Expect plenty of goals today with Cristiano striking at least once as Sevilla heads to the Bernabeu to face a Real Madrid squad looking to rebound from a loss against Barcelona.
After losing 2-1 in the first Clasico of the season, Real Madrid wil look to rebound against a Sevilla side that is winless on the road in five league matches this year.
Real is the obvious favourite, with William Hill pegging the La Liga giant at a paltry 1.22 for the outright, but a more formidable 2.37 for the Madrid win combined with both teams to score.
The draw is listed at a very high 6.00, while a Sevilla win is offered at 13.00. Sevilla has three draws from five away matches, including its last two, but those were against clubs at a lesser level than Real.
The 10 matches involving Sevilla so far have produced 34 goals, only Barcelona matches have generated more. The over 2.5 has cracked in eight of those games, and Sevilla has conceded the third most goals in La Liga. Additionally, with the return of Karim Benzema to Real's lineup to join Ronaldo, there is certainly plenty of potential for goals today. The over 3.5 is only at 1.80, but the over 2.5 combined with both teams to score brings in $21 off a $10 wager.
A Benzema strike at any given time is at 1.83, while Ronaldo to score a pair is at 2.50. After the loss to Barcelona on the weekend, and having felt insulted from FIFA president Sepp Blatter's light-hearted comments yesterday, Ronaldo usually responds well to criticism and a double looks mighty promising tonight.
