Good news for Benítez.

Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale are ready to be included in Real Madrid's list to play against Sevilla tomorrow, according to Marca. Those two players have been training with the squad for the last couple of days and while it could be risky to start them, their presence on the bench would be very helpful in case things go wrong.

James should be ready to start the game after being on the bench against PSG. The Colombian player has spent almost two months on the sidelines and Benítez will need to be careful with his minutes after such a tricky injury.

It seems that Benítez and his coaching staff are slowly recovering most of their players. Marcelo will not be available this time but the Brazilian left-back is working hard to be available for the Clásico against FC Barcelona on November 21. Nacho or Arbeloa should replace Marcelo in the lineup.
