Last weekend, Sevilla destroyed Levante, while Real Madrid struggled with Espanyol. Now, these two teams meet in a La Liga match that’s guaranteed to bring the spectators a lot of excitement, possibly with many goals, as it’s been the case in their games in the last couple of years. But, which team is gonna be the happier side after the 90 minutes on Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in Seville? This Sevilla vs Real Madrid match preview might give you the answer.
Sevilla have been fantastic in the attack lately. In the previous two games, they scored a total of 11 goals. First they beat Standard in the Europa League by 5:1 on Thursday; then they thrashed Levante 6:2 in an away game.
But, now they have a much tougher challenge in front of them. Nevertheless, the confidence in the locker-room is high and it definitely should be. Sevila’s good form didn’t happen by accident. This team has some really fantastic players. The question is are they good enough to beat, or at least, play draw with Los Blancos.
Well, there’s no doubt they will try it. And with the support from the stands, they will have the motivation to try their best. Actually, speaking of support, Sevilla have always been very dangerous at home. Last season, for example, 11 of 17 matches they won in La Liga were played at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
And one of those was the win against their next opponent. The match was played in May and the score was 3:2 for Sevilla.
Trips to Andalusia aren’t in a good memory of Los Blancos’ fans. Their team lost five out of six previous away matches against Sevilla in La Liga. But, that may easily change on Wednesday as Real Madrid are in a very good form.
They did kind of disappointed their fans with the 1:0 win over Espanyol. Although they won all three points, the crowd at Santiago Bernabeu demanded more. But, to be fair, they played that match with a number of backup players, including Odriziola, Ceballos, Llorente, and Mariano. It’s obvious that Lopetegui wanted to rest his key men in order to have them ready to give their utmost in the clash with Sevilla.
This match has a huge importance for Los Blancos, not just for the points, but also for their confidence. They need to do well on Wednesday in order to get mentally prepared for the upcoming matches, some of which are gonna be pretty tough. For instance, the match after the Sevilla game is the Madrid derby played at Atletico’s stadium.

Sevilla vs Real Madrid Match Prediction
Both teams are sensational in the attack, with a number of players capable of finding the net. Furthermore, both sides like playing offensively and it seems that they love playing against one another – we saw a total of 24 goals in their five previous meetings.
Another rule you can spot by looking at their head-to-head matches is that home turf advantage really means a lot, especially when it comes to goal-scoring. For instance, Sevilla scored in every single home match against Real Madrid in La Liga since 2002. That said, betting on goals is what I’m suggesting.
