Sevilla vs Real Madrid Tips

Real Madrid head to Seville for what looks like a difficult clash and many Los Blancos fans will just want the season to end now.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side showed battling qualities to get past Rayo Vallecano in midweek but the manner of that victory was concerning.

While Real have cruised like a Rolls Royce in recent years, they’ve stuttered over the finish line this campaign and are likely to have little to show for their season’s work.

Sevilla have a Europa League final to prepare for but that doesn’t mean that the hosts won’t be taking this game seriously – after all, they’re playing against Real Madrid.

The home side have enjoyed great success in recent months and it wouldn’t be a huge shock to see Sevilla claim three points in what should be an exciting contest.

The visitors are involved in a battle to finish second behind Barcelona and the pressure is on Real to fend off Atletico Madrid over the final two matchdays.

This is a potential banana skin for the Spanish giants though and I’ll be backing Sevilla to spring a shock. The La Liga betting price on a home win is certainly very appealing.

Real Madrid Club History

Real Madrid were founded in 1902, and has been a stalwart of La Liga betting, having been a founding member.

Los Blancos, a nickname inspired by their iconic white home kits, have never been relegated, and boast a tally of 35 La Liga titles, which is an all-time record.

They also have won the most European Cup/Champions League titles with the most recent coming in 2022. 

The club’s first league titles came in the 1930s, but it was the 1950s and 1960s when Real established itself as a true powerhouse.

The club from the capital won numerous domestic and continental honours during the period, and was home to some of the era’s greatest players including Alfredo Di Stéfano and Ferenc Puskás.

Those standards have been maintained ever since. Since 1953, Real have never been longer than six years without a La Liga title, and their lengthiest spell without a Champions League or European Cup was between 1966 and 1998.

Even then, they lifted back-to-back UEFA Cups in the 1980s.

The turn of the millennium saw Florentino Perez take charge, ushering in the first Galácticos era. Perez brought in one big star per year, an approach he mirrored during his second stint in 2009.

The first period led to the signings of Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham and many others. The second was headlined by Ballon d’Or winners Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo.
