Sevilla will rely on attacker Wissam Ben Yedder who scored a hat-trick in Sevilla's 4:0 away victory against Real Sociedad last weekend.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored five goals in the last three matches he played. As always, he will be the man to watch.

SEVILLA NEWS

Sevilla took advantage of Barcelona's bad form and they are currently second on the table. They had an amazing night in Sociedad, where they celebrated 4:0 victory against very tough opponent, which is currently sixth on the table. Sevilla will play two games in the row against Real Madrid, one in Primera, one in Copa del Rey, but they are certainly focused primarily on the Primera match - Real celebrated a 3:0 victory in the first leg match, so Sevilla's chances to eliminate them from Copa del Rey are really slim. Michael Krohn-Dehli is still injured, alongside Daniel Carrico and Carlos Fernandez, but neither of these players had an important role in the team this season.

REAL MADRID NEWS

Real Madrid continued their series of victories in 2017. They seem unbeatable at the moment, but they will have to be careful against Sevilla, which is currently second on the table. With five points advantage over Barcelona and a game in hand, Real will try to widen the gap and leave their arch-rivals way behind them. Zinedine Zidane has difficulties with injured players - Gareth Bale, Lucas Vasquez and Mateo Kovacic won't be able to take part in the forthcoming derby match. However, Isco and Casemiro are in a fine form at the moment and the absence of the above mentioned stars shouldn't be that much of a problem for Real Madrid.

SUMMING UP!

Real Madrid is certainly an absolute favorite in the forthcoming match. Sevilla is currently 2nd on the table and they had some amazing games this season, but Real Madrid is on a different level. It will be a huge surprise if the hosts manage to snatch a point here.
