Sevilla vs Real Madrid
Spanish La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 9 May 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, Sevilla.
Joaquin Caparros made a victorious debut on Sevilla’s bench on Friday evening when Los Rojiblancos defeated Real Sociedad 1-0 at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. It was Ever Banega whose successfully-converted penalty made all the difference between the two teams, leaving Sevillistas in the contest for the European football next term.
The hosts are one point shy of Getafe in seventh, but with this game in hand on Azulones. Nevertheless, the schedule could hardly be tougher for Los Rojiblancos who are to play the likes of Real Madrid on Wednesday and fierce rivals Real Betis on Saturday.
Last year’s champions had a disappointing campaign in the domestic league where they stand 15 points below bitter Catalan rivals Barcelona against whom Zidane and his troops played a 2-2 draw in Sunday’s dramatic El Clasico at Camp Nou.

Sevilla vs Real Madrid: Prediction
Zidane could give some rest to his star men here in order to keep them fresh for the upcoming Champions League final with Liverpool later in the month in Kyiv. Cristiano Ronaldo suffered a slight injury in the weekend’s draw at Barcelona and he will definitely not make the starting lineup here.
Backing goals is a must when these two likes take on each other. All of Real’s last eight matches in all competitions saw the BTTS option “come in” and there is no reason for such trend to be changed against Sevilla. You can back Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS at 1.53.
Since the match has a much greater importance for the host who are in the midst of the battle for the top-seven finish, we will alternatively try with Sevilla not to lose at 1.53.
