Zinedine Zidane’s men are up next in the Copa Del Rey. The match is going to be played on the 13th of January at 01:15 Pakistan time. That makes it around 11 hours from the publication of this blog. It was the scintillating trio of MSN who got Madrid’s arch rivals Barcelona through to the next round of the famous Spanish Football Competition yesterday. The Catalans are also the current holders of the cup as they beat Sevilla (Madrid’s opponents for the match) last year.
Ronaldo and Modric are being rested for this game while other key players such as Isco and James are also out due to injuries. However Ramos is back in the squad.
Now those of you who have an assignment or test tomorrow morning and you’re a crazy football fan then do all the related important work asap because tonight’s going to be a good night for you.
As you must be knowing that Madrid thrashed Sevilla in the first leg held last week with a score line of 3 goals to 1. AND this is the 2nd time that Madrid are playing Sevilla out of 3 in the month of January 2017.
Both of the teams won their respective matches in La Liga and will approach this game positively but a Real Madrid defeat can be possible too.
Jorge Sampaoli, Sevilla’s manager, has an extremely challenging task ahead of him to go through the next round of the competition but they definitely cannot be put out of the frame. Sevilla have always been a good opponent and Madrid WILL have to work hard.
My prediction is going to be a 2-1 win for Madrid with Ramos and Benzema on the score sheet.
Real Madrid: Casilla, Kroos, Marcelo, Varane, Ramos, Danilo, Kovacic, Benzema, Vazquez, Asensio, Caemiro
Sevilla: Nasri, N’Zonzi, Sergio Rico, Pareja, Mercado, Sarabia, Rami, Iborra, Vitolo, Vietto, Yedder
