Tonight will mark the BCC's return to the lineup. Karim Benzema injured his hamstring just as Gareth Bale was recovering from his calf injury, so they haven't played together in a while. Zidane will try to gain some momentum for the demanding games ahead (Barcelona and Wolfsburg) by beating a Sevilla side that have not managed to win an away game in la Liga this campaign.

Real Madrid projected XI: Keylor, Danilo, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Sevilla projected XI: Rico, Coke, Rami, Kolo, Tremoulinas, Carriço, Krychowiak, Reyes, Iborra, Escudero, Gameiro.

Gameiro is in good form and Varane and Nacho must work hard to stop him now that neither Ramos nor Pepe are available.

Real Madrid have played well at the Bernabéu this season but Sevilla will be a tough team to beat ahead of the FIFA break. Emery could have a few aces on his sleeve to make things difficult for Madrid.
