La Liga action is back and Real Madrid is all set to lock horns against Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in a crucial fixture on Saturday. Sevilla were taken to the cleaners by Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League during the week as they were taken apart 4-0 defeat against the Premier League side. Although, they managed to sneak home 1-0 against Huesca in their previous La Liga game, their work will be cut out ahead of this game.
Real Madrid, too, are not without their own problems. They have been defeated twice on the bounce in the past week and will be keen to get back on winning ways.
Carlos Fernandez and Yassine Bounou have both tested negative for the coronavirus and might feature in this game. However, goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik is doubtful for this game and this could pose a headache for them.
Eden Hazard’s injury-prone season continues and he will not feature for Real Madrid this weekend. Federico Valverde and Dani Carvajal are also injured and hence, they too have been sidelined.
Zidane has decided to start a 4-3-3 formation with Rodrygo and Vinicius both starting. Odegaard could come off the bench later in the game if needed. Lucas Vazquez will start as Madrid’s right-back once again, so it’s safe to assume that Odriozola isn’t ready to start yet.
