Sevilla vs Real Madrid
KICK OFF: Wednesday 26th Sept 2018 | 22:00 CET
LA LIGA WK6 | RAMON SANCHEZ PIZJUAN
Seville stubborn in their own backyard but do they have the quality to get a result against Real Madrid?
All eyes will be at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan as Sevilla takes on Real Madrid in La Liga. The trip to Sevilla has been difficult for Los Blancos in recent years, and the game is set up to be a highly competitive encounter.
There’s real potential for Sevilla to avoid defeat. Los Blancos are now without Ronaldo, and his absence is an advantage to the Andalusians. The Portuguese maestro alone had netted 27 times in 18 meetings against Sevilla, and his successes always ensured Madrid stayed ahead in this fixture in recent years. With that particular threat now lifted, Sevilla can be inspired to go for the win against Real Madrid.
Madrid will be forced to grind out a result in this match. Despite the reduced threat, they still have a team of very talented players who can combine effectively to notch up a win. Los Blancos will be looking for their first away victory, and it will be needed before they host Atletico Madrid and travel to Russia for their Champions League match.
This fixture can undoubtedly produce goals. Sevilla has decent attacking quality, and Madrid has not gone a single game without netting. Madrid has too much quality, and I see them outscoring the hosts.
Key Match Facts
- Each of the last ten encounters has produced three or more goals.
