It will not be easy for Real Madrid to collect all three points against Sevilla without starting goalkeeper Keylor Navas. The Costa Rican tried his best and rushed his recovery to feature in Tuesday's meeting with PSG, but he is now injured again so Kiko Casilla will have to defend Real's goal.
Gareth Bale will be at Benítez's disposal but he should not be able to start the game. His muscle injuries are always tricky and Benítez should not take any chances with him considering how well Jesé has been performing lately. Sergio Ramos is also back with the team and set to start in the center of Madrid's defense, while James and Isco will fight for the starting spot on the right wing.
Casemiro will protect Kroos and Modric in the midfield unless Benítez decides to change his favorite lineup today. A win would be very important to reach El Clásico in top form.
