Real Madrid and Sevilla's first ever encounter took place way back in 1958 during a European Cup game that Los Blancos won 8-0 at home.
Since then, the two sides have faced off a total of 61 times with Real winning a vast majority of 40 matches, compared to the Sevillians' 16 victories.
The hosts won this season's reverse fixture at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in December with a score of 1-0 thanks to Yassine Bounou's own goal.
Zinedine Zidane's men will be feeling confident as they have won each of their last four LaLiga meetings with Sevilla, who haven't beaten Real since 2018 when they won 3-0 at home

Real manager Zinedine Zidane will definitely be without Lucas Vazquez, Dani Carvajal and Raphael Varane due to a ligament, muscle and leg injury respectively.
Zidane is also facing the prospect of missing Federico Valverde, Vinicius Junior and captain Sergio Ramos as all three didn't train with the rest of the team on Friday.
Eden Hazard received immense criticism for his hapless performance against Chelsea as well as his controversial attitude after the whistle but could still be included in the starting line-up.

Manager Julen Lopetegui is expected to have Joan Jordan back into the fold as the midfielder should have shaken off a toe injury.
Jules Kounde and Youssef En-Nesyri are also expected to overcome some minor issues of their own and start for Lopetegui's side
