Given the lack of troops in attack, Ancelotti responds with five midfielders. Without Benzema, Vinicius, Asensio or Mariano, overbooking in the engine room and Rodrygo as the spearhead. It seemed written that the man from Osasco would be the white ‘nine’, although the question remained whether Álvaro Rodríguez or Hazard would have their chance. This would have mutated the position of ’21’. Finally, neither The bull nor the Belgian. Valverde will multiply on the right wing, Modric will act as a hook and Ceballos appears, a priori, as the owner of the left-handed flank.
A fresh lineup from Carletto to face a Sevilla that will have a large percentage of the mind in the Europa League final against Roma on Wednesday. However, the man from Reggiolo promised a “competitive team” at a press conference and that’s how it has been. Different from the usual scheme, but full of big names. The midfield is completed by a double pivot formed by Tchouameni, who faces a new exam to end the season with a better taste in his mouth, and Krooswhich today will have company as closure.
Starting XI for Real Madrid against Sevilla
While on the defensive line the focus will be on Ferland Mendy. The Frenchman, reinforced by Ancelotti (“we must trust him. He is very strong and has done very well in the past”), is experiencing his most hesitant stage since landing in Madrid and any game is vital to reinforce himself. The right side will be Lucas Vázquez, expected when Carvajal was suspended, and Militao-Alabathe most trusted couple, will be the final shields of Thibaut Courtois in an eleven that looks like this: Courtois; Lucas Vázquez, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Tchouameni, Kroos; Valverde, Modric, Ceballos; Rodrygo.
