Into the final minute of normal time at the Alfredo di Stefano. Madrid need at least one goal to be alive in the title race. How much time to be added …. 5/6 minutes at least I’d say.
A draw really suits neither side here. It pretty much kills off any slender title hopes for Sevilla and it would take the initiative away from Real Madrid in their battle to retain their league title.
Hazard and Asensio are two options for Zidane on the bench…. Mariano too could do a job. Marcelo feed Casemiro and the Brazilian blazes wide. Madrid shooting from range now with one sensing a tinge of desperation from the home side.
Discreet 55 minutes from the Argentine who has yet really to catch fire in LaLiga. He’s impressed on only flitting occasions. Sevilla now have a target man available with the Moroccan forward En Nesyri on the pitch.
Possible penalty call for Madrid as the ball strikes Diego Carlos on the arm. A quick VAR check decides that there was no infringement and play continues. It’s something of a coin toss these days with the old handball rule but in this case the decision seems to be the correct one.
Recent meetings in the Spanish capital between both sides make for poor reading for Sevilla fans with Madrid winning out last season 2-1. Previous games ended: 2-0, 5-0 and 4-1.
