- Carlo Ancelotti said in today's press conference that he will not rotate his players against Sevilla tomorrow. Still, several journalists in Spanish radio stations and newspapers claim that Marcelo will likely take some rest and avoid a yellow card that would ban him for Saturday's match. Since Coentrao is injured, Nacho would be his replacement.
- Although tomorrow's game is crucial for Real Madrid's fate in La Liga, the Madrid derby that will be held on Saturday is already in everybody's minds. Tiago Mendes and Arda shoe-thrower Turan did not take part in Atlético's training session today, and their participation in the game is questionable. Meanwhile, a spot starred by Isco and Koke to promote the Madrid derby has been released today and I can tell Barry Allen has done a great job with them.

- Real Madrid player Denis Cheryshev, currently loaned to Villarreal, did very well against FC Barcelona last Sunday. His father spoke to Marca today, and told them that his son is willing to go back to Madrid in the end of the season, to earn a spot and win trophies with the club he loves the most.
- And some great news for the cantera fans, as Martin Ødegaard will make his debut with Castilla tomorrow!
