Ten points is still too far away to be pursued by Real Madrid at the moment, but if only behind the goal difference, of course Los Blancos can still catch up with that. Yes, at this time Santiago Solari’s landing squad only lagged behind on goal difference from Sevilla which was ranked 3rd in the standings.
Interestingly, Real Madrid had the opportunity to take over the position when dealing with a team made by Pablo Machin. Their match itself will take place on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid.
Real Madrid, who will play as the hosts in the match, are in fact ranked 4th in the Spanish La Liga standings. Los Blancos did have a chance to find a series of disappointing results at the start of the season, but their performance has improved recently, and returned to a positive trend. In the 4th place, the defending champions of the European champions left behind on goal difference from Sevilla who are sitting at the 3rd position, therefore the game against Pablo Machin’s landing team could later be an opportunity for Real Madrid to take over the top three.
In their last five matches in all competitions, host Real Madrid won 3 wins and only lost once. While on Sevilla side, they have never lost in their last five parties and won twice. Real Madrid as the more favored to win later.
