I wasn't surprised from Real's defeat in Sevilla's home, however I didn't expect the game to be so easy for Sevilla. Home team had already scored 3 goals before 30', then it was quite impossible for Real to make the overturn. Real Madrid tried in the second half, but the couldn't change the outcome of the game and they were deservedly beaten 3-0. Marcelo and Isco are injured while there is a doubt about defender Odriozola. Carvajal is 100% fit and ready to play.
Atletico seem to be back on track with two wins the previous week, the failed attempts with Eibar and Celta belong to the past. In the midweek round with Huesca, they needed just 30' to score 3 goals, then they slowed down their pace, as there are difficult upcoming games in a row for them. Gimenez seems to have recovered from his injury and he will perform as a central defender next to D.Godin.
Without Zidane and Ronaldo, Real are on a lower level and that's something that they can't change soon. Atletico had a midweek game that was much more easy and an extra day to relax, before this big clash with Real Madrid. Atletico Madrid's win is offered at quite decent odds and will be my call.
