Real Madrid are a European giant in crisis. But they get to improve on their poor form in La Liga with a game at Santiago Bernabeu against rivals Sevilla on Mar. 20 at 3.30 p.m. EST. You’d be a fool to miss it, so click to watch the stream!
What is going on at Real Madrid? Inner turmoil, rumored fighting between management and players, it’s been a very unhappy time for Los Blancos. But against Sevilla they will hope to improve on their disappointing season in La Liga with a win. But it won’t be easy, and their opponents will be going out for the win themselves as they chase a Champions League place. Click down for the live stream!
Whether Cristiano Ronaldo has been distracted by Kendall Jenner, or his new self-lacing Back to the Future-style sneakers, he hasn’t been nearly as effective as he was at the beginning of the season. That said, it’s still Cristiano and he can do things with a football only mere mortals can dream of.
And Cristiano has a stellar supporting cast who are more than capable of hurting Sevilla where it hurts in the goal department. With Karim Benzema, who seems to have shaken off his split with Rihanna, upfront they will have the physical presence to cause problems.
Add to that Colombian hottie James Rodriguez, who has been linked with a move away from Madrid in a rumored swap with Chelsea‘s Eden Hazard, and Real should have enough in their locker to blow Sevilla away.
But Sevilla are a good outfit. 5 points behind Villarreal, they will want to win this one to keep up with the team just in front of them to guarantee that all-important Champions League place, which is worth a lot of money for teams all around Europe.
Having lost Carlos Bacca last year to A.C. Milan, it was expected that Sevilla might struggle for goals this season. But in Kevin Gameiro they seem to have had a ready-made replacement and he’s struck 16 goals for Los Rojiblancos, so he will have to be watched by Real’s defenders.
The way the fans have turned against Real in recent weeks, anything could happen in this one. One thing that will be guaranteed is lots of goals! The first game between these two sides this season ended 3-2, so expect more of the same.
HollywoodLifers, who do you think will win this one? Real or Sevilla?
