Sevilla will host the defending La Liga champions, who have been winless in their last three games in La Liga
Stadium: Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
· Real Madrid have been without a win in their last three games in La Liga, currently sitting fourth in the table.
· Sevilla’s impressive home record against Los Blancos was ended last year, losing after four straight wins at home.
· The Andalusian outfit, who have suffered three defeats in the league this season, are currently trailing Madrid by a point.
Sevilla are coming on the back of the 4-0 humiliation against Chelsea on Wednesday’s Champions League.
However, they look to impose more pressure on lacklustre Real Madrid side, who are without a win in the last four games in all competitions.
Nonetheless, the Andalusian outfit have been clinical in La Liga this season, winning all of their last three games. Furthermore, Julen Lopetegui has a wide range of attackers to gamble with as the likes of Youssef En Nesyri, Munir El Haddadi, Luuk de Jong and Lucas Ocampos have chipped in with goals.

Real Madrid are currently going through a rough patch at the moment after a string of defeats, with the latest one being the 2-0 upset against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.
Zinedine Zidane is desperate to win the upcoming games to keep his managerial role intact although the oppositions – Sevilla, Gladbach and Atletico Madrid – are presenting the French manager tougher scenarios.
Sergio Ramos, who returned to training recently, is unlikely to be match fit while Casemiro would be in the starting line-up to add more physicality in the midfield to contain the thunderous attack of Sevilla.
