With their lead at the top of the table still intact, Real Madrid take a trip to Seville to face Sevilla on Saturday.
Los Blancos command a two-point lead at the top of the La Liga table after nine games played, winning eight games and suffering one defeat.
Madrid’s only loss of the season came against City rivals Atletico away from home as they suffered a 2-0 defeat.
However, Carlo Ancelotti’s boys beating Girona gave them the opportunity to go top of the league as Barcelona’s inconsistencies in the league continued.
Madrid saw three league wins on the bounce before the international break and will be hoping that run continues on Saturday against Sevilla.
Sevilla sacked their manager just before the international break following the 2-2 draw against Rayo Vallecano at home.
Jose Luis Mendilibar was shown the exit days after the game with the club going on to appoint Diego Alonso as his replacement.
Alonso’s first game will be against Madrid and it would be interesting to see how he survives a side that looks to be on the rise again since losing to Atletico.
Madrid picked up two wins in both games against Sevilla last season scoring 3-1 and 2-1 respectively.
Sevilla are currently 14th on the table after just two wins in their opening nine games of the campaign,
