Real Madrid have not had the best of seasons; they continue to struggle after the exit of talisman Cristiano Ronaldo and Manager Zinedine and they struggled to get past Real Betis in their last league game, before falling to Leganes in the Copa Del Rey, though they secured passage to the next stage after a comfortable 3 – 0 first leg win. They have had a good home run this season but their last five league matches at home have produced two losses. Those are the only losses suffered by the side at home in the nine league matches this season. Actually, Real Madrid have just two losses in their last 18 home matches in the league. Sevilla on the other hand, are coming from back to back losses to the same Athletic Club side in the Copa Del Rey and league action, leaving a lot to be desired as per their ability to take on a much stronger Real side. They have picked just one win in their last five matches, and away from home, they have also not done so well, with just two wins in the last 11 matches. In La Liga, Sevilla are winless in their last six away matches. They have however beaten Real Madrid in each of the last two meetings, as well as in three of the last five. In the last 13 home games against Sevilla, Real Madrid have won all. The two sides have met 53 times and Real have 34 wins, Sevilla 15. Each of the last 12 matches has produced over 2.5 goals.
