Real Madrid released the squad list for Wednesday's game against Sevilla (20:45 CET).

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco.
Defenders: Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa and Nacho.
Midfielders: Khedira, Kroos, James, Bale, Lucas Silva, Isco and Illarra.
Strikers: Benzema, Chicharito and Jesé.

Pepe, Coentrao and Modric are out with injuries, while Cristiano Ronaldo will end his two-match suspension in this game, being available for Saturday's Derby against Atlético de Madrid.

It will be interesting to see what Carlo Ancelotti does in terms of the starting lineup, as Marcelo and James would miss the Derby if they get booked against Sevilla. Still, the Italian coach announced that it should be "pretty much the same team that faced Real Sociedad", meaning that he might only make small changes. For example, Ancelotti might give Keylor Navas the starting role for this match, and if he plans to rest Marcelo too, Nacho could start as Real Madrid's left-back.
