Real Madrid are looking to clinch a spot in this Champions League Semifinals after drawing what should be a manageable Wolfsburg team. Los Blancos just managed to beat Barcelona at the Camp Nou even down to 10 men, so they built enough momentum to try to steal this first leg from Wolfsburg.

Wolfsburg Projected XI: Casteels, Trasch, Knoche, Dante, Rodriguez, Luiz Gustavo, Guilavogui, Schurrle, Arnold, Draxler, Kruse.

Real Madrid Projected XI: Navas, Danilo, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Zinedine Zidane will almost definitely start the same team that got the 1-2 win at the Camp Nou but with Danilo as the right-back instead of Carvajal, if the latest reports coming from Spain are accurate. Isco and James will have to wait for their chance on the bench but they will be able to change the game during the second half if needed.

It will be extremely important for Madrid to score as many away goals as possible.
