Real Madrid have named a weakened squad for their trip to face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey last 16 second leg.

They won the first leg 3-0 at home and now head to Andalusia to play at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. 

Cristiano Ronaldo is not travelling, while James Rodriguez is injured and will not play either. 

Zidane said: "James has a problem in the calf. We don’t want to risk it, but it’s a small thing. We have a lot of games to play and we’ll see how it evolves."

Lucas Vazquez is back, while Sergio Ramos is also included. Zidane added: "They're both in. Sergio, as captain, will be with us. And Lucas, too. He has no problem and will be with us."

REAL MADRID SQUAD:
Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.
Defenders: Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Coentrao and Danilo.
Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Kovacic, Asensio and Enzo.
