Real Madrid will play hosts to Sevilla on Sunday night at the Santiago Bernabeu as they look to stretch their advantage at the top of the La Liga table.

Los Blancos head into the game on the back of 1-1 draw against Rayo Vallecano and will want to correct their course after the slip-up.

Ahead of the contest against the Andalusians, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has announced the squad list of players he will have at his disposal for tomorrow.

The big news is that Antonio Rudiger is back from injury and is on the list, with Ancelotti even confirming that the German defender will start tomorrow against Sevilla.

Meanwhile, Joselu misses out through an ankle injury, joining Thibaut Corutois, Eder Militao, David Alaba, and Jude Bellingham on the sidelines.

It leaves Ancelotti with just Vinicius, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Arda Guler as options in attack. As such, youngster Alvaro Rodriguez has been called up.

In addition, Dani Carvajal and Eduardo Camavinga are out due to suspensions. But Ferland Mendy returns after missing the Rayo Vallecano encounter through suspension.

Real Madrid are eager to enhance their options in central defense after deciding to not sign any defenders in the recent January transfer window.

Several players are on the club’s radar, with Lille’s promising center-back Leny Yoro most notably high on the club’s wishlist.

However, the Merengues are not turning a blind eye to their homegrown academy gems, as Rafa Marin is making a strong case for himself to join the first team dynamics next summer.

Rafa Marin strengthens his case

The 21-year-old is presently on loan at Alaves and is showcasing solid performances in the heart of defense, with Real Madrid reported to count on him next season.

Now, AS have reported that the reason for the club’s trust in Marin is his upsurge in performances at Alaves. And if Nacho Fernandez leaves, Marin will serve as the fourth central defender in the squad.

A testament to his worth to Alaves is the fact that Marin has not been benched since mid-November, demonstrating his importance in coach Luis Garcia Plaza’s defense.

With 2,282 total minutes played, he ranks as the fourth-highest on the team with the most minutes.

Against Atletico Madrid recently, Rafa Marin enjoyed a stellar outing. In addition to making 15 recoveries and 9 interceptions, he took part in 24 defensive actions. Along with winning two ground and four air duels, he only committed one foul.

An important summer for Marin

Not only is Rafa Marín returning to Real Madrid, but he is also going to represent Spain in the Olympics in Paris.

Marin was included in five of the six matches during the Euro Under-21 qualifiers because coach Santi Denia of Spain’s under-21 team greatly values his presence and height (1.91 meters).

Marin has a bright future ahead of him if all goes according to plan. His season with Alaves is sure to serve as a stepping stone for his integration into the Real Madrid first team.
