Real face Dybala-less Juve; Bayern aim to finish the job against Sevilla

Real Madrid vs Juventus

Sergio Ramos is suspended for Real Madrid due to an accumulation of bookings in the competition.

Nacho and Jesús Vallejo are also injury doubts for the home side, leaving Zinedine Zidane potentially short of options at center-back.

If Vallejo fails to recover in time, Casemiro may have to drop back into the heart of Madrid’s defense.

The rest of the team should remain the same from the side that started the first leg.

Paulo Dybala was sent off in the first leg and will miss out on Wednesday as a result, while Rodrigo Bentancur is also suspended due to an accumulation of bookings in the competition.

Juventus have Miralem Pjanic and Medhi Benatia available again after the duo missed the 3-0 first leg defeat through suspension and both will start here.

Mario Mandzukic, Juan Cuadrado, and Douglas Costa compete for two starting roles on the wing for Juventus, with Gonzalo Higuain set to lead the line once again after being rested on Saturday.

 

Bayern Munich vs Sevilla

Arturo Vidal and David Alaba have joined Manuel Neuer and Kingsley Coman on the sidelines for this match.

Robert Lewandowski was rested at the weekend and will return to the starting XI here, while the same is true of Mats Hummels, Javi Martinez, Thiago, Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery.

Lewandowski, Joshua Kimmich, Corentin Tolisso, Jerome Boateng and Sebastian Rudy are a booking away from a ban.

Éver Banega is available again after missing the first leg through suspension. He will slot back into midfield on Wednesday.

Simon Kjaer is a doubt after coming off in the first half of Sevilla’s 4-0 loss to Celta Vigo on Saturday and may not recover in time to feature here.

With Gabriel Mercado and Sébastien Corchia both doubts, Jesus Navas may have to continue at right-back here.

Sergio Escudero, Wissam Ben Yedder and Gabriel Mercado will miss the second leg if they are booked here.
