Real Madrid vs Sevilla Match Analysis and Prediction

After a heated Spanish Super Cup clash with Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid will be turning their attention to the La Liga in another heated competition. This time, they will be hosting Sevilla at the Bernabeu Stadium with the match scheduled for 18th January, with kickoff at 18:00 GMT.

The Spanish Super Cu was one for the books which ended with a goalless draw at the end of the extra time. The match saw Valverde pick up a red card after a tackle on Morata. The red card turned out to be the match saviour as the game headed to penalties.

After clinching the Super Cup, another accolade that can mark Zinedine Zidane’s coaching career is by clinching the La Liga title. This will not be that easy especially with the heated battle with contenders Barcelona.

Sevilla, on the other hand, is fourth on the La Liga tied off with third-placed Atletico Madrid with 35 points. Coach Julen Lopetegui has put forward mixed results in the  La Liga, but a solid foundation has seen the side maintain a Champion’s League slot chances.

Will Zinedine continue with his impressive winning streak or will Sevilla prove to be a thorn in the side’s flesh.
