Madrid are making their third and final change as Marcelo is replaced by Mendy.
That was incisive attacking play from Madrid as Sevilla seemed caught out by the speed at which Lucas Vazquez was able to send the delivery into the box, and the winger also showed excellent accuracy to put it on a plate for Casemiro.
GOOOAL! Casemiro scores his second to make it 2-1 to Madrid! Madrid sprays the ball wide to Lucas Vazquez on the right flank, and he then floats a dangerous first-time delivery into the box which Casemiro rises to nod into the bottom right-hand corner.
Sevilla are making their first change with En-Nesyri replacing El-Haddadi who suffered an injury just before the goal.

Madrid are making a double change with the first switch seeing Benzema enter the fray in place of Jovic.
Madrid are looking to slow things down after taking the lead with one of their first major chances of the game, with the hosts now passing the ball along the defence and midfield as they wait for an opening.
Jovic had been struggling to make a meaningful impact on the game, but he was integral to giving Madrid the lead. The striker showed great awareness to tee up Casemiro in a pocket of space near the byline, and the midfielder then finished the well-crafted move in style.
GOOOAL! Casemiro makes it 1-0 to Madrid! A patient passage of build-up play results in Casemiro playing a neat one-two with Jovic on the edge of the box, with the striker flicking it into his teammate’s path on the right-hand side of the box, and Casemiro then lifts the ball over the goalkeeper and into the bottom left-hand corner from a tight angle.
Kroos receives the ball just outside the box before seeing his low strike blocked after he cut inside, and this means Jovic needs to react quickly when the rebound drops to him in a central position, but he fails to do so as Sevilla are instead able to launch a quick break.

The second half is back underway!
The two sides are now back on the pitch ahead of the second half.
Zidane will demand his side show more creativity in the final third during the second period, with Jovic having looked isolated in attack for large portions of the opening half. Madrid have registered just four attempts on goal so far, with all of these having been from outside the box, and there can be no doubt the hosts need to be more incisive in attack. Meanwhile, Sevilla will be relatively satisfied with their first-half display while they are perhaps unlucky to not be in front, even though it looked like a clear foul in the build-up to De Jong's disallowed effort.

The players are now emerging from the tunnel as kick-off edges closer.
Sevilla enter this clash sitting fourth in the LaLiga table as a result of their promising top-flight campaign to date, and they can move to within two points of the leaders with a victory over Madrid. The visitors head to the Santiago Bernabeu following a mixed run of form which has seen them pick up four points from their last three league matches, but they did seal an emphatic 5-0 victory over Copa Del Rey opponents Escobedo in their last outing. Today’s clash also sees Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui return to the Spanish capital following his unsuccessful stint as Madrid manager in 2018.
Real Madrid could temporarily overtake Barcelona at the LaLiga summit if they overcome Sevilla in this match, with the current league leaders not hosting Granada until Sunday evening. Zinedine Zidane’s side are level on points with Barcelona at present despite having drawn three of their last four league games, while they have failed to score in two of their last three top-flight clashes. However, the Santiago Bernabeu outfit enter this match following after beating city rivals Atletico Madrid to the Spanish Super Cup title last weekend.
SUBS: Nolito, Rony Lopes, Sergio Escudero, Daniel Campo, Youssef En-Nesyri, Yassine Bounou, Oliver Torres.
