Projected Lineups: Real Madrid – Sevilla

Zinedine Zidane will miss Pepe and Sergio Ramos for the tough La Liga match against Sevilla on Sunday. Thus, he will have to make at least a couple of changes in his starting lineup.

Raphael Varane and Nacho Fernandez are expected to come in as the centre-back pair, with Marcelo featuring at left-back. In the right side of defence, Zidane could continue rotating Danilo and Daniel Carvajal, meaning that the Brazilian would be the starter this time.

In midfield, Casemiro has earned a spot among the starters with his brilliant performances. Last week, he saved Los Blancos with a last-minute goal that earned Real the victory at Las Palmas. The Brazilian will feature alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.

Karim Benzema is expected to make his return after three weeks on the sidelines, but Zidane will possibly decide to give him just a few minutes of action. Thus, with Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo having a guaranteed spot in the lineup, the main doubt is whether Zizou will pick Isco, Lucas Vazquez or James Rodriguez to complete the eleven.

This is Real Madrid’s projected lineup: Navas; Danilo, Varane, Nacho Fernandez, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Vazquez, Ronaldo, Bale.

Sevilla will miss Konoplyanka, N’Zonzi and Vitolo due to injury, and playmaker Ever Banega is also out through suspension. Krohn-Dehli is a doub but with muscle problems he is expected to make it in the lineup.

This is Sevilla’s projected lineup: Rico; Coke, Rami, Carrico, Tremoulinas; Cristoforo, Krychowiak; Reyes, Iborra, Krohn-Dehli; Gameiro.
