Perotti to return against Real?

Sevilla midfielder Diego Perotti could make his first appearance since back surgery against Real Madrid this Saturday.

The 24-year-old has been plagued with injuries over the past few seasons, making just 16 La Liga appearances in 2011/12, but according to Marca the former Deportivo Moron winger is in the running to start for Los Rojiblancos against Jose Mourinho's side at the weekend.

Perotti underwent surgery in Chicago this summer to relieve pain in his back, then had to limp out of training 10 days ago with a calf strain.

But the Madrid daily believe that Perotti could return for Michel Gonzalez's side, after he was spotted back at regular training this week.

Sevilla host champions Real on Saturday at 22.00 local time.
