Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are back in Real Madrid's Starting XI and that definitely is an encouraging sign after a very disappointing season by Los Blancos. Those three players will try to gain some momentum for the difficult matches ahead against Barça and Wolfsburg.

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

Sevilla Starting XI: Rico, Coke, Rami, Kolo, Tremoulinas, Krychowiak, Diogo, Cristóforo, Escudero, Iborra, Gameiro.

Emery has deployed a very defensive lineup and his 11 men will work very hard to dismantle Real's offensive efforts and make things uncomfortable for Los Blancos. Madrid should also be careful with Iborra, Rami and Krychowiak off set pieces given how dangerous they are when the ball is in the air. Nacho and Varane and quite vulnerable on those plays and Madrid must not concede a lot of corner-kicks in order to have a safe game.
