Sevilla vs. Real Madrid: Preview and TV schedule

Denis Doyle

Sevilla should provide a tough test for Real Madrid who are looking to bounce back from a disappointing Clásico loss.

Real Madrid must quickly forget about their loss against Barcelona and prepare for a tough test against surging Sevilla on Wednesday.

Sevilla have won five straight matches, moving all the way up to fifth place in the process. After a rocky start, Unai Emery has turned their season around and a win over Real Madrid would be a huge notch on the belt, so to speak.

Carlo Ancelotti will be without two starters thanks to card suspensions, making his team's task that much more difficult. How well the Madrid players react to his message of needing to forget about the Clásico could help shape their title hopes. A loss could prove fatal to those hopes, with just eight round left to play after Wednesday.

Sevilla injuries and suspensions

Out: Sebastián Cristóforo (knee), Daniel Carriço (ankle).
