Live on Skysports 3: Sun 18.00 & 20.00: Real Madrid are just 1/5 (Totesport) to get 3 points against Sevilla, so where are the good bets?
Real Madrid have bounced back impressively from their mauling at the hands of Barcelona in El Classico, winning all three games, including one in the Champions League, and scoring nine goals in the process.
By contrast, Seville’s midweek Europa League draw against Borussia Dortmund ended a run of five straight defeats in all competitions so it’s perhaps not surprising that Jose Mourinho’s side are such strong favourites at 1/5 with Totesport, to come out on top as the pair prepare to lock horns at the Bernabeu.
Real have the look of a home banker but at that price, they’re one for the high-rollers and more casual punters will be seeking value elsewhere. The handicaps would be one port of call, but Mourinho’s charges are just 8/15 (888Sport) to prevail by at least two clear goals while both Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are odds-on to find the net.
Instead it could be worth gambling on the visitors to score in defeat. Despite their poor run, Seville have been finding the net with enough regularity to suggest they can notch in the capital and William Hill offer 4/5 for both teams to score.
Real’s neighbours Atletico Madrid are licking their wounds after being eliminated from the Europa League in midweek, a competition in which they were defending champions, but they should bounce back from that disappointment at Malaga.
The hosts have lost ten of their 15 matches in La Liga and have the division’s leakiest defence so it’s hard to see them containing the fourth most potent attack. price Atletico at 5/4 to collect a maximum haul in the Estadio La Rosaleda and bolder punters can tackle Partybets’ 5/2 for an away win combined with a goal tally higher than 2.5.
