FC Sevilla vs. Real Madrid / La Liga – The second match that was not played as scheduled in the 34th round of La Liga is also a derby, but in this duel the points are much more needed to the host Sevilla and their fight for Europa League, than to the guest Real, which has already managed to win placement in the Champions League and all thoughts their thoughts are aimed to finals of that competition. Sevilla has in the last round, after a long series without triumph, finally managed to win and they are again in a good position to win placement in Europe, while Real has played a draw at Nou Camp in El Clasico and that is always a good achievement, although they can also regret that they have not won. In the first part of the season, Real has mastered Sevilla at Bernabeu with 5-0. Begins: 09.05.2018. – 21:30 CET
Seville has finally interrupted a series of poor results and it can be said that shock therapy with the new coach came to fruition. It is not so common for a coach to be replaced three rounds before the end, but there was simply no choice because the Andalusians were threatened to stay without entering on European stage for a long time, so Montella was replaced by Joaquin Caparros who debuted with a victory.
It was not so easy against Real Sociedad, since their opponent was also involved in the fight for Europa League and they were in a solid form, and Sevilla was under great pressure after a debacle in the Cup finals and a series of seven matches without triumph. Caparros made some changes and Roque played in defensive midfield, while Banega was more offensive and S.Ramirez was at the top of the attack. They celebrated with 1-0, so there might not be any changes now.
Probable lineups FC Sevilla: Soria – Layun, Mercado, Lenglet, Escudero – N'Zonzi, Roque – Sarabia, Banega, Nolito – S.Ramirez
Real has not played at full strength in the championship for a long time, but on Sunday, they performed with their strongest lineup, because El Clasico always brings that special charge and they do not want to lose that game even when the points do not have a special value. They did not want Barcelona to win them for the second time this season, and they wanted a bit to spoil the Catalans’ celebration for winning the title of the champions. The end result was 2-2 in a game in which they lost twice, but they have something to regret for, because they missed the fact that they had more players on the field throughout the entire second half.
They are a little bit damaged by some referees’ decisions, and when all is summed up, a draw is quite acceptable. Their motive is to win the second place, which is currently occupied by their rival Atletico, but all the thoughts are actually turned towards Kiev and the finals of the Champions League. This match is the crown of the season and can bring salvation, since both domestic trophies went to Barcelona. Therefore, coach Zidane will have to rest some players in this duel, first of all Ronaldo who has a slight injury, while Asensio, Kovacic, Bale and Vazquez could be on the field.
Probable lineups Real Madrid: Navas – Nacho, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo – Kovačić, T.Kroos, Modric, Vazquez – Bale, Benzema
FC Sevilla vs. Real Madrid PICK
The match is much more important for Sevilla, and the host will play at full strength, especially because it is always a great pleasure to defeat Real. Real has spent a lot of energy against Barcelona and will now rest some players for the Champions League finals, so we do not believe they can get to a triumph.
