Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos are among the stars left out of Real Madrid’s squad for the European Super Cup against Sevilla on Tuesday.

Suspicions about Bale’s absence have been confirmed, while Kroos has also been rested after he too did not resume training with Madrid until Saturday.

Pepe has also been omitted for similar reasons as the aforementioned duo, leaving Sergio Ramos free to partner Raphael Varane in central defence and Karim Benzema to spearhead Los Blancos’ attack.

Finally, Castilla trio Marcos Llorente, Mariano and Luca Zidane – son of Coach Zinedine – have been rewarded for the positive impressions they made in preseason.

The match will be played in Trondheim, Norway and kick off at 19:45 BST – and Football Espana will be bringing it to you LIVE!

Madrid squad to face Sevilla: Casilla, Yanez, Luca; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Danilo, Marcelo; James, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric, Isco, Asensio, Llorente; Benzema, Vazquez, Morata, Mariano
