Real Madrid vs Sevilla Preview

 

Real Madrid vs Sevilla

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

Date: 9th December 2017

Kick-off time – 15:15 GMT

Nothing separates these two teams in terms of points ahead of this game.

They both have 28 points from 14 matches and they have both qualified for the round of sixteen in the Champions League albeit as second placed teams in their groups.

These sides have leaky defences and they will both look to outscore each other.

After a very physical game in their last league encounter, Real Madrid enter this game with some major defence selection headaches.

Sergio Ramos was red carded in that game while Dani Carvajal and Casimero are also suspended for this game.

The last thing that they would have wanted was for Rafael Varane to get injured in their last Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund but all four players will now miss this clash.

With a fully fit defence, Los Blancos have not done better at the back either as they have conceded 2 goals in each of their last three home league games although they managed to win 3-2 the last time out.

Following an unconvincing start to the new season, Christiano Ronaldo is getting back among the goals and this should delight Real Madrid.

Sevilla head into this game in good form after winning seven and losing just one of their last ten competitive matches.

Although they do not always enjoy their trips to Real Madrid, they will feel they can match Real Madrid for large parts of this game.

They signed a couple of players over the summer and it has taken them some time to gel together however there has been some fluidity in their play in recent weeks and that should continue in this game.

They have netted at least two times in 8 of their last 10 games including the 3-3 draw against Liverpool and another 3 goals against Villarreal.

However, they have also conceded 1.57 goals per game this season and they will do well to keep a clean sheet here either.
