Spanish giants Real Madrid made it to the European Super Cup by beating city-rivals Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final. The game finished 1-1 after normal time, but Los Blancos won the penalty shootout to record their 11th European Cup triumph.
Not much has changed in the Spanish capital this summer, with Alvaro Morata the only signing, following his return from Juventus. With Cristiano Ronaldo expected to be absent Morata is odds of 7/2 with William Hill to open the scoring.
Real Madrid are odds of 10/11 with William Hill to come out on top against their compatriots.
Sevilla have now won the Europa League in the last three consecutive campaigns, having beaten Liverpool 3-1 in last season’s final. Much has changed at the Andalusian club since that triumph, though, as boss Unai Emery has been replaced by Jorge Sampaoli, while striker Kevin Gameiro has left to join Atletico Madrid.
Los Rojiblancos have been busy bringing in reinforcements, though, signing the likes of Franco Vasquez, Joaquin Correa, Wissam Ben Yedder and Luciano Vietto to strengthen their squad.
Sevilla have suffered defeat in four of the last six meetings with the club from the capital and will have a job on their hands putting that right this clash.
Sampaoli’s charges are odds of 3/1 with William Hill to record a victory over the European champions.
Real Madrid are likely to field a strong team for this clash and will be looking to kick their campaign off with a victory. The new players for Sevilla will need to settle and adapt to the new bosses ideas. I cannot look anywhere other than a Real Madrid win at 10/11 with William Hill in this clash.
