The struggling side of Santiago Solari is all set to host the in-form side of Sevilla at Santiago Bernabeu tonight.
We all know that Real Madrid are finding it hard to find their form back this season. Over that, most of their key players are getting injured one after the other, which has just increased their problems.
Sevilla, on the other hand, started their season on a great note. However, they also lost their momentum since last seven or so weeks. Still, they have players, who are in great form and it will just take them one good game to get back their form.
In the last La Liga fixture, Real Madrid defeated Real Betis 2-1 in an away fixture. While Sevilla lost to 15th positioned Athletic Bilbao 2-0 at San Mames Stadium. This win of Los Blancos helped them in equalizing with Sevilla. At present, the hosts are in the fourth position with 33 points from 19 fixtures. While the visitors are in the third position due to better goal difference.
The two teams have faced each other in 27 encounters and none of them have ended in a draw. Real Madrid have won a majority of 16 games while Sevilla emerged victorious in 11 fixtures. Also, Los Blancos have won 12 out of their 13 games against Los Rojiblancos in all competitions. Moreover, the visitors have failed to win their last six away league fixtures.
The hosts have been a better side in the past but looking at the current form and condition of the two sides. I believe that it is going to be an aghast and fierce battle.
Real Madrid are in deep trouble as the majority of their main players are sidelined from this fixture due to injury. Toni Kroos, Thibaut Courtois, Mariano, Jesus Vallejo, and Marcos Llorente are injured and will not feature in this game.
Karim Benzema fractured his finger in the last game, which has made his presence in this game doubtful. Moreover, Gareth Bale and Marcos Alonso are also under doubt because of their injury.
Sevilla, on the other hand, have a couple of players sidelined for this fixture. Maxime Gonalons and Nolito are both going to miss this fixture due to injury and Roque Mesa will join them due to suspension.
