Neither Real Madrid nor Wolfsburg will be able to make any excuses if they are knocked out of the Champions League tomorrow, as both Zinedine Zidane and Dieter Hecking will have a deep roster at their disposal.
Only defender Sebastian Jung will miss the game with a knee injury, while midfielder Daniel Caligiuri is still questionable with groin problems. Karim Benzema and Raphaël Varane were questionable days ago but they have recovered in time to play and they should be capable of featuring the whole match, although Zidane could possibly decide to keep the French defender on the bench in order to start Sergio Ramos and Pepe.
"We have to score, but we have 90 minutes to do so. We need to be patient," said Zidane about the game. Madrid will need to find the right balance between playing with intensity and a sense of desperation but without anxiety, as their overall performance could be affected by that. If Wolfsburg score, Zidane's men will need four goals.
Sebastian Jung will miss the game and Daniel Caligiuri is questionable.
Miss next match if booked
Casemiro, Danilo and Sergio Ramos will miss the first leg of the Semifinals if they see a yellow card against Wolfsburg.
Arnold, Benaglio, Caligiuri, Vierinha and Luiz Gustavo are in danger of missing the first leg of the Semifinals as well.
