Sergio Ramos will return to Santiago Bernabeu

The hosts have been superb. That’s even without several key players. Real Madrid face Sevilla on Sunday night in a game the league leaders are expected to win. Sevilla have been underwhelming throughout the campaign.

Real Madrid have endured a phenomenal season in LaLiga. Carlo Ancelotti’s men have earned 62 points from 25 league games. Los Blancos have scored the most goals and conceded the fewest. Real’s last game was a disappointing 1-1 draw away to Rayo Vallecano as Daniel Carvajal received a late red card. They will be hungry to win the upcoming fixture and get back to winning ways.

The visitors, on the other hand, are in an inconsistent spell of form currently. Quique Sanchez Flores’ men visited Valencia last weekend and they had a single shot that arrived in injury time, a poor display. They somehow earned a point at the Mestalla. It will be a very difficult match for the away side for sure as they also have many injured players.

Kick-off:

Players to Watch

Eduardo Camavinga (Real Madrid)

He forces transitions and advances the play more than being the usual version of a box-to-box player. Using his pressing resistance and decisive close control, he turns and changes his body orientation and switches the ball to the weak side smoothly. He is not the traditional version of a holding midfielder but more like a tireless workhorse and fearless ball carrier.

Youssef En-Nesyri (Sevilla)

Youssef En-Nesyri is a significant threat in transition. He has the necessary pace to be able to run onto through-balls and push back opposition backlines, creating space for Sevilla’s other forwards and midfielders even if he doesn’t receive the ball himself. En-Nesyri also shows good composure in front of goal, usually making the right decision about when to round a keeper, when to square the ball to a teammate, or when it’s better to take a shot himself.
