Can Real Madrid make another statement but this time in the Champions League? Los Blancos managed to beat Barcelona at the Camp Nou but they have to complete those kinds of performances in the European competition as well if they want to win a title this season, given how hard it will to overcome Barcelona's lead in La Liga's standings.

Wolfsburg Projected XI: Benaglio; Vieirinha, Naldo, Dante, Ricardo Rodríguez; Luiz Gustavo, Guilavogui, Bruno Henrique, Arnold, Draxler; Schurrle.

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

Zidane has decided to start the same team (but Danilo instead of Carvajal) that won at the Camp Nou, meaning that he will most likely use the weekend's Liga game to make the rotations needed to keep his players fresh. It will be important for Madrid to avoid injuries if they want to win the European cup now that they have an established starting lineup.
