Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Santiago Bernabeu when Real Madrid and Sevilla take on each other in a highly-anticipated La Liga game. Los Blancos did well to build on El Clasico triumph, with the team rolling over Elche 3-0 in midweek to retain top position in the standings, but they do not want to stop now. Golden Ball winner Karim Benzema, who scored his fifth goal of the season in midweek, will be the man to watch in the home side.
Carlo Ancelotti has no fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday’s clash. Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement ever since Jorge Sampaoli took over the reins, with the team sharing the spoils with both Athletic Club and Valencia, while beating Mallorca. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Real Madrid look unstoppable at the moment. Defender Kike Salas is banned for the visitors following his sending off in the midweek draw with los Che.
