Real Madrid need to beat Sevilla without Ronaldo to kick off La Liga

Posted on July 15, 2016 by admin

Despite the fact that Real Madrid fans have had to suffer in recent years as the traditional title of the best team in Spain has been usurped by the Catalan rivals FC Barcelona, especially in the league. Eight of the last 12 La Liga titles have gone to our great rivals and one has been taken by our city rivals Atletico Madrid and that is simply not good enough.

At least Real Madrid has recently got back into the swing of winning things on the European stage, adding an amazing 11th European cup to the long sought after decima that was won a couple of seasons ago. That is fantastic, of course, but what the Madrid fans really want to see is the club taking back it’s dominance of the domestic stage.

To do that we must start well as last season we made it too easy for Barca in the early stages and were always playing catch up. One way to get off to a good start in the league would be to win the UEFA Super Cup which will be played on August 9th.

The fact that our opponents Sevilla are also La Liga rivals should help to breed confidence in the Madrid squad, as long as we win of course. The last time we played Sevilla was back in March and it was a thumping 4-0 win, which Sporticos.com produced a very good infographic report on and which Zinedine Zidane will be hoping is a blueprint for the Super Cup clash to come next month.

The good news is that only one of the goals in that match came from Cristiano Ronaldo because the chances are that he will not be back in time to play after his Euro 2016 glory with Portugal. The other three goals were scored by Benzema, Bale and Jese. From the infographic it is clear that we completely dominated that game and so confidence should be high going into the game.

And as long as the result goes our way again it could prove to be the perfect way to begin the new La Liga campaign. Will this be our year? I think so.
