Los Blancos will be high in confidence heading into the clash after securing the Spanish Super Cup last weekend after defeating cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid on penalties.

The win over Atletico extended Real's unbeaten run to 16 matches across all competitions, with their last defeat coming against Real Mallorca in October 2019.

Victory for Zinedine Zidane's men this afternoon will move the side top of the log, although they will be without Franciso Valverde, Gareth Bale and Hazard today.

Sevilla, meanwhile, will be hoping to cement fourth spot after starting the year with a 1-1 draw draw at home to Athletic Bilbao.

Today's task will be made even tough as defender Lucas Ocampos misses out through suspension.

When these two sides met earlier in the season, Karim Benzema's second-half strike was enough to hand Los Blancos a 1-0 win at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.

Here's how they line up:

Real Madrid: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Varane, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Lucas Vazquez, Rodrygo, Jovic.

Sevilla: Vaclík, Jesús Navas, Koundé, Diego Carlos, Reguilón - Fernando, Gudelj, Banega, Munir, De Jong, Vázquez.
