Real Madrid will play Sevilla with several players injured

Tenth-placed in the season's second-to-last game, Sevilla will play host to Real Madrid in an effort to pick up their winning ways

(Football news) Real Madrid is prepared to travel to Sevilla and face them. Real Madrid won’t be playing for anything in particular, instead, they just want to finish the year well. The host team, which still has a chance to qualify for Europe, will seek to earn all three points. 

Sevilla currently holds the tenth-place spot in La Liga with 49 points after 36 games. With a victory over Los Blancos, they can keep their chances of playing in the UEFA Conference League alive since they are only one point below Osasuna in seventh position.

Sevilla has not lost in either of their last four games they have played in La Liga, but they have lost points in both of their most recent games. Their most recent league game ended in a 1-1 draw with Elche. And in order to continue competing for a position in Europe, they will need to win all three points. 

Jose Luis Mendilibar won’t, however, throw any of his players into the action right away because of the team’s upcoming crucial Europa League final. A 2-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano allowed Real Madrid to retake second place in the league standings. In this match against Sevilla, Los Blancos will try to keep things going by winning.

Throughout the second half of the season, the guests have fluctuated. Lately, they were eliminated from the Champions League and lately fell well behind in the race for the league championship. Madrid hasn’t been at its best this season, despite winning the Copa del Rey, and they’ll want to conclude it on a high.

Los Blancos will be looking to replicate their performance from their previous league matchup between the two teams, which they won 3-1. The Hard Tackle examines this game in more detail and makes predictions about the strategies that the two sides might employ.

Important Statistics

  • With 72 goals scored, Real Madrid has the most goals scored in the league.
  • When it comes to goal differential, Los Blancos are in second place. They have a +38 GD.
  • Sevilla’s goal difference places them tenth in the league. The GD for them is -5.
  • 32 league games for Rodrygo have resulted in 16 goals involving him. He will be hungry to increase that in the final two games.
  • With five league goals, Erik Lamela will be an important player for Sevilla.

Squad Updates

Due to injuries, Papu Gomez, Suso, Tanguy Nianzou, Marcao, and Joan Jordan will not be available for the host team Sevilla. Pape Gueye is currently on suspension for this match. Although Vinicius Junior’s suspension was overturned, the 22-year-old’s participation in this match is still in doubt due to knee inflammation. Due to the cut he received during their most recent match, even Karim Benzema is questionable.

Predicted Playing Xl

Sevilla : Dmitrovic, Montiel, Bade, Rekik, Telles, Fernando, Rakitic, Lamela, Torres, Ocampos, Mir

Real Madrid : Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Rudiger, Alaba, Camavinga, Tchouameni, Ceballos, Valverde, Alvaro, Rodrygo


Sevilla may not have lost in any of their previous four league games, but they did lose ground nonetheless. Additionally, they are anticipated to play less aggressively than usual due to the impending Europa League final. Even though they will strive for all three, they might not have enough gas left.
