Sevilla welcomes back midfielder Diego Perotti from injury for Saturday's clash with Real Madrid at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. But the Andalusian outfit is set to be without Jose Antonio Reyes, who missed the goalless draw at Rayo Vallecano with a shoulder problem.

Goalkeeper Diego Lopez returns from suspension, while French midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia may be given his debut.

Real Madrid has no fresh injury concerns, with the suspended Fabio Coentrao being the only absentee. Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to start despite his apparent dissatisfaction with the Madrid hierarchy.


  • Sevilla is yet to taste defeat in La Liga this season, with an opening home win over Granada followed by successive draws away to Granada and Rayo Vallecano.
