Real Madrid need to beat Borussia Dortmund if they want to win their group and play the return leg of the upcoming Round of 16 at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, good teams like PSG, Bayern or Manchester City have finished second in their group, meaning that they could potentially face Madrid in the next round if Los Blancos end up beating Dortmund. Will Zidane settle for a draw and wait for teams like Arsenal, Leicester, Monaco, Juventus or Napoli in the next round? Would it be wise to do so?
