Under the tutelage of new manager Jorge Sampaoli, Sevilla have resurged brilliantly this season and are actually placed above giants FC Barcelona in the league table.

Real Madrid, on another hand, are yet to be defeated this season and are enjoying a comfortable lead at the top of the table.

The two teams face each other twice in three days. On Thursday, they lock horns in the Copa deReyey round of 16 and then face again on Sunday in the La Liga encounter.

In other important matches, FC Barcelona take on Las Palmas in a must win game for the Catalan giants if they to remain in the title hunt.

Any other result other than a win would virtually eliminate them from the title race.
