This Saturday, Sevilla will face Real Madrid at 14 (Brasilia time), at home, for the opening of the penultimate round of the Spanish league. The home side are looking to qualify for the Conference League and the visitors are looking to stay in second place. The match will be broadcast on the channel ESPN and the STAR+ streaming service.
Over the course of the season, Real Madrid failed to catch up with rivals Barcelona, who ended up taking the national title, but are still playing to hold on to second place. With 74 points, Carlo Ancelotti’s team is looking for victory in order not to lose position against Atlético de Madrid, with one point less.
The blue coach confirmed that he won’t be able to count on the Brazilian forward Vinícius Júnior, who suffers from knee pain. The player has not yet returned to the grass after the match against Valencia, in which he was subjected to racist attacks.
Sevilla, on the other hand, are in tenth place, with 49 points, but are still in the fight for a place in the Conference League. Just one point behind Osasuna, seventh in the standings, the team led by José Luis Mendilibar come from two consecutive draws to try the three points at home.
