Casemiro suspended - How Real Madrid could line up against Sevilla

Casemiro is suspended for Real Madrid's La Liga clash with Sevilla, while several other players are out injured

Real Madrid will be without Casemiro for Sunday's crunch La Liga fixture against Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

After an accumulation of yellow cards, the Brazilian is suspended for the game between first and third.

At the moment, Real Madrid sit on 72 points while Sevilla are on 60. Any victory for Los Blancos would see Sevilla's already slim hopes of winning the league evaporate.

As well as Casemiro being out, Carlo Ancelotti has issues in his defence due to unavailable personnel.

Ferland Mendy and Marcelo are both injured which means an auxiliary left-back will be required, and this will more than likely be Nacho, who has been passed fit to play despite some uncertainty after the Champions League game against Chelsea.

Thibaut Courtois will start in goal behind a back four of Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba and Nacho.

With Casemiro out, that should allow for Federico Valverde to slot into the midfield three alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. The Uruguayan played a hybrid role against Chelsea, patrolling midfield as well as the right wing, but he'll move into a more conventional position on Sunday.

Eduardo Camavinga is also an option for Ancelotti.

In attack, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior are sure-fire starters, while Rodrygo might be given the opportunity to impress.

Eden Hazard and Isco are injured, while Dani Ceballos and Jesus Vallejo are doubts due to Covid.
