Carlo Ancelotti has almost a full squad to choose from for Real Madrid’s La Liga clash with Sevilla on Saturday. The Italian coach has, however, received confirmation that he will be without midfielder Dani Ceballos. The creative player from Seville pulled up in Thursday’s session with a thigh issue and was unable to train on Friday. As reported by AS, Ceballos has played just 73 minutes this season.
Ancelotti has not considered it necessary to force Arda Güler either, although the idea is for him to start playing again soon after a spell on the sidelines. The Turkish player has not been called into the matchday squad for the clash in Andalusia.
