Sevilla travel to Spain’s capital to face Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu this evening, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.
Jorge Sampaoli will be looking to continue his unbeaten run with Sevilla as they take on the challenge of walking away with at least a point from Madrid.
The Argentine coach is facing problems in defence. With Tanguy Nianzou sidelined until the new year and Kike Salas suspended, Nemanja Gudelj is expected to slot into the defensive line. Defender Karim Rakik is yet to recover from an injury as well.
Kasper Dolberg has failed to make the desired impact at the club so far this season, leading AS to believe that Rafa Mir will start against Los Blancos.
Predicted Sevilla lineup against Real Madrid
AS predict that Sampaoli will field the following starting XI vs Real Madrid – Bono – Jesús Navas, Nemanja Gudelj, Marcão, Alex Telles – Érik Lamela, Joan Jordán, Isco, Ivan Rakitić, Óliver Torres – Rafa Mir.
