Real Madrid will try to bounce back from their disappointing 0-0 draw against Málaga last Saturday by earning all three points in their meeting against Malmo. Every match in this Group Stage could be crucial given that PSG and Madrid are set to battle for the top stop in the group, something that could be decisive on their quest for the European title.
Rafa Benítez could decide to rotate his squad ahead of Sunday's Derby against Atlético de Madrid. Players like Marcelo, Modric or Cristiano Ronaldo could need a break to be fresh when the Derby comes.
Varane and Nacho will be starting in the center of Real Madrid's defense and that could be problematic if Malmo create dangerous chances. Nacho completed a woeful performance against Málaga and he will need to be careful tonight if Madrid want to get the three points. Expect Real Madrid to win the match comfortably if they are able to complete a decent performance.
