Sevilla host title chasers Real Madrid in latest La Liga clash

| 02.05.2015

In what promises to be an intriguing match in La Liga, Sevilla, unbeaten at home in all competitions this season, are 11/4 to collect three points against Real Madrid.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo has bagged at least a brace in this fixture five seasons on the spin, including a hat-trick in four of those campaigns against the Bathtubs.

Sevilla forward Carlos Bacca, meanwhile, has been in impressive form of late, with the Colombian dispatching 24 goals already this term, and bagged a brace in the same fixture last season. He has fantastic 15/8 odds to score anytime here.

Fellow striker Kevin Gameiro, whose last-gasp goal clinched Sevilla’s place in the Europa League semi finals, meanwhile, is 9/4 to score anytime.

Los Blancos, though, need to keep the pressure on Barcelona at the top, and currently trail the club by two points. They have already beaten Sevilla twice this term, winning 2-1 at home in the league and 2-0 in the European Super Cup.

In the first match, Ronaldo hit a double and is 3/1 to score two or more, while Jese Rodriguez and James Rodriguez (who aren’t related) are both 9/4 in the anytime market.

Real goalkeeper Iker Casillas says this is the team’s biggest game of the season: “It will be very tough, just as all our remaining fixtures will be,” he said.

“Saturday’s match is our most important. They are a very strong side at home and have been solid throughout the season.

“They are also fighting for a Champions League place and are through the semi-finals of the Europa League. It will be a fantastic game for the neutrals, but there are three vital points up for grabs as we need to win all our games and hope that Barcelona slip up”.

“We want to make it difficult for Barcelona by picking up three hugely important points in our bid to win the La Liga title. We need to continue winning and wait for Barcelona to make a mistake. Córdoba, like Sevilla, also have a lot to play for”.
