Sevilla vs Real Madrid, 2017 Copa del Rey: Projected lineups and team news

This should be a meaningless game for Real Madrid, right? Right?

Real Madrid face Sevilla away from the Bernabeu in what will be the return leg of the Copa del Rey's Round of 16. Los Blancos earned a big 3-0 lead on the first leg, so coach Zinedine Zidane will be hoping to keep that lead and advance to the next round of the competition.

"Tomorrow we’ll have to overcome problems, I’m sure about that. They are going to come out strongly. I know how football is and when you lose 3-0, the start of the game is going to be tough and difficult. We have to be ready at the start of the game. Then we’ll see how the game evolves. We’re looking forward to a very tough game and we’re going to have to overcome problems, I’m sure of that," said Zidane.

It's clear that Sevilla will try to do their very best in front of their fans and Madrid have to be ready. However, Los Blancos will be without Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco and James Rodriguez, so they are very short-handed for tonight's game.

Sevilla Projected XI: Rico, Mercado, Pareja, Rami, Vitolo, Ganso, Kranevitter, iborra, Sarabia, Nasri, Vietto.

Real Madrid Projected XI: Casilla, Danilo, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Kovacic, Lucas Vazquez, Asensio, Morata.
