Saturday, December 9th, 2017

Team News

  • Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos and Casemiro are all missing due to suspension at the weekend for the hosts.
  • Raphael Varane is out due to injury, while Jesus Vallejo is carrying a knock, which could potentially see Marcos Llorente and Nacho play at centre-back.
  • Mateo Kovacic should come into the midfield in Casemiro’s absence, while Marco Asensio is back fit to feature.
  • Steven N’Zonzi has made his desire to leave Sevilla very clear, and Guido Pizarro will continue in midfield.
  • Simon Kjaer should be back fit to partner Clement Lenglet at centre-back, and Sergio Rico could come back in between the sticks.
  • Nolito is expected to be preferred to Joaquin Correa on the left after the ex-Celta man performed well against Deportivo last weekend.

Prediction

  • Real Madrid will want to kick on from a disappointing 0-0 draw with Athletic last time out, but given that they have so many injuries and suspensions, it could be tough for Zinedine Zidane’s men.
  • The hosts have won their last four home La Liga matches, conceding in just one of those contests, but Sevilla have been improving of late in the league.
  • Sevilla are unbeaten in their last six competitive games, but they have won just one of their last five away matches in La Liga. Villarreal are their only victims and it will take a big effort for Los Blancos to be their second.
