There’s no time to rest for Real Madrid who face another stern test at the Santiago Bernabéu this evening. The league leaders, who remain unbeaten in all competitions after 15 games (13 wins and 2 draws), host Sevilla for matchday 11 of the league campaign (9 pm CET).
The madridistas will be vying to secure a fourth win on the bounce in LaLiga to cement their place at the top of the table. The clash against Sevilla will be the side’s seventh outing out of nine fixtures in an intense month of October, before they head to Leipzig in the Champions League and host Girona next Sunday.

“We're up against a side who are doing ok and looking to get out of a tricky period”, said Ancelotti in the press conference ahead of the clash. The Italian coach welcomes back Courtois, who recently collected the Yashin award for the best goalkeeper. The Madrid squad also includes Benzema, who was on target at the Martínez Valero after clinching the Ballon d’Or, along with Valverde, who is also in a rich vein of form.
Real Madrid’s opponents currently sit mid-table in the standings. Sampaoli’s side are unbeaten in their last three LaLiga outings. Last time out, they secured victory against Mallorca. Óliver Torres is the team’s top goal scorer in the competition with three goals.
