Real Madrid will be facing Sevilla without Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Mateo Kovacic and Lucas Vazquez. Luckily enough for Los Blancos, the Copa del Rey is not a priority and some of those players should be ready to go when they visit Sevilla in La Liga two weeks from now.
All things considered, players like James Rodriguez, Isco Alarcon, Morata or even Marco Asensio will be hoping to get some minutes tonight in order to prove they deserve a bigger role in this team.
"They are a competitive opponent, very good and full of confidence. It's going to be a tricky match for us and I hope it will be for them as well. It's going to be a good match and we want to be ready to compete well," said Zidane during the pre-match press conference.
The French coach did not speak about his starting lineup but Morata and Benzema are expected to start upfront.
