Real Madrid vs Sevilla FC
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – Santiago Bernabéu
Date: 18th January 2020
Kick-off time – 15:00 GMT
Real Madrid return from their Super Cup win looking to continue their march towards the La Liga title here.
Los Blancos are on a run of 16 games without a defeat in all competitions and they are unbeaten in 9 home league games this season. They have also won their last ten head-to-head games against Sevilla ahead of this game.
Sevilla will be looking to end their miserable run of form against Real Madrid in this game and they will be banking on the fact that they are the division’s best away team to get the points here.
Sevilla is just five points behind Real Madrid in this game and they have scored an average of 1.3 goals per away game in the league this season.
Sevilla is also doing a fine job at the back as they have conceded an average of just 1.0 goal per game on the road in the league this season.
Sevilla also likes to take the initiative when they play away from home as they have led at half time in half of their away league games this season.
The first goal has come in the first 15 minutes in 5 of the last 6 head-to-heads between these teams held here so expect an exciting game.
