Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo represent the exact path Real Madrid wish to tread towards their future. The Brazilian duo joined the club at a tender age and found themselves in a drought for minutes initially.

Despite not having the best of starts to their careers in white, both the players persevered and fought through their worst. Now, they are a vital part of Carlo Ancelotti’s plans and seem to have secured their place in the squad.

The same path is hoped for Eduardo Camavinga and other youngsters in the team. Florentino Perez wishes for this to be the basis for the club’s long-term project, and is hence looking out for young talents with a high ceiling.

According to reports from Fichajes, Real Madrid have identified two players who satisfy the above criteria.

The first player is Enzo Fernandez. The 21-year-old is an undisputed starter for Gallardo’s River Plate and is also making a name for himself in the Argentine National Team.

Playing as an attacking midfielder, he has four goals and three assists in 11 games so far. He is currently valued at €6.5, a budget figure in today’s market.

The second player on the list is Domilson Cordeiro dos Santos or more widely known as, Dodo. The Shakhtar Donetsk player has proved to be defensive stable, yet creative and dynamic in the attack for his team at right-back.

At just 23 years of age, Dodo offers longevity and can be a contender to replace Dani Carvajal in the coming seasons.

Real Madrid are set to play hosts to Sevilla this evening, in what could prove to be a critical match in the context of the title race.

Although Los Blancos hold a formidable lead at the top of the table, the club are coming on the back of a disappointing result against Rayo Vallecano.

Dropping more points against Sevilla tonight could prove to be costly, especially with Barcelona and Girona breathing down their necks.

Potential Real Madrid lineup vs Sevilla

As Real Madrid approach this crucial game, coach Carlo Ancelotti has to make several arrangements, especially with so many players ruled out either due to injury or suspension.

Defence

Starting from the goalkeeper position, Thibaut Courtois remains out, which means Andriy Lunin should continue in between the sticks, ahead of the unhappy Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In the right-back position, Ancelotti is likely to opt for Lucas Vazquez, as Dani Carvajal is suspended after picking up two yellow cards in the last game.

On a bright note, though, Antonio Rudiger is back and should return to central defence. He will be accompanied by Nacho Fernandez at the heart of Real Madrid’s four-man backline.

Elsewhere in defence, Ferland Mendy should continue to start ahead of Fran Garcia in the left-back position.

Midfield

Moving into midfield, Eduardo Camavinga has been ruled out due to suspension. However, Ancelotti does have a myriad of options in the middle of the park.

Aurelien Tchouameni should continue to operate in the number six position, just behind the two interior midfielders Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde.

Luka Modric is an option on the bench, should Ancelotti require more experience in the middle.

Attack

As for the attack, the Real Madrid frontline should be led by Brahim Diaz once again, even though he faces fierce competition from Joselu.

Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, on the other hand, are guaranteed choices in the wide attacking spaces, though Ancelotti does have Arda Guler and Alvaro Rodriguez as potential alternatives.
