Real Madrid take on Sevilla at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on Sunday night, with Zinedine Zidane‘s side able to end the weekend as leaders of LaLiga Santander with a victory.
Los Blancos are currently in third place on 74 points, three behind leaders Atletico Madrid and one behind second-placed Barcelona, so their advantageous head-to-head record against both Los Rojiblancos and the Blaugrana will come into effect if they win or draw.
Sevilla‘s defeat to Athletic Club last Monday was a disappointing blow as a victory would have seen them go just one point behind Real Madrid, but instead Julen Lopetegui‘s side trail Los Blancos by four points. Nevertheless, they will want to win to keep up the pressure on the top three.
Incredibly, Real Madrid find themselves without five defenders for the visit of Sevilla – Lucas Vazquez, Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Ferland Mendy – so it is expected that Fede Valverde and Marcelo will come in to play alongside Eder Militao and Nacho Fernandez, who have performed brilliantly in recent weeks.
There were three doubts in the Sevilla camp coming into Sunday’s fixture, with Jules Kounde, Joan Jordan and Youssef En-Nesyri all carrying slight knocks, but it is thought that they are in good enough condition to play. The unknown is whether Lopetegui decides to risk them, particularly with players like Ivan Rakitic in reserve in midfield.
