Real Madrid look to stay on top with win against Sevilla - get La Liga fantasy tips and predictions
Real Madrid (RM) will host Sevilla (SEV) in Matchweek 15 of the La Liga 2021-22 season at the Santiago Bernabeu on Monday, November 29. The game will kick off at 01:30 AM IST.
RM vs SEV Dream11 Prediction
Real Madrid have won their last three league matches to maintain their position at the top of the La Liga standings. A win against Sevilla will see Los Blancos still remain one point clear of second-placed Real Sociedad with a game in hand.
Former Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui arrives with his side two points adrift of top spot and will be wary of the form Real currently are in.
The Real Madrid vs Sevilla head-to-head record in the last five matches is in favour of Carlo Ancelotti’s men, who have won four of the last five meetings between the two sides. The Italian manager will be eager to add another victory to the book.
RM vs SEV Dream11 team tips for La Liga 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Karim Benzema leads the La Liga scoring charts with 10 goals, which is why the Frenchman is undoubtedly the top pick as a forward. Benzema is closing on the 300-goal mark for Los Blancos and will hope to bridge the gap with a match-winning outing against Sevilla - against whom he has seven goals and nine assists to his name.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Erik Lamela has tallied four goals and an assist in La Liga, since his arrival from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window. With 304 fantasy points so far this season, the Argentine winger will be key to Sevilla's attack.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
It goes without saying that David Alaba is a key defender to include in fantasy football teams. The Austrian defender - who signed as a free agent from Bayern Munich - has kept his place ahead of the seasoned Marcelo at the left-back slot for Real by keeping three clean sheets in the league. He has also contributed a goal and three assists, which shows his attributes as an attack-minded defender.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Thibaut Courtois is the first-choice pick. The Real Madrid custodian may have kept just three clean sheets in the league this term but the former Chelsea star has managed 36 saves in the competition, making him a smart pick between the sticks.
RM vs SEV probable playing XI
RM playing XI (probable): Thibaut Courtois (goalkeeper); Dani Carvajal, Diego Militao, Nacho, Ferland Mendy; Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Luka Modric; Rodrygo, Karim Benzema (captain), Vinicius Jr.
SEV playing XI (probable): Bono (goalkeeper); Gonzalo Montiel, Jules Kounde, Diego Carlos, Marcos Acuna; Ivan Rakitic (captain), Fernando Reges, Joan Jordan; Erik Lamela, Rafa Mir, Lucas Ocampos
