Sevilla vs Real Madrid (By: Stanioooo)
Sevilla host Real Madrid at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan with only 3 matches left for both clubs.
Sevilla is favorite to win this match in bookies eyes, but they don't have to hurry up too much. The fact about the changing odds in the last days is because Real Madrid will play with lot of their players from the second team. Borja Mayoral is espected to start, together with Asensio, Vasquez, Covacic, Ceballos, Theo Hernandes. I will not hide the fact that I love Real Madrid and I support them a lot, but this pick is not made because I am addicted to this club. I know the quality of Real Madrid second team players which play less in comparison with Modric, Isco, Marcelo, Ronaldo...They are ready for the big football and they proved it so many times when someone of the main stars in Real was rested or being suspended. Now they will have the chance to play all together in the starting line-up and everyone of them will want to prove that they can even fight for participation in the first team like Isco did and succeeded. Now we will see Real Madrid's real spirit, a typical team play, collectiveness, not performance full of players who want to prove their individual qualities.
Sevilla changed their coach. Vincenco Montella was sacked and Joaquin Caparros took the team. Under the new coach Sevilla won against Sociedad hardly- 1:0 at home and now they are also expected to make a few changes. They are expected to change some of the players in the midfield and in attack, so it's really tough to predict who will start tonight in their team and who will be on the bench. No matter what rotations both teams will make, goals are highly expected here.
Sevilla are 6 points behind Villareal(last team which will participate in EL) with the same amount of played matches, so it will be really hard ro catch them, although Villareal have two matches with the best ones-Real and Barca. Sevilla's schedule is also not the easiest one. Not only they have to fight with Real Madrid, but in the weekend they have a local derby with their rivals of Betis. Betis are in amazing form this season, sitting in the 5th place in the table. They also embarassed Sevilla as visitors 5:3, so Sevilla will want to take revange as guests this time and I know it sounds strange, but I expect Sevilla to be much more motivated against Betis in the weekend than against Real tonight. Real are 3 points behind Atletico Madrid and with one match in hand, so three points here will mean equality with them. The rule says that if two teams are with equal points in the end, first we have to see goals between them in direct matches, but away goal rule doesn't count here. Both teams made draws during the season- 1:1 at Bernabeu and 0:0 at Wanda, so we have to look at the goal difference. Real have +45, while Atletico is with +35. That practically means that three points here will be enough to see Real at the second place, something they haven't reached for months.
Ronaldo, Carvajal are out for sure, while Bale is suspended, but as I said they will not only miss the match. Most of the starting line-up will be out of the team or will be substitutions. Sevilla will be without Sarabia, who is suspended, together with Carole and Navas.
Zidane won't give up so easy and gift points, I am sure about that. I also trust a lot in Madrid's second team players, because they have enough quality to beat even the best teams in Spain. Sevilla is not in that form from the previous seasons sitting in the 8th place, but they are highly dangerous in that kind of matches. I am going with Real Madrid+ BTTS. I love when Real Madrid are the underdogs in bookies eyes, the odds are against them and most people think they will fail. This season they proved even in that kind of matches( away against Juve, Bayern, Barca) they don't have to be underestimated and can also win most of them. Three points are not required for Real, they look only for the trophies and it's not a big deal if they will finish 2nd or 3rd in the table, but it's always sweet to be in front of your local rival and a win will also guarantee they will finish in front of Valencia, which team still have theoretically chances to be in front of Real, although they are close to 0%.
If you want something with big chance of success, just play BTTS+over 2.5 goals at 1.50 odds in bet365. I will risk here and if you don't want, just miss that pick. I am going with Real, because I believe in the 2nd team players and also we will see bunch of goals in both nets!
