Official: Real Madrid starting lineup against Sevilla
Matches continue to come hard and fast for Real Madrid, who take on Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in gameweek 32 of La Liga. A win here would take them 15 points clear at the top and in with a real shot of sealing the title in gameweek 34 itself.
As has been tradition almost all season, Carlo Ancelotti has announced his starting lineup almost two hours ahead of the game with three changes to the team that took on Chelsea in midweek.
The suspended Casemiro is replaced by Eduardo Camavinga in midfield, while Luka Modric and Toni Kroos flank him on the right and left respectively.
Karim Benzema speadheads the attack, hoping to add to his bizarre goal tally this season. He has Vinicius Jr. for support on the left, while Federico Valverde retains his spot on the right side of the trident.
There are two changes in the back-four. Eder Militao comes in for Nacho afetr serving his UCL suspension, while David Alaba continues alongside him in the heart of the defence.
Dani Carvajal continues at right-back, while Lucas Vazquez presumably starts at left-back in the absence of Ferland Mendy and Marcelo. Thibaut Courtois continues to don the gloves for Los Blancos.

Real Madrid offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker, one of 4-5 names on radar
There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.
Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.
The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.
To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.
Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.
A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.
It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.
Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
