Real Madrid visit Sevilla hoping to bounce back from their disappointing results. The Sanchez Pizjuan might not be the easiest venue to regain confidence and momentum, but it will give Madrid the chance to make a statement and prove that they can still fight for the Liga title also four days ahead of a monumental clash against Gladbach where their future in the Champions League will be decided.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Odriozola, Varane, Nacho, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Odegaard, Rodrygo, Benzema.

Sevilla predicted XI: Vaclik, Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Rekik, Fernando, Jordan, Rakitic, Torres, Ocampos, De Jong.

Coach Zinedine Zidane has different options for his offense. If he decides to go for a 4-4-2 with Odegaard reinforcing the midfield as he’s done lately, Rodrygo and Benzema will likely start upfront. If 4-3-3 is the formation he chooses, Vinicius and Asensio could play on the wings alongside Benzema.

Either way, Madrid need the three points tonight and Zidane’s job could even be in jeopardy if Los Blancos lose the game, so this is a big match where everyone needs to step up and prove their worth.
