Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a 5-0 win over Granada Real Madrid moved one step closer to winning the La Liga title. Their fierce rivals Barcelona failed to beat Villarreal at Camp El Madrigal at the weekend (1-1), but los Blancos can’t afford any complacency on Matchday 18 as they take on Sevilla at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Los Sevillanos rolled over Real Sociedad at Estadio Municipal de Anoeta (4-0), with the team cementing second place in the La Liga standings. Jorge Sampaoli’s men are tough to beat at home and it remains to be seen if they are capable of recording their eight home win of the season. Zinedine Zidane’s men aim to clinch top position in the standings, but they would not be too disappointed with one point from Sunday’s football game against Sevilla. Cristiano Ronaldo found the net in the victory over Granada and we predict that CR7 will pose a big threat for the opposition defenders.
