Real Madrid Vs Sevilla Nov 28 2021

Madrid Continue to Blitz Opponents With Attacking Quality

We are not even in 2022 yet but Real Madrid are already beginning to look towards next summer. The Spanish giants expect to sign Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer at the end of the season, while they have also been strongly linked with Paul Pogba, Erling Haaland and Antonio Rudiger. After a few relatively quiet years in the transfer market, Madrid look set to make a splash on the recruitment front ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

That does not mean los Blancos are writing off this season, though. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are top of La Liga as we approach December, while they are also safely through to the knockout phase of the Champions League. The arrival of, say, Mbappe, Pogba and Rudiger would add some more star power to the Madrid squad, but the group Ancelotti has at his disposal right now is hardly lacking in quality. We might only be roughly a third of the way into the season, but Madrid look like the team to beat in the Spanish top tier.

That is primarily down to their attacking output. A 4-1 victory over Granada last weekend means Madrid have now scored 32 goals in their 13 matches to date – an average of almost 2.5 per game. That is by far and away the best return in La Liga.

Karim Benzema, who will turn 34 next month, remains the standout striker in the division. Alongside him Vinicius Junior is beginning to make good on his enormous potential and has added a consistent end product to his tricky approach play. Between them Benzema and Vinicius have found the net 18 times this term – only two goals fewer than the entire Barcelona team. Defenses up and down the country are struggling to contain Madrid’s frontline, and Sevilla will have a tough task doing so this weekend.

Sevilla a Tough Nut to Crack and Will Be Out to Make Statement

In fairness, Julen Lopetegui’s side have done a pretty good job of keeping opposition attacks quiet so far this season. Sevilla have conceded just nine goals in their 13 outings; only Athletic Bilbao have a better defensive record. But while Athletic’s solidity has come at the expense of their attacking production (they have notched just 11 goals), Sevilla are second only to Madrid when it comes to putting the ball in the back of the net.

The Rojiblancos were not too far away from the title last term. They ended the campaign in fourth place, nine points adrift of the champions Atletico Madrid. Lopetegui’s team had the second-best defensive record in the league, with Atletico the only side with a more secure backline. But Sevilla did not score enough goals to remain in touch at the top of the table.

As the above statistics demonstrate, there are signs that they have rectified that weakness this time around.

Sevilla have failed to score in only two of their league games so far. They have scored two or more goals on seven occasions, including in a slightly disappointing 2-2 draw with Alaves last time out. And whereas Vinicius and Benzema are the go-to goalscorers for Madrid, no fewer than 11 different Sevilla players have made the net bulge. Lopetegui will hope his team’s improved attack will allow Sevilla to mount a sustained title tilt.

These Teams’ Records Suggest We Could Be In for a Treat

A trip to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is one of the toughest in the La Liga calendar, but Sevilla should view Sunday’s fixture as an opportunity to make a statement of intent. A triumph over Madrid on their own patch would send a message to the rest of the league that Sevilla are a team to be taken seriously. Indeed, for all that they are currently just two points adrift of top spot, the Rojiblancos have not yet played Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid or Barcelona.

Sevilla are good enough to win at the Bernabeu, although that remains a tall order. Madrid have yet to lose a home game in La Liga this season. Only Sevilla have scored more goals per home game than los Blancos, who are averaging 2.6 per league encounter.

It should be pointed out that Madrid have drawn 0-0 with both Villarreal and Osasuna at the Bernabeu. Those teams sat deep and frustrated Ancelotti’s side, who were unable to break them down.

Sevilla will show more attacking endeavor on Sunday, as they seek a major win against a potential fellow title challenger. But that in turn could leave Lopetegui’s side vulnerable. The best way to go here is a Madrid win and both teams to score.
