La Liga Champions Real Madrid take on Sevilla FC on Sept. 15
The reigning La Liga champions Real Madrid will be in action football fans as they pay the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan a visit on September 15 to take on Sevilla FC. Yes, the champions are more than ready to go and have a strong start to the 2012-13 Spanish La Liga season.
However, they haven't been as impressive as champs coming out of the gates and by the looks of things, it looks like they have bigger problems because their star midfielder Cristiano Ronaldo, the most popular footballer in the planet today, is not happy. Real Madrid fans, you're free to gasp now.
This is not the problem the management of Real Madrid would want to have, especially if they have plans of successfully defending the league championship they won last season.
Sure, the Los Blancos may be riding high with momentum heading to their date with Sevilla FC on September 15, having won their last match against Granada, 3-0, at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, but with Cristiano Ronaldo, the same guy who was instrumental in that win after scoring two goals for his side, noticeably unhappy after coming up with a double, things look gloomy for the reigning title holders to say the least.
Yes, Real Madrid, listed by SBOBET.com at *1.60 to beat Sevilla FC, will be in trouble alright if they can't fix what is needed to fix regarding their disgruntled superstar. I mean, come on, if it wasn't for Ronaldo's heroics, they could still be looking for their first win in the new 2012-13 Spanish La Liga season.
When asked what's been troubling the Portuguese footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo didn't say much. ''I am sad, and the people at the club know it, that is why I did not celebrate the goals,'' Cristiano Ronaldo said after scoring twice against Granada. ''There are professional issues. I cannot say any more. We will see what happens.''
To make matters worse, there are rumours claiming that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to quit on the Spanish La Liga champions. Yeah, it has come to that people. For what it's worth, Ronaldo has vowed that his commitment to the Spanish football giants will remain the same, well, as long as he stays with the club anyway.
''At this point, I just want to guarantee to the Real Madrid fans that my motivation, dedication, commitment and desire to win all competitions will not be affected,'' Cristiano Ronaldo said. ''I have too much respect for myself and for Real Madrid to ever give less to the club than all I am capable of. Abrazos (hugs) to all madridistas.''
Sevilla FC, on the other hand, have yet to taste defeat. Listed by SBOBET.com at *5.40 to beat Real Madrid, the Sevillistas have a golden opportunity to take advantage of the champions on September 15 with the Los Blancos' star footballer having some issues. That is if they play their cards right. Otherwise, they will still face a club that won the league championship last season and they will still try to defend their goal against one of the most prolific scorers in the game today who just came up with a double for his side in their last contest.
