Head to Head Record
Real Madrid have scored more away goals (113) against Sevilla than any other opponents. In their last 18 visits to Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, Real Madrid have lost 11 times, more than at any other ground. Since Zidane’s return as Real Madrid manager, the club have won only one of seven away games.
Real Madrid did respond by beating Sevilla 2-0 at the
A lot was said of Sevilla when players such as André Silva, Pablo Sarabia, Quincy Promes and Wissam Ben Yedder all departed in the summer, leaving fans wondering where the goals would come from. The club responded by bringing in a Monchi-approved battalion of new players, including Joan Jordán from Eibar, Javier Hernández from West Ham and Luuk de Jong; formerly of PSV Eindhoven.
Madrid’s form has been mixed since Zinedine Zidane took the reins once again. Despite being unbeaten in the league this season with two draws and two wins, Los Blancos’ form has still left fans scratching their heads as to whether the Frenchman is the right person to take the club forward.
An unconvincing 3-2 win over Levante at home last time round gave fans a glimmer of hope, but Sunday’s encounter will prove a big test. Zidane’s side have failed to keep a clean sheet all season too, shipping six goals in the first four league games on top of the three they let in against PSG.
Here’s how each team has performed in their last four league games:
|Espanyol 0-2 Sevilla (18/8)||Celta Vigo 1-2 Real Madrid (17/8)|
|Granada 0-1 Sevilla (23/8)||Real Madrid 1-1 Real Valladolid (24/8)|
|Sevilla 1-1 Celta Vigo (30/8)||Villarreal 2-2 Real Madrid (1/9)|
|Alavés 0-1 Sevilla (15/9)||Real Madrid 3-2 Levante (14/9)|
Madrid have looked shaky and look short of ideas thus far this season, while Sevilla will want to put on a show for the fans after drawing in their only home game so far this season
Prediction: Sevilla 2-0 Real Madrid
