Real Madrid are leading Wolfsburg 2-0 at half-time after a brace scored by Cristiano Ronaldo. Zidane's men started the game with intensity and they earned that lead in the first 20 minutes, although their control of the game disappeared shortly after the second goal was scored.

Wolfsburg then started creating some chances and having the possession of the ball more often, even after Julian Draxler had to be taken off the match with an injury.

Real Madrid still need to improve a lot if they want to score four goals and avoid trouble tonight, because Wolfsburg are going to have scoring chances if they keep playing this way.

Players like Jesé, Isco and James are waiting for an opportunity on the bench if Zidane sees them ready to perform and change the course of the game, but it's true that the French manager has every reason to be patient with his substitutions if the game stays 2-0, because the match would be heading to extra-time.
