Real Madrid will play their next La Liga match at home at the Santiago Bernabeu where they will host Sevilla.

It has been a strong few weeks for Real Madrid as the team won the Supercopa. In the final of the tournament, Real Madrid defeated Atletico Madrid on penalties. As it currently stands, Real Madrid are 2nd on the La Liga ladder with 40 points from their 19 games. Real Madrid are tied on points with FC Barcelona as the two teams battle for the lead. In their previous La Liga match, Real Madrid defeated Getafe 3-0 away from home. It was a comfortable win for Real Madrid with the team having 56% of the possession and 7 shots on targets. Things are looking good for Real Madrid and the team will be confident in their ability to win. 

On the other side of the coin, Sevilla have had a good season and are currently 4th on the ladder with 35 points from their 19 games. In their La Liga last match, Sevilla only managed a 1-1 draw at home. It was a disappointing result for Sevilla since the team had 65% of the ball but failed to convert that into a victory. This is expected to be an extremely tough contest for Sevilla since the Santiago Bernabeu is a very tough place to visit. 

Sevilla and Real Madrid played each other earlier in the season. The match was hosted by Sevilla with Real Madrid winning the contest 1-0. Karim Benzema scored the winning goal for Real Madrid. 

Sevilla have had a good season and I see them challenging Real Madrid in this match. That being said, I see Real Madrid winning this match. Real Madrid have been in outstanding touch and the team seems extremely confident having won the Supercopa. With that in mind, Real Madrid should be good enough to get all 3 points at home. This should be a tight match and I see only 1 or 2 goals being scored. The under 2.5 goals seems like a good wager. 

Pick:
Real Madrid
