Real Madrid v Sevilla Odds : Mourinho sets sights on La Liga title as punters fear Ronaldo backlash
April 28, 2012 · 0 Comments
Real Madrid will be looking to bounce back from Champions League disappointment this weekend when they host Sevilla in La Liga, as punters fancy Ronaldo to once again find the net first at odds of 9/4 with Bet365.
Jose Mourinho’s men crashed out on penalties in the semi-final to Bayern Munich and now their focus turns back to winning the title.
Going into this weekend, Madrid are seven points clear of Barcelona with four games to go and there is no doubt that they are overwhelming favourites to secure 1st position.
Their quest was helped massively by the 2-1 win at Barcelona last time out in the league, a match which many believe has handed Mourinho and his team the title.
It would certainly be a massive turnaround if Madrid threw it away from here and with two more wins required to guarantee Barcelona can’t catch them, they will be focused on three points this weekend.

As for Sevilla, they will be wary of a wounded Madrid side looking to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of failing to make the Champions League final.
In terms of their own motivations for the remainder of the season, Sevilla are 9th in the table at the moment, but are still within touching distance of a Europa League qualification place.
Athletic Bilbao currently occupy 6th position – the final Europa League spot – and Sevilla are two points behind them at the moment. Therefore, a positive result this weekend would be a massive boost for the away side.
With regards to their form going into this tough fixture, Sevilla have been rather inconsistent of late with only one win in their last four league games. They did secure two 3-0 away victories last month though, so they are capable on the road.
Madrid are getting closer and close to the league title though and they are expected to win this one. It gets underway at 11am on Sunday morning.
