We are preparing for a big derby
We are preparing for a big derby in the Spanish La Liga because Sevilla will host Real Madrid at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. This match on Saturday is a part of La Liga’s 12th round. Let’s preview it.
Sevilla are hosting the reigning champions in a good moment for the club. Los Rojiblancos won their last three matches in the league and this helped them climb to 5th place in La Liga. At this moment the Andalusians are just one point behind the 4th Real Madrid – their next opponent.
Sevilla had an unconsistent start of the 2020/21 season, but lately the manager Julen Lopetegui found a way to fix his players’ performances. Sevilla are looking better in their last few matches, so this gives them some hope for a solid performance on Saturday.
Something strange is happening at Real Madrid right now. The La Liga champions won just one of their last five matches in all competitions and they lost three of them. After two consecutive defeats against Deportivo Alaves and Shakhtar Donetsk the manager Zinedine Zidane is under a serious pressure right now.
We all thought that Madrid will get back on their feet after the loss against Alaves, but it didn’t really happen like this. On Tuesday Los Blancos had a trip to Ukraine where they suffered a 0-2 loss against Shakthar in the Champions League. This loss is now making Real Madrid fight for their place in the competition they have won 13 times.
That’s our preview for the La Liga derby fixture between Sevilla and Real Madrid. This match comes in a difficult moment for Los Blancos. The clouds are dark over Zinedine Zidane’s head and they could get even darker if his team loses again on Saturday. The champions are in a serious need of a win here, but against Sevilla it won’t be easy.
