Real Madrid vs Sevilla Prediction
Real Madrid will be welcoming Sevilla into their midst this week following their win over Atletico Madrid in the finals of the Super Cup. The hosts are in fine form in the La Liga as well and are currently unbeaten since their 1-0 defeat to Mallorca way back in October.
At the moment, Los Blancos are right behind table-toppers Barcelona with forty points in the bag and are separated only on goal difference.
On the other hand, Sevilla will be making the trip to the Bernabeu on the back of a thumping 5-0 win over Escobedo in the Copa Del Rey. The visitors have not stumbled in any of their past two La Liga fixtures either, and have admitted defeat just once in their last ten as well.
Be that as it may, Sevilla have not looked entirely confident in their clashes on the road. Miserably, they have dropped points in four of their previous seven outings in the top flight.
In sharp contrast, Real Madrid have not been at the losing end at home this season. It is also worth mentioning that Los Blancos have been tasting nothing but success in each of their past twelve meetings with this foe here.
Hence, it goes without saying Sevilla are the outright underdogs to salvage even a point.
Furthermore, goals have not been hard to come by at this stadium. All but one of their past nine h2h fixtures here have been high scoring affairs.
Meanwhile, Sevilla have been branded as the best away side in the cluster and have scored thirteen goals on the road so far to go with it. As such, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally in this one.
