There are shock leaders of the Spanish division at this early stage, with Sevilla leading the way. However, Real Madrid could restore order in the division with a win on Sunday, but can they get the three points? Let’s see what the Sevilla vs Real Madrid prediction for the match on September 22nd has in store.
Sevilla and Real Madrid Preview
Sevilla have started the season remarkably well under new manager Julen Lopetgui. The manager was brought in over the summer following a disastrous 2018 for the Spaniard. He started the summer in 2018 as manager of the Spanish national side before leaving to become manager at Real Madrid. His tenure at the Bernabeu didn’t last longer than six months. But, he is showing now that he has all the qualities of a top manager. Sevilla are yet to lose this season and have won three and drew one in La Liga.
That draw came before the international break against Celta Vigo. But, they bounced back to winning ways last time out against Alaves. Joan Jordan scored the only goal of the game before half time. A clash with Real Madrid will highlight just how good this Sevilla side are.
Real Madrid have endured another tough week, where the defensive issues they have are being questioned once again. They raced into a lead in their last La Liga fixture against Levante. The three goals in the first half came through a brace from Karim Benzema and a fine strike from Casmeiro. However, in the second half, they were terrible. They allowed Levante back into the game with two goals and were just able to hold on for the win.
These defensive issues resurfaced again in the Champions League on Wednesday evening as PSG hammered them 3-0 in Paris. There was a brace for Madrid old boy Angel di Maria before Thomas Meunier added a third in injury time. There are underlying issues at Madrid, and Zinedine Zidane is already cutting an incredibly frustrated figure. They will need to get back to winning ways, but Sevilla’s attacking quality means that it won’t be easy.
Head to Head
The two sides have met on 48 occasions in the past, and Real Madrid holds the advantage of having won on 29 occasions. There have been three draws, and Sevilla have won 16 times. There is an average of just under four goals per game in this fixture and the last two matches have ended in a draw.
Sevilla vs Real Madrid Prediction
Real Madrid games have become incredibly difficult to predict since you’re never sure which side is going to turn up. Their defensive form has been shocking, and Sevilla could really take advantage of that. Their strong start to the season could be proven to be no fluke on Sunday night as they fight hard for a famous win.
