Real Madrid just published their starting XI for the return leg of the Copa del Rey's Round of 16, where Los Blancos will have a 3-0 lead on aggregate after last week's match at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casilla, Danilo, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Asensio, Vazquez, Morata, Mariano.

Sevilla Starting XI: David Soria, Mercado, Rami, Lenglet, Escudero, Sarabia, Iborra, Kranevitter, Correa, Vietto and Ben Yedder.

Surprisingly enough, Zidane has decided to start attacker Mariano Diaz upfront alongside Alvaro Morata in what should be a 4-4-2 formation by Real Madrid with Casemiro and Kroos playing in the center of the midfield while Asensio and Vazquez take care of the wings.

Karim Benzema will be available on the bench if Madrid need him, just like Mateo Kovacic, who has recently recovered from the injury he picked up during the FIFA Club World Cup. Madrid's 3-0 lead should be big enough, but they still have to be careful and take the game seriously.
