Real Madrid team for Sevilla clash

Sevilla - Real Madrid

Real Madrid have announced the starting line-up for the second leg of the Copa del Rey last-16 clash against Sevilla. Zidane's rest-and-rotate policy continues with several of the usual names missing, some through injury.

Mariano and Morata lead the line.

As we reported yesterday, left back in the Spanish capital is Cristiano Ronaldo (who was also rested for the first leg) and Luka Modric to rest, while Isco and James have muscular problems. With Los Blancos looking to defend their 3-0 lead - while also avoid defeat to stretch their unbeaten record - Varane and Benzema will start on the bench. Young striker Mariano gets his chance to shine in attack alongside Morata.

The XI that will take to the Sánchez Pizjuán field for Real Madrid are: Casilla; Danilo, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo; Lucas Vázquez, Kroos, Casemiro, Asensio; Morata, Mariano.

For Sevilla: Soria; Mercado, Rami, Lenglet, Escudero; Sarabia, Iborra, Kranevitter, Correa; Vietto, Ben Yedder.

Tonight's referee is Undiano Mallenco.
