Real Madrid host Sevilla knowing that they will be crowned La Liga champions if they win their remaining four games. Barcelona and Atletico dropped points this Saturday and Real Madrid will win the tie-breaker with the two of them, meaning that they will lead the table with a win against Sevilla tonight.

Madrid will be without Sergio Ramos and Ferland Mendy, so coach Zinedine Zidane will be forced to move Nacho back to the center of the defensive line alongside Militao.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Odriozola, Militao, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Vinicius, Asensio, Benzema.

Sevilla predicted XI: Bounou, Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Acuña, Fernando, Rakitic, Suso, Gomez, Ocampos, En-Nesyri.

Sevilla are playing quality football during this second half of the season, so this will be a tough game for Los Blancos, who must find a way to score the three points if they want to win La Liga title this season.
