Los Blancos of Real Madrid have three targets ahead of their Spanish La Liga fixture against Sevilla. They want to build momentum, avoid injuries and possibly get three points.

Next week, they will host Manchester United on home soil so Saturday’s match against Sevilla appears as a perfect warm-up for the Spanish giants. Jose Mourinho needs to seduce Real Madrid’s home supporters as their influence will be vital against the Red Devils come next Wednesday.

Real Madrid are under maximum pressure to win against Deportivo La Coruna after Barcelona staged a miraculous comeback against Sevilla on Saturday.
The Catalans made sure of retaining the top spot in La Liga thanks to goals from Cesc Fabregas and David Villa. Hosts Sevilla had taken a stunning 2-0 lead through Piotr Trochowski’s left-footed shot in the first period and Negredo’s 48th minute strike.
However, Barcelona were determined to turn the tables around. Cesc Fabregas reduced his side's deficit after 53 minutes. Inside the 71st minute of the match, G. Medel was sent off for allegedly head-butting Fabregas although replays suggested the latter over-reacted.
This numerical disadvantage apparently affected Sevilla. Fabregas again was at the centre of the action when he beat the offside trap to score a vital equalizer in the 89th minute.
Spice up your weekend with the best from La Liga, the Serie A, the French Ligue 1 and England’s Championship on beIN Sport 1.
The first match on beIN Sport 1 this Saturday kicks off at 10:00am EST. It is Championship action with Cardiff City vs Leeds United.
At 12:00pm EST, Palermo vs Cagliari opens the channel’s weekend coverage of Italian Serie A football. Other Serie A matches to come your way live on beIN Sport 1 are Roma vs Bologna and Torino vs Internazionale on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Spanish La Liga coverage begins on beIN Sport 1 with Getafe vs Barcelona live at 14:00 EST this Saturday. The Catalans will be looking to increase the pressure on champions Real Madrid in this away fixture.
Real Madrid play Sevilla in one of Saturday’s huge fixtures. Los Blancos will be hoping to record yet another win at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Former Real Madrid boy Jose Antonio Reyes will not play. The Spaniard is on the sideline with a shoulder injury. Meanwhile, Diego Perotti is in line to return to Sevilla’s starting line-up. Another piece of good news for Sevilla is that goalkeeper Diego Lopez is free to start in post after serving suspension.
Jose Mourinho has no injury concern to deal with. However, the Portuguese coach will have to build his defense without countryman Fabio Coentrao. The latter received a ban for allegedly insulting the referee during Real Madrid's defeat to Getafe.
Sevilla’s defence will be put to the test when they face giants Barcelona, empowered by the efficient pair formed by Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas upfront.
There is still a large gap at the top of La Liga table between leaders Real Madrid and second place Barcelona. 10 points are currently what separate them, but all is not over yet.
“From now on there is no turning the page after any setbacks,” Guardiola was quoted saying by the official FC Barcelona website on Friday.
Surely, this is the truth, and if the Catalans are to do things right, then they unquestionably need to make use of each and every asset they possess.
Whether in defence, in midfield or in front, Los Cules have powerful players with great techniques that enable them to throw any opposition into confusion.
Valencia and Sevilla will clash at the Mestalla Stadium on Sunday evening in a game that seems evenly matched.
Fans will be hoping for a great game despite the fact that both teams have to deal with a growing list of unfit players. Bruno, Barragan and Jordi Alba are all doubtful for Valencia. Sergio Canales, Miguel, Paco Alcacer, Maduro and Ever Banega are definitely out.
Meanwhile, Sevilla will be without Diego Perotti but the coach will be hoping to have Frederic Kanoute, Luna and Reyes fit in time for the encounter. Should Kanoute and Reyes miss the trip, new manager Michel may opt for a defensive approach against Valencia.
Can FC Barcelona afford to drop any more points with a Real Madrid side that might have found their groove? Not if they want to defend their Liga title.
A 100% record in La Liga was probably not FC Barcelona’s aim at the start of the season; but in view of Real Madrid’s solidification, they are advised to go for perfection.
Yes, Barcelona have been trying to give their fans the very best. Surely, never did they allow themselves to get carried away by complaisance; but in contrast, their results in La Liga have not always been positive.
Failing to accomplish missions or dropping points are things that can happen from time to time. Yet, mistakes seem to get massive exposure when they come at an unexpected moment.
Real Madrid got back to their best on Saturday night, putting their defeat in El Clasico behind. 10-man Los Blancos forced 10-man Sevilla to a 6-2 defeat.
Following his impotent display against Barcelona at the Bernabeu, Cristiano Ronaldo became the center of attraction ahead of the Sevilla encounter. But the Portuguese number 7 responded to his critics with an energetic performance throughout.
Ronaldo broke the deadlock inside the 10th minute after combining well with assist maker Di Maria. Varas was left with absolutely no chance. A couple of minutes later, Manu went extremely close to leveling the score for Sevilla.
Casillas, however, had the last word. The Spaniard’s acrobatic save denied the hosts from getting a goal. Javi Varas suffered punishment for a second time in the game as Callejon continued his great form by netting a 37th minute strike.
The Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan will be used by two wounded clubs – Sevilla and Real Madrid – on Saturday night.
Real Madrid’s many records related to their long winning streak collapsed all at once under the supremacy of Barcelona last weekend. It’s back to zero for Los Blancos but the situation is not critical. The fight to regain the top spot in La Liga is well in their hands, since newly-appointed league leaders Barca have played one game more.
“There is no inferiority. They have the same amount of points as us, and on Saturday, they can have one or three points fewer,” Mourinho reminded in an encounter with the press last weekend.
Jose Mourinho might not ask for a flurry of goals from his team. Even a 1-0 win would suffice Los Blancos; their sole intention right now is to prove to the world that what happened in El Clasico stays in the past.
Barcelona faced Sevilla with hopes of snatching another 3 points in La Liga. Unfortunately, they could only manage a bitter 0-0 draw.
The hosts began with a 4-3-3 formation with Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi and David Villa forming the front zone. Sevilla relied on a 4-2-3-1 structure, placing Manu Del Moral as the main man in charge of the goals.
Iniesta came close twice in the first 10 minutes, forcing goalkeeper Varas to react rapidly. However, it was Abidal’s mistake in his own half on 12 minutes that gave Navas a great chance on goal. But with Valdes alert, the score line had to stay the same.
Sevilla kept fighting with courage as they refused to be intimidated by the home crowd. Indeed, they managed to stay in control for most of the first half.
FC Barcelona have two main options ahead of their game against Sevilla: move 5 points ahead of the Sevillistas in La Liga table, or drop a point behind them.
As at now, Barca still share their top position with the brave Levante. They are then followed by arch-rivals Real Madrid - who are just behind with 16 points - and then followed by fourth place Sevilla, who have 15.
Both the Catalans and Sevilla are unbeaten this season. Marcelino García Toral’s boys have drawn thrice in La Liga so far, while Pep Guardiola’s club have only failed to grab wins twice.
Seeing how close they are in the race for the league title at present, it will be important for each side to try to get in control of the match in the early minutes. On several occasions under the Guardiola era, Barcelona’s midfielders have opted to prove their power by keeping the ball in their zone for very long.
Rampant Real Madrid are gaining more confidence lately but does it mean that Barcelona are losing some of their shining light?
“What Madrid can do, Barca can do better,” pro-Catalans believe. “Barca play very well and win titles,” Cruyff said this week “but Real Madrid play well and crash in El Clasico” added football fans.
On Tuesday, Los Blancos made things so easy against French giants Olympique Lyon to maintain their perfect record in the UEFA Champions League. At the delight of the home crowd, Real Madrid scored 4 goals and kept a clean sheet to steal the show on the night.
Considering the size and inexperience of Viktoria Plzen, Los Blancos’ rivals Barcelona were expected to do "better" by banging a flurry of goals in the net of Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday night. The Catalans did not respond to this expectation. Still, they ran away with 3 massive points to keep pace with Group H leaders AC Milan.
Valencia currently occupies the top spot in La Liga under Real Betis takes to the pitch. Many expected them to have problems after the departure of Juan Mata.
Valencia is in plenty of debt. The dream of a new stadium with 75,000 seats was put to a hold by the financial crisis. The initial idea was to sell the Mestalla and to pay for the new stadium with that money. Due to the crisis, nobody was willing to purchase the Mestalla. Valencia then became a selling club. They had to sell to stay afloat.
Consequently, David Villa and David Silva went out the door. Then went Juan Mata. Luckily for the club, they have a smart manager in Unai Emery. Emery has been in charge of the team since 2008. He has made all the right moves to keep the club together and make sure they finish consistently in the Champions League spots.
The Spanish Professional Football League (LFP) is ready to postpone matchday 30 of La Liga subsequent to a TV dispute with the government, but will the strike really go on after all the muddle?
La Liga Strike Threat: The Dispute With The Government
Complications are mounting, and debts are rising... The LFP finds itself unable to stick to a 1997 law—called the “Law of Football”—which obliges one match to be freely broadcasted live on terrestrial TV every week, as football is considered ‘of general interest’ to the public. The association is asking the government to let the game—usually shown on Saturday nights—to be budged to pay-per-view or satellite channels, as it believes that the system in England, Germany, Italy and France should be followed.
It is understood that clubs in Spain lose up to £200m per season on account of the current law in place; yet, this is a huge sum that could be of great help financially to the victims. A mighty change is thus requested by the LFP, but there are signs of reluctance from the government—who is not quite ready to chime in with the proposal received.
Ahead of Sevilla vs Barcelona, Real Madrid have joined Los Nervionense in the hope of celebrating a downfall of the Catalans. Live Soccer TV demands if it’s really worth doing so...
Under Pep Guardiola, Barcelona are arguably the best in the art of bouncing back. At the least slip, their strength comes under interrogations from football analyst.
That’s what happened when their shocking defeat at home to Hercules and their unconvincing draw against Mallorca saw them lack in second position behind Real Madrid in La Liga. But when it mattered the most, the Catalans revealed their true faces by trouncing Los Blancos in El Clasico.
Honestly, could there have been a better way for Barcelona to insist that they remain the toughest team to beat in Spain? Still, La Liga has literally not been won yet.
Alvaro Negredo has assured fans that Sevilla will showcase a top performance against Porto tonight. The striker hopes that home advantage will play the trick against the Dragons.
Alvaro Negredo spoke to the press in the build up to Thursday night’s huge Europa League match against Porto. The striker is aware of Sevilla’s unconvincing form in La Liga, but his confidence hasn’t been affected. Explaining matters, Negredo declared:
“These types of games are where you see the best of Sevilla. We are only thinking about winning and getting a good result for the return leg, which will be more difficult.
“We know that the tie doesn't finish after 90 minutes. We know that we have another game after that and that we have to be calm, cool and collected. The best news would be to keep a clean sheet at home and then trust in the people up front.
Porto will resume their UEFA Europa League campaign in style on Thursday as they’ll play against Los Nervionense in Sevilla. This city represents a lot to the Portuguese giants.
Back in 2003, Porto were led by the influential Jose Mourinho all the way to the final of the UEFA Cup – a competition which has been renamed as the Europa League. The Dragons had to face Celtic in a mouth-watering cup final match officiated by the controversial Michel Lubos.
A brace from Larsson forced Porto into extra-time, but Derlei’s winner five minutes from the end of proceedings stole the trophy for the Portuguese side. This dramatic encounter happened in Sevilla and Porto will return there for the first time since that historic moment.
“It will be very emotional for Porto to return to Sevilla,” Coach Andre Villas-Boas affirmed according to Reuters.
