Real Madrid Starting XI: Casillas, Arbeloa, Varane, Ramos, Nacho, Kroos, Khedira, Isco, James, Bale, Benzema

Sevilla Starting XI: Beto; Navarro, Kolo, Carrico, Figueiras; Mbia, Iborra, Krychowiak; Deulofeu, Vitolo, Bacca.

Must-win msatch for Ancelotti and his men. Gareth Bale will look forward to silent his critics and complete a good performance that gives Real the win.

Sevilla will be a tough team to beat, but this match will be extremely important in the race for La Liga. Even with Cristiano Ronaldo suspended, Real Madrid should still have enough firepower to dismantle Sevilla, but the defensive line will need to stay focused in order to stop the Andalusian's counterattacks.

Furthermore, the players could be distracted, as Real Madrid will visit the Vicente Calderón this Saturday in what will be an even more important game for the title. With FC Barcelona back in good form, Real Madrid can't afford to drop many points until the next Clásico, which will be played at the Camp Nou.
