Sevilla vs Real Madrid - Real Madrid's expectations and line-up

Sevilla vs Real Madrid – Real Madrid’s expectations and line-up

Zinedine Zidane made seven changes to the side that drew 2-2 against Barcelona in El Clasico last Sunday as injuries, suspensions and a need to rotate saw Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric sit out, with Sevilla taking full advantage with a little help from their former player Ramos. The away team scored the goal in the 45th minute by Miguel Layun from a sublime assist from Steven Nzonzi as the Rojiblancos had a comfortable lead over Real Madrid in the first half. It is a pity as these are the players who play less, but we can not reproach them, they almost turned it around at the end with the two goals. We had some control over the game and the team did not play badly. "We have a final [of the Champions League] on May 26 and I don't care what people think [about rotating]; I am the coach and I decide".

Zidane added: "He's our captain and every time we come here he's involved in something".

"We have many games and some have to rest", Zidane told reporters. "But he was good, like the others, above all in the second half". He was not flawless with the [missed] penalty, but that can happen. Real Madrid pushed forward to get a goal but they have not been prolific up front for the entire night as Sevilla got the better side of the visitors who are struggling to stamp a commanding play at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

Meanwhile, the defeat to Joaquín Caparrós's men leaves the Los Blancos three points behind second place Atletico Madrid on the La Liga table.

"When you lose, you can not be happy, but it will not affect what we do until the end of the season".

"When you look at the team we put out, it is a team which could easily have won", he said.

As the game moved into its final moments, Ramos was then unlucky to see a cross deflected off his outstretched leg and fly past Francisco Casilla in the Madrid goal.
