Real Madrid announced the squad list for Thursday's Copa del Rey match against Sevilla, which will be the return leg of the Round of 16 after Real Madrid's 3-0 victory in the first leg.


Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

Defenders: Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Coentrao and Danilo.

Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Kovacic, Asensio and Enzo.

Attackers: Benzema, Lucas Vázquez, Mariano and Morata.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Modric will not be available as Zidane is hoping to keep their lead and enjoy a somewhat comfortable match. James Rodriguez and Isco Alarcon are also out of the game.

"James has a small injury and we will take no risks with him," said Zidane during the pre-match press conference. Isco picked up yet another small injury during Saturday's match against Granada.

Madrid will be facing Sevilla this Sunday again but this time in La Liga, so it will be important for Zidane to have his players fresh for that game, which will arguably be more important than this one.

Kovacic, Ramos and Vazquez are all back.
