Real Madrid v Sevilla Team News

Los Blancos continued to collect tie results as they drew 0-0 away to Athletic Bilbao at the last weekends to make it three draws from their last five domestic clashes. A few days earlier Real Madrid completed a fairly acceptable task in which they progressed to the knock-out phase of the ongoing CL campaign but they have been overtaken by Tottenham in Group H to finish second.

It was a good campaign for Meringues, though, winning four of six with 13 points to the tally. And despite performing well on the European stage, Zinedine Zidane's men have been struggling in La Liga with them sitting in fourth only thanks to a better goal difference to Sevilla in fifth. They have fallen behind by eight points now from leaders Barcelona, which is all but unacceptable for such giants like the Madrid club.

Considering the clubs' h2h record, it's fair to say that Los Blancos have been the dominant side when playing Sevilla at the Bernabéu, as in their last eight home encounters Real Madrid have won all those visits of Los Rojiblancos with a combined score of 28-8. Moreover, the club from Sevilla appear to be Cristiano Ronaldo's favourable opponents as he has netted a remarkable 25 goals across all 17 games against the Andalusia side.

Along with Los Blancos, Sevilla themselves finished their group being in second with 9 points overall across the six Champions League group games, only three adrift of the top-placed Liverpool.

Four wins in the last five league round have brought Los Nervionenses a decent 12 points that help manager Eduardo Berizzo stay in safety of dismissal. His players began to show desirable football but the main concern for Sevilla is injuries to their first-choice centre-backs Nicolás Pareja and Daniel Carriço, who both have been ruled out of the Madrid trip.

Teams' Possible Starting Lineups:

Real Madrid: Navas - Marcelo, Nacho, Vallejo, Hakimi - Kovacic, Kroos, Modric - Isco - Ronaldo, Benzema (4-3-1-2 formation)

Sevilla: Rico - Escudero, Kjaer, Lenglet, Mercado - Vázquez, Pizarro, Banega - Nolito, Yedder, Sarabia (4-3-3 formation)

Missing Players of Real Madrid and Sevilla:

Real Madrid: Luca Zidane, Raphael Varane, Daniel Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Casemiro, Jesús Vallejo, Gareth Bale.

Sevilla: Daniel Carriço, Nico Pareja.

Conclusion and Match Preview:

This is surely a six points clash that will allow the winning team to reinforce their Champions League aspirations for next year's group stages, to pull closer to runaway leaders Barca and keep their pursuing teams at a farther distance away. Certainly, this is pretty hard to call an even game given the home soil advantage and recent face-to-face record at Bernabéu. So we're backing Real Madrid to edge this one with a -1.5 Asian handicap win bet.
