Real Madrid vs Sevilla Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Madrid failed to take advantage of Barcelona’s slipups as the team only managed a goalless draw with Athletic Bilbao. Karim Benzema came close to extending his good record against Bilbao and his overall form, as he struck the woodwork. This was the closest Madrid came to breaking the deadlock, while Sergio Ramos was sent off late in the game. In the Champions League action, Real Madrid finished second in the group after beating Borussia Dortmund 3-2 at home. Sevilla extended their good home run with a 2-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna. After creating a flurry of chances, Sevilla took the lead just before half-time through Wissam Ben Yedder. Michael Krohn-Dehli’s long-range effort in the second half made the game safe for the home team, who had drawn 1-1 with Manipur in the midweek Champions League. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The games between Madrid and Sevilla tend to be immensely entertaining with plenty of goals at both ends of the pitch. Madrid have scored 14 in the last five meetings, while Sevilla have netted eight in the same period. The lack of key defenders like Sergio Ramos and Daniel Carvajal could impact Madrid’s defensive record even further. I would go with a 3-1 win for Madrid. Sevilla are expected to score between 1 to 2 goals in this match, as the team has gone over/under this band only twice in the last five meetings with Real Madrid. Real Madrid have not been strong defensively with almost a goal per game conceded. I would back Sevilla to score between 1 to 2 goals.

Real Madrid 3-1 win – 8/1

Sevilla to score between 1 to 2 goals – 4/6

Real Madrid scored over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Real Madrid scored over 2.5 goals in 6 out of their last 10 games played against Sevilla

Sevilla saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played against Real Madrid

Real Madrid Preview

Real Madrid were searching for an opportunity to close the gap on Barcelona, but Zidane’s team failed to take advantage of such a situation during the weekend. Madrid remain eight points behind Barcelona, but the likes of Atletico Madrid have been able to extend their advantage following the weekend results. Madrid continue to do well in the European competitions, but the lack of consistency is starting to hurt the team big time in the La Liga 2017-18 campaign. Madrid have managed only two wins – against relegation threatened Malaga and Las Palmas – in the last five matches. Isco and Marco Asensio remain the leading scorers in the league for Madrid with four goals each.

Real Madrid Team News

Sergio Ramos, Daniel Carvajal, and Casemiro are suspended for the game. Raphael Varane (leg), Gareth Bale (calf), and Luca Zidane (shoulder) are unavailable for action due to injuries.

Sevilla Preview

Sevilla have been able to move level on points with Real Madrid as the club continues to push for a top-four finish. Sevilla are aware of the wobbles for teams above them, and Eduardo Berizzo has put his team on a strong run of form over the last few weeks. In the last six matches, Sevilla have taken more points than Real Madrid. The team has been able to juggle between domestic and European football with greater consistency and success. Wissam Ben Yedder is now the joint top scorer at the club alongside Luis Muriel with three goals.

Sevilla Team News

Nicolas Pareja (groin), Daniel Carrico (thigh), and Jose Mena Rodriguez (groin) are the players unavailable for Sevilla.
