Real Madrid vs Sevilla prediction comes before the next La Liga round matchup. This match will take place on Saturday, January 18, at Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, Spain. In this match preview, we bring you some betting tips and correct score predictions, all based on the analysis of these two Spanish heavyweights.
Real Madrid vs Sevilla Betting Tips
Real Madrid are trailing behind Barcelona in La Liga, but they have a good chance to overtake them at the top of the table. The two have the same number of points, meaning that if Barca slip, a good result of Los Blancos would bring this team to the summit.
The trouble is that they’re taking on one of the toughest teams in the league this Saturday. Real Madrid have only 5 points more than Sevilla, who are currently 4th in the table. Sevilla are in a pretty decent form, especially when it comes to away matches.
In fact, when it comes to the performances on the road, Sevilla is the team with the most points won this season. Real Madrid, on the other hand, have been pretty good at home. With 6 wins and 3 draws, Los Blancos are the second-best home team in La Liga.
The last time these two met, it was 1:0 for Real Madrid, in a game that was played in Seville. The only goal of the match was scored by Benzema, Real Madrid’s top scorer this season. Unfortunately for Los Blancos, they will be without him against Sevilla this time.
Benzema is not the only player injured in Los Blancos’ squad. They will have to play without Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale as well. And the worst thing is that even those players who are not injured are probably not 100% fit.
The thing is that Real Madrid have just returned from Saudi Arabia where they played an exhausting 120-minute Super Cup game with Atletico Madrid.
Sevilla didn’t have such problems. This team easily passed Escobedo in Copa Del Rey a week ago. Furthermore, all of Sevilla’s players are injury-free and ready for the big game.
