Decisive game for the Liga BBVA title. Real Madrid will step on the Sánchez Pizjuán pitch knowing Barcelona's result against Córdoba, but no matter what that result is Los Blancos will need to win the match in Sevilla.

Sevilla Projected XI: Rico, Coke, Carriço, Kolodziejczak, Tremoulinas, Banega, Krychowiak, Vidal, Iborra, Reyes, Bacca.

Real Madrid Projected XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Varane, Pepe, Marcelo, Kroos, Ramos, Rodríguez, Bale, Ronaldo, Chicharito.

Ancelotti will likely deploy Ramos in the midfield once again, given that Sevilla are a threat in the aerial game. Neither Isco nor Illarramendi would match Sevilla's intensity in the midfield, so putting Ramos in that position could be a very good decision.

Upfront, Gareth Bale is set to make his return to the starting lineup after missing the last three games with a calf injury. Chicharito will likely maintain the starting spot with Cristiano Ronaldo alongside him. Ancelotti will need the Mexican to keep his good form if Real want to get the three points.
