Stevan Jovetic and fellow signing Clement Lenglet are both in contention to face Real in Thursday's Copa del Rey last-16 return.

Sevilla - Real Madrid

New signing Stevan Jovetic has gone straight into the Sevilla squad for Thursday's Copa del Rey last-16 second leg against Real Madrid (21:15 CET).

The 27-year-old Montenegrin, who joined the Andalusians on loan from Inter Milan on Tuesday, is joined in the group by fellow January recruit Clement Lenglet.

N'Zonzi, Mariano and Vázquez not involved

Meanwhile, coach Jorge Sampaoli has opted not to risk key trio Steven N'Zonzi, Mariano Ferreira and Franco Vázquez, who all ended Saturday's LaLiga victory away to Real Sociedad with niggles.

That decision suggests that, with his side 3-0 down from the first leg at the Bernabéu, the Argentinian boss is prioritising Sunday's league fixture - also against Real.

Sevilla squad to face Real Madrid:

Sergio Rico, David Soria, Kranevitter, Lenglet, Iborra, Vietto, Nasri, Correa, Ben Yedder, Kiyotake, Jovetic, Sarabia, Escudero, Ganso, Vitolo, Nico Pareja, Rami, Mercado.
