Sevilla v Real Madrid: La Liga Match Preview, Where to watch and more
Sevilla return to LaLiga action coming off a stellar Europa League win, while Real Madrid come back with a defeat weighing them down. Regardless, good teams are often defined by their response to adversity. Despite all else, beneath the poor performances, a good team is waiting to be unearthed at Real Madrid.
Los Blancos will be hoping to put their ghosts from midweek to rest with a win at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, but table-toppers Sevilla will have other ideas, as former Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui has built a side capable of threatening Zidane's fragile defense.
Unless the 3-0 loss to PSG has evoked some sort of epiphany at the Bernabeu, this could be a very difficult and damaging tie for Real Madrid.

Lopetegui gave the young left-back his break at Real Madrid, and he's since taken him to Sevilla. Reguilon has been a key part of this Sevilla side that currently leads the LaLiga.
The full-back has been solid in defense but also makes himself available in advanced positions. Real are likely to deploy Hazard and Bale on the wings, which will keep both their full-backs busy. Someone like Reguilon could take benefit from the space provided down the flanks.
This Real Madrid team may have a lot of midfield issues, but they've dealt with those in the past by being able to score plenty of goals. That missing threat in attack has been the most concerning thing about this Real Madrid team.
Karim Benzema has repeatedly shown that he's capable of scoring those goals if he's provided with the supply. All Real need to do is figure out how to feed the French striker more regularly, although, that's easier said than done.
