ANDl Seville you already have all five senses in the duel that will measure the Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu. A duel for the head of The league, against one of the fittest teams in Spain and Europe. Julen lopetegui He knows that it will not be an easy company and he is already cooking a plan that in his first two visits it was not far from going well. He was defeated in the first, with that controversial goal annulled to De Jong due to previous blocking, while the last year (in Valdebebas) scratched a tie in a match that I had cattle until the extension. In both games he tried to surprise his opponent by moving his pieces and stealing the ball from a team with a higher punch. What will you do on Sunday?
At the moment, the Basque coach look more at the infirmary than at your papers. He knows that in attack he has little to choose from and that is precisely where he will have to intervene with greater success. In the back he has the doubt of Diego Carlos, whom he hopes to recover with the passing of the hours. In the middle they have earned their place so much Jordan as Rakitic, with the indisputable Fernando directing defensive operations two steps behind. With Ocampos as the only pure winger, starting again from the right-handed side, it remains to be seen what the coach will do with the left wing and the tip of the attack.
The logical thing is that I return to the top Rafa mir. Real Madrid plays with the defense very advanced, to reduce spaces inside, and the forward power Murcia can be an important weapon. Even so, and remembering the Julen’s plan the previous year, it should not be ruled out that he could even use a false ‘9’. Papu Gomez served as a center forward, escorted by Suso and Ocampos. In the European game on Tuesday, Papu started from the left wing, a position where they can also move Munir (who was a forward on Tuesday), an offensive midfielder like Oliver Torres and even the option used against Alavés as Idrissi.
The Moroccan, obviously, has fewer options to jump from the start because it is a top-level match, since he has barely played in this course and he shows a lack of rhythm. Even so, it should not be ruled out, since Lopetegui bets on certain surprises in risk scenarios. You don’t have much to choose from, but you can turn your approach around and tickle your dog. Real Madrid. A match that will be like a thermometer for the Sevilla fans before starting a key month of December in every sense. Three fronts that begin to compress a calendar that continues to claim victims in a Seville where injuries are forcing him to pull what he has.
