Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
There will be fireworks when Real Madrid and Sevilla face each other at Alfredo di Stefano Stadium on Sunday evening. Los Blancos are two points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid, and seeing that Diego Simeone’s troops take on Barca at Camp Nou, a win over Sevilla could see Zinedine Zidane’s men regain top position. The good news for the hosts is that captain Sergio Ramos has overcome his injury, while both Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez remain in the recovery room. Raphael Varane should be fit to face Sevilla as well.
The Andalusians, on the other hand, suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to Athletic Club on Monday, with the Lions ruining their title hopes. Since Sevilla are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Madrid, we are tempted to put our money on Karim Benzema and Co. Sergi Gomez should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Luka Modric):
Luka Modric is regarded as one of the best central midfielders in world football. The Croatian ace is a product of Dinamo Zagreb’s youth school and it has to be noted that he played 94 league games for the Modri between 2003 and 2008. In 2008 he signed a six-year deal with Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £16.5 million.
Luka made his Tottenham debut on 16 August, 2008 in a 2-1 loss to Middlesbrough at Riverside Stadium. The Croatian star scored only 13 goals in 127 league appearances for the Spurs, but he is well known for his brilliant passing. In 2012 he signed for Real Madrid for a fee of £30 million and he made his debut against Barcelona in the 2012 Spanish Super Cup, return leg.
Modric quickly established himself as a first-team regular and, no doubt, he helped the capital club win two Champions League trophies (2013/2014, 2015/2016). You should bear in mind that he was named Croatian Footballer of the Year in 2007, 2008, 2011 and 2014.
