Line-ups: Sevilla-Real Madrid

Asier Illarramendi and Raphael Varane come in for Real Madrid as they prepare to play Sevilla this evening.

With Los Blancos looking for the three points that will keep them alongside Atletico Madrid and Barcelona in the title race, Carlo Ancelotti has made only two changes from the side that lost to Barcelona at the weekend.

Angel Di Maria is unavailable due to suspension, so Asier Illarramendi comes into a midfield three alongside Luka Modric and Xabi Alonso.

The ‘BBC’, as they’ve become known, start once again, with Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo looking to fire the goals that could see them leapfrog the Blaugrana at the summit of the table.

Raphael Varane plays at centre-back with Sergio Ramos out, partnering Pepe.

The home side meanwhile, have named an attacking XI, opting to field Ivan Rakitic, Marko Marin, Jose Antonio Reyes and Carlos Bacca from the off.

Sevilla: Beto, Coke, Pareja, Fazio, Alberto, Iborra, Mbia, Reyes, Rakitic, Marin; Bacca

Real Madrid: Diego Lopez; Carvajal, Varane, Pepe, Marcelo; Alonso, Modric, Illaraa; Benzema, Bale Ronaldo
