Very important match for Real Madrid after Barça beat Villarreal.

Benítez and his men will face a real test in Sevilla against a team that were capable of beating FC Barcelona a few weeks ago.

Sevilla Starting XI: Sergio Rico; Ferreira, Rami, Andreoli, Tremoulinas; Krychowiak, N'Zonzi; Vitolo, Banega, Konoplyanka; Immobile.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casilla, Danilo, Pepe, Ramos, Nacho, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Isco, Bale, Ronaldo.

Real will need to be very careful with Konoplyanka and Vitolo's speed. Nacho is not the ideal replacement for Marcelo and that could be problematic.

On the other hand, Bale starts another game for Madrid after recovering from his muscle injury, so Jesé will be on the bench, just like James Rodríguez. That's a very talented bench and one that could turn things around if needed. It's surprising to see Pepe starting in Varane's spot since the French has completed very good performances when Pepe was injured. Nobody knows who will start in the center of the defense from now on.
