Real Madrid v Sevilla tips – Real gunning for La Liga title

Real Madrid came back after lockdown last season to leapfrog Barcelona and claim the 2019/20 La Liga title, with the side from the Spanish capital hoping that history repeats itself this time around and a victory against Sevilla would have them bang on track to be champions again.

Zinedine Zidane’s team know that at least one of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid will drop points the day before considering that the two teams face each other, with Real having come into the weekend level on points with Barca and with a chance to beat another title rival in the form of Sevilla.

Many Punters Looking to Bet on Real Madrid

Real Madrid are proving a popular bet to beat Sevilla on Sunday 9 May, with the only real negative for Zidane’s side being the fact that they have to clash with Chelsea in a Champions League semi-final clash only a few days earlier, although it still hasn’t stopped punters coming for the champions of Spain.

If you compare the La Liga match betting odds, then some bookies have 6/5 about Real Madrid winning this clash and they claimed a 2-0 victory over Osasuna last weekend which saw Eder Militao and Casemiro score relatively late goals to seal three points.

Real are still having to contend without captain Sergio Ramos, while Zidane rested Toni Kroos and Luka Modric for the previous clash although the two midfielders are likely to be reinstated for a clash against a team who have an outside chance of winning the league title themselves.

Can Sevilla Pull Off a La Liga Betting Upset?

It would be quite the story if Sevilla were able to somehow claim the 2020/21 Spanish La Liga title and it would be testament to the coaching of Julen Lopetegui, with the former Real Madrid manager looking to get one over a club who didn’t really give him a fair crack of the whip after he stood down as manager of the international team.

Although Sevilla are the betting outsiders to win this Spanish La Liga football match, the La Liga betting sites respect the chances of the visitors enough to offer a best price 12/5 and that’s partly down to their recent domestic form which has seen the team win seven of their previous eight encounters.

This has included a 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid along with a 4-3 comeback win over Celta Vigo, with former Barca star Ivan Rakitic having helped the team to this string of successes and the Croatian finds himself locking horns with compatriot Modric in this encounter.

Real Madrid Could Win Tight Encounter

In the reverse fixture, it was a tense encounter won by Los Merengues thanks to an own goal from goalkeeper Bono, with only five shots registered on target throughout the encounter and we might expect a similarly tight clash considering there is so much at stake for both teams.

Sevilla concede less than one goal per game on average when they take to the road and they will not want to leave themselves open against attacking players such as Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior, although Real Madrid have more big game experience in these situations which explains why they are favourites.

What Are the Best Real Madrid v Sevilla Bets?

If you compare the latest Real Madrid v Sevilla betting odds, then you can get 12/5 about the game ending all square and a tight encounter could lead to few goals being scored, although we’re leaning towards the home side getting the job done.

You can get 8/1 about a Real 1-0 victory and that could go close, with the prospect of the game being level at half-time before Real Madrid run out as winners being available at 22/5 and that’s a price worth taking.
