Whites had to fly to visit Maribor in the far Slovenia, therefore the mid-week game and the flight may negatively affect Berizzo’s team.
Autumn 2017 can hardly be called successful for Real Madrid, Zidane’s team couldn’t win the group stage of the Champions League, losing to Tottenham. The gap to the leading Barcelona in Primera is reaching eight points, which doesn’t suit the Madridians. But it is important to note that recently Blancos managed to gain some stability.
Sevilla managed to break into the Champions League play-offs, and it is a real success for the team to be one of the last 16 in Europe. Last Wednesday Sevilla played in Slovenia with Maribor, the match turned out difficult, the Slovenians gave battle and didn’t lose to more status opponents. Sevilla are on the fifth position in the Spanish championship tournament table with the same number of points as Real, but losing to the acting champions of Spain by secondary indicators.
Real slowly gain momentum, Blancos showed a goal performance with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, which ended in the overall victory for Real, 3:2. The upcoming game also has decent chances to be efficient, Sevilla concede a lot away and do not play that well with top teams.
Prediction for the match: Real to win with + over 2.5 goals in the match
