Missing Players and team news:
Real Madrid will definitely be without the services of Lucas Vazquez, Dani Carvajal and Raphael Varane on Sunday evening, while three more players have emerged as major doubts. Indeed, Sergio Ramos, Federico Valverde and Vinicius Junior all missed group training on Friday, meaning that the trio might be unavailable for the clash with Sevilla. As a result, there could be a switch to a back four, with Alvaro Odriozola featuring at right-back; Eden Hazard has taken a lot of criticism for his performance against Chelsea and his conduct after the match, but the Belgium international could be handed a start as part of a front three here. As for Sevilla, Joan Jordan should overcome a toe injury to feature in the middle of the park, while Jules Kounde and Youssef En-Nesyri are expected to shake off minor issues to make the starting XI. The majority of Lopetegui’s side picks itself, with Lucas Ocampos and Suso set to feature in the final third of the field, but Papu Gomez will be in contention to start if Jordan misses out. Jesus Navas and Marcos Acuna will feature in the full-back positions, meanwhile, with the two teams potentially both lining up in 4-3-3 formations for the key encounter.
