class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Los Blancos will be aiming to bounce back from their Champions League elimination and Goal expects a tight game to be in store in the Spanish capital
Real Madrid welcome Sevilla to the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano on Sunday evening in what could be a pivotal game in the La Liga title race.
Los Blancos begin the weekend level on points with Barcelona and two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, who faced each other on Saturday, and Zinedine Zidane knows a win is vital to keep his side’s title push going.
Sevilla are also in the hunt, just four points behind the side from the capital, with Julen Lopetegui’s men also needing three points if they wish to keep alive their outside chances of being crowned champions.
Real Madrid vs Sevilla Latest Odds
Madrid have won each of their last 11 home league games against Sevilla and another victory is available at 19/20 (1.95) with bet365.
The visitors, meanwhile, can be backed at 11/4 (3.75) with the draw at 13/5 (3.60).
Real Madrid vs Sevilla Team News
The current Spanish champions remain without Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez and Rafael Varane, although their midweek Champions League defeat to Chelsea saw them welcome back captain Sergio Ramos and Ferland Mendy to the starting eleven.
The visitors have doubts over two key players, with defender Jules Kounde and top scorer Youssef En-Nesyri both training alone during the week, but Lopetegui is hopeful of having both men available.
Real Madrid vs Sevilla Preview
Sunday’s game is a meeting of two of the best defensive sides in La Liga and there should be plenty of interest in backing a low-scoring clash.
Ramos has been missing for Los Blancos but his absence has not been too keenly felt with Madrid keeping four consecutive domestic clean sheets – their best run in La Liga this season.
Sevilla, for their part, have kept 17 clean sheets this term and are one of the most in-form teams in the Primera Division over the last month with seven wins and a draw from their last nine matches.
Both teams are likely to keep things tight, especially with plenty riding on the outcome of the game, and opposing a goal-filled encounter makes plenty of sense.
Real Madrid vs Sevilla Tips and Predictions
Under 2.5 goals paid out comfortably when the two sides last met in December and a repeat is offered at a healthy 9/10 (1.90).
