At the top of the table, La Liga leaders Real Madrid travel to face Sevilla as the league’s top scorers but meet the most resolute defense in La Liga on the 18th of April, 2022. The match will kick off by 00:30 IST, and Julen Lopetegui’s side will be looking to avoid yet another draw.

Real Madrid returned victorious after a scare against Chelsea but will now turn their eyes upon La Liga, where they hope to wrap up the title as quickly as possible. Draw results have plagued Sevilla since the year’s turn, which explains why they trail the league leaders by 12 points. Lopetegui’s charges still have to seal Champions League qualification, making this faceoff a more interesting affair.

Teams Status

Here is the latest on form, injuries, and absences from Sevilla and Real Madrid:

Sevilla Form and Team News

The league’s best defense deserves more than third place, yet Sevilla find themselves level on points with Barcelona having played a game more and 12 points behind Real Madrid, who sit atop the league table. Seven draws in 2022 have seen them slide further away from Real, and they are only three points ahead of Atlético Madrid, who are placed fourth.

With only 44 goals scored this season, they have scored the second-fewest goals of the teams that currently occupy the European qualification spots, second to Real Sociedad (32). They returned to winning ways last time out after losing to Barcelona on the back of three straight draws. Rafa Mir remains their top scorer with 9 goals.

Karim Rekik, Fernando Reges, and Suso remain sidelined with injuries and may not participate in Madrid’s visit.

Real Madrid Form and Team News

Real overcame a scare to progress to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, although they lost by 3 goals to 2 to a visiting Chelsea side. Four wins and one loss in their last five league games have taken them 12 points ahead of the chasing pack in La Liga, and they can only hope to grab all available points to seal their title victory as soon as possible.

22 wins, 6 draws, and 3 losses in 31 matches this season is an excellent record, and with 3 wins and 1 draw in their last four away matches, Real Madrid are looking good for this fixture. Ancelotti’s side also boasts a record of scoring over two goals in four of their last five matches, winning four and losing one in that run.

Ferland Mendy, Jesus Vallejo, Marcelo, Isco, and Eden Hazard are doubts to make the trip to Sevilla as they have been struggling with injuries and fitness issues.

The odds for a possible draw outcome are at 3.35, 3.44, and 3.35, respectively, while a win for the home side is placed at 2.88, 3, and 2.90 odds, respectively.

Tipster’s Angle

The league’s meanest defense meets the most prolific goalscorers, and a clear favorite remains to be seen. Sevilla have already recorded 7 draws in 2022, and another draw may not be off the cards, especially as they have scored the second least goals of all teams in the European qualification spots.

Ancelotti’s men have the advantage in the head-to-head record, and they have not lost to Sevilla since 2018. We expect a lively football game, and here are our thoughts on the possible outcomes:

Tip: Real Madrid to Win or Draw @ 1.41

Real Madrid won the reverse fixture earlier in the season and have not lost to Sevilla since 2018, winning five and drawing one in that period. Ancelotti’s men will be riding on a good away record, three wins and one draw in four matches, and in high spirits after qualifying for the semifinals of the Champions League. Real to win or draw is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.41 odds.

Tip: Draw in Either Half @ 1.47

Sevilla are a difficult team to break down, and Real Madrid have also been solid in defense in their away fixtures. Both teams may be reluctant to force a result in the opening stages, making a draw in either half a huge possibility. Draw in either half is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.47 odds.


Sevilla have conceded only 22 goals all season, and Real Madrid have scored 63 of their own. These numbers represent the best at both ends of the pitch (in defense and attack), and with both teams having different goals (Champions League qualification for Sevilla, the title for Madrid), we can expect a highly contested match.
