Los Blancos are on a high after their midweek European success and we are backing them for another win on Sunday evening at the Bernabeu in La Liga
The celebrations for Real Madrid were short lived on Wednesday night after their momentous triumph in the Champions League. Zinedine Zidane allowed his players to rejoice on the pitch of the Vicente Calderon with the traveling fans after reaching the final of the tournament for the second successive year, but the next day it was back to work.
Real Madrid now have three games in seven days which will decide whether or not they win the La Liga title, the first of which is against Sevilla on Sunday evening. The Andalusians were the side that ended Madrid's record breaking 40 match unbeaten run earlier this season, although Jorge Sampaoli's side have since tailed off.
Nevertheless, they should provide the toughest test remaining for Madrid this term and an away win at the Bernabeu is offered at 14/1 (15.00) . Bet365, who are live streaming the game for UK-based customers, price a win for Madrid at 4/25 (1.16) with the draw offered at 7/1 (8.00) .
Indeed, Madrid could afford to draw on Sunday and be crowned champions with wins in their final two games of the season although they would be hoping to avoid such a result.
However, this Madrid side generally has produced when it has really mattered this season, and the hosts will fancy their chances against a Sevilla side that seems to be running out of steam. The price for a home win does not exactly appeal as much as for a Real Madrid victory and both teams to score is available at a more temping 9/10 (1.90) .
Both teams have scored in nine of their last 12 meetings, while Madrid have won but conceded in eight of their home league games this term.
Sevilla are a side with a decent scoring record but have not won in five away games, and this looks like a strong selection for the final game at the Bernabeu this season.
