Sevilla vs Real Madrid Prediction
Sevilla have three draws to show from their last three games, as Juventus held on to a 1-1 draw. Against Real Betis, the score was 0-0, while their most recent match finished 1-1 against Elche. Sevilla won three of their previous six matches at Estadio R. Sanchez Pizjuan in the La Liga. They drew two and suffered one defeats, scoring nine goals to eight against.
Sevilla were hoping to qualify for Europe, but this target looks increasingly difficult to reach, as we are reaching the business end of the season.
Real Madrid Form
Real Madrid collected one win from their last three matches, as Manchester City won by 4-0. Valencia were too strong as well, winning 1-0, before Real Madrid won 2-1 against Rayo Vallecano.
