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

Sevilla FC vs Real Madrid Spanish Primera Division Live Streaming & Goal Updates

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane does not "care what people think" about the fact he made wholesale changes to his team for Wednesday's 3-2 defeat at Sevilla.

However, the second-string Real failed to repay Zidane for his faith as they needed two late goals to avoid complete embarrassment Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in the3-2 defeat. 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. "Tomorrow we will be back to work, we have another game on Saturday [at home to Celta Vigo], and that's it".

Real Madrid defender, Sergio Ramos, became the first player in the Primera to score a penalty, miss a penalty and score an own-goal on his return to his former club. "We have a Champions League final coming up, I'm the coach and I decide". "But he was good, like the others, above all in the second half".

Zidane added: "He's our captain and every time we come here he's involved in something". "Above all the first half, the second half we had better movement". He was not flawless with the [missed] penalty, but that can happen.

"I hope we can win the Champions League, it really is a fantastic competition".

"We were good in most areas, but we did nothing in the last 30 metres, nothing on the second line, nothing to worry the opponent", he said.

In the standing table of La Liga, Real Madrid is at the third place with 72 points and the team Sevilla FC is at the eighth place with 51 points.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco and Dani Carvajal all missed out through injury, Gareth Bale was suspended and Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Keylor Navas and Marcelo were rested.

"When you look at the team we have put out, I think it's a team that could win".

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.
