Goals, Goals, Goals
When Cristiano Ronaldo left, everybody thought Real Madrid were doomed. The Portuguese has been missed, but los Blancos are more than fine thanks to Carlo Ancelotti, Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior.
They currently sit in first place with 30 points thanks to a 9-3-1 record, 32 goals for, and 14 against. No other team has scored more goals than them. In fact, the second top scoring team has scored eight goals less. Los Blancos have scored in 85 percent of their matches.
Benzema not only leads the team with 10 goals but also the league. He’s followed by Vinicius, who has scored eight. The Frenchman also leads the league in assists with seven. Los Blancos expect the striker can remain focused despite the verdict in Mathieu Valbuena’s sex tape case.
Real Madrid have been a more reliable soccer pick when playing at home. They remain unbeaten with a 3-2-0 record, 2-3 against the spread and 3-2 over/under.

Most recently, they drew 2-2 to Deportivo Alaves, but midweek they beat Wolfsburg 2-0 in the UEFA Champions League. We’re talking about a well-balanced, disciplined team. Head coach Julen Lopetegui has done a great job establishing a winning mentality. Talking about Lopetegui, he used to coach Real Madrid, meaning he knows them very well.
Sevilla lost striker Luuk de Jong to Barcelona, but Erik Lamela, Rafa Mir, and Youssef En-Nesyri are having a great season.
