After clinching back-to-back impressive wins against Barcelona and Elche, Real Madrid will face off against Sevilla at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.

With Barcelona securing a win against Villarreal on Thursday, Los Blancos’ lead at the top of the table is back to three points and they must pick up a win at the Bernabeu to restore their six-point cushion over their eternal rivals.

Heading into the game versus Sevilla, Los Blancos have released the squad list for the encounter.

And the big news for Real Madrid is that Thibaut Courtois has returned to the squad, with manager Carlo Ancelotti already confirming that the Belgian will start against Los Nervionenses.

This will be Courtois’ first match for the Merengues after the international break, with the 29-year-old having been sidelined with sciatica.

Dani Ceballos and Mariano Diaz also remain unavailable as they continue to recover from their respective injury issues.

Just a while ago it was reported that Karim Benzema had injured himself in training and could miss the game against Sevilla. However, it seems that it was just false alarm as the Ballon d’Or winner has been named on the squad list by Ancelotti.

Elsewhere, there are no other surprises in the squad called up by Ancelotti, with the familiar faces making the list.

The manager also hinted that he could keep rotation at a minimum for Saturday’s encounter even though Real Madrid played on Wednesday night. So, the likes of Eduardo Camavinga, Nacho and Eden Hazard will again have to contend with minutes off the bench.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
