That is all from our live commentary tonight. This was Shaurya Vineet here taking you through all the live action from the Santiago Bernabeu. If you have any comments, suggestions or feedback, you can get in touch with me on Twitter @ShauryaVIneet.
Sevilla are running out of time here. We saw Arsenal come back from 3-0 down against Bournemouth last night but it was Bournemouth and this is Real Madrid. Jorge Sampaoli would be hoping of something similar.
Modric and James have been head and shoulders above any other player on the pitch. The latter probably playing for his Madrid future with speculation mounting on where he might be plying his trade next. Premier League has been touted as a potential destination for the Colombian.
It has been Madrid's half so far and while Sevilla have shown glimpses of promise in patches they have been let down by their poor finishing. The visitors need to step up big time if they are to come back into the game.
41' WHAT A SAVE or WHAT A MISS! Anyways, Vitolo makes a brilliant diagonal run and latches on to an over the top through ball before running towards the goal. His shot is abysmal at best, although not quite sure what he was attempting there. You cannot afford that. This profligacy is going to cost Sevilla heavily.
38' Sevilla could have been 3-0 down but somehow manage to recover. Madrid are playing some absolutely incredible free-flowing football. One is forced to wonder if that was possible with Cristiano Ronaldo on the pitch.
24' Sevilla have started to get a foothold of the game. They are going deep into Madrid's half and asking all the right questions. This time it is Vitolo who is fouled by Carvajal but the referee waves play on.
16' CHANCE! Modric with a scissor kick but it sails just wide. That was so so close to a second. It was Carvajal down the right-hand side who advances forward before crossing it into the middle of the box, the Croatian is there and he knows he cannot get the power behind the header so goes for the kick and boy, wasn't it close.
It was Casemiro who wins the ball with a crunching tackle on N'Zonzi before passing the ball to James. The Real Madrid #10 took a touch before unleashing a strike from the edge of the box into the bottom left corner of the goal. GAME ON!
2' MISS! It is all Real Madrid at the start and it is Modric who threads an inch perfect ball into the box. Morata gets on the end of it but cannot direct it goalwards. That was a real chance for Zidane's side.
Real Madrid are without some of their key players and it will be interesting to watch how they will cope in their absence. Will the decision to rest Cristiano Ronaldo come back to haunt Zinedine Zidane?
Zinedine Zidane's side will like to continue their unbeaten run in the season in all competitions while Sevilla will be looking to make a statement. A statement of intent that they are not pushovers and are serious contenders for the title.
The Seville outfit are currently third in the league only four points behind the league leaders and will be looking to make a statement by beating the Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the cup tie.
The two teams have crossed paths on 46 occasions so far with Real Madrid getting the better of the Seville outfit 31 times. Sevilla have managed to secure 12 wins while the remaining 3 games has seen the two teams share the spoils.
Real Madrid are without the services of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been allowed extended rest by Zinedine Zidane while Sergio Ramos, Lucas Vasquez, Pepe and Mateo Kovacic miss out due to injury. Kiko Casilla is expected to start in goal while James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata are also expected to feature.
Meanwhile, Sevilla are without Franco Vazquez, Termoulinas and Krohn-Dehli, who miss out due to various injuries.
Real Madrid are unbeaten so far in this season but they have only won 3 of their last 5 matches, drawing the other two games. Sevilla, on the other hand, have also won 3 out of their last 5 games, drawing one and losing another.
Real Madrid had an unbelievable 2016 and would like to start 2017 in the same way they ended the last one. Having lost only 2 games in the entire calendar year the momentum is surely with Zinedine Zidane's side. However, Jorge Sampaoli's side are no pushovers and are currently third in the La Liga only 4 points adrift of leaders - Real Madrid. Expect a feisty encounter between the two sides.
