Real Madrid Vs Sevilla, UEFA Supercup: Confirmed lineups

Ancelotti goes all in for the UEFA Supercup.

Stu Forster

Real Madrid starting XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrao, Kroos, Modric, James, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Sevilla starting XI: Beto, Coke, Fazio, Pareja, Navarro, Krychowiak, Carriço, Vidal, Vitolo, Suarez, Bacca.

Sevilla have lost Rakitic and they will clearly suffer without him in the midfield. New signing Krychowiak and Carriço will try to step it up and fill Rakitic and Mbia's shoes.

It will be important for Ancelotti's men to contain Sevilla's counterattacks. Given that Real Madrid will be playing without a pure defensive midfielder, both Modric and Kroos will have to work hard and protect Ramos and Pepe. This will be a good test to see if this 'all in' lineup is solid enough to be considered an option later in the season.
