Real Madrid visit Sevilla’s Sanchez Pizjuan without Casemiro and Mendy, two crucial starters. While it’s clear that Nacho will replace the French defender on the left flank of the team’s defensive line, Ancelotti’s choice for the midfield might not be as easy.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Nacho, Valverde, Kroos, Modric, Camavinga, Vinicius, Benzema.
Sevilla predicted XI: Bounou, Navas, Kounde, Diego Carlos, Acuña, Gudelj, Gomez, Jordan, Corona, Ocampos, En-Nesyri.
Adding an extra midfielder has given Real Madrid an extra gear in recent weeks, so Carlo Ancelotti will likely start Camavinga, Kroos, Modric and Valverde. If that’s the case, expect Camavinga to play just in front of the defensive line as Casemiro’s replacement, even if that’s not his natural spot. Sevilla are a possession-oriented team, so Madrid’s midfield will have to work hard and make sure that they press efficiently.
