Real Madrid visit APOEL without Sergio Ramos and it looks like Marco Asensio could be in the team’s starting lineup considering that he took part in the team’s pre-match press conference. Los Blancos would clinch a ticket to the Round of 16 with a win tonight.
APOEL: Nauzet Pérez; Vouros, Carlão, Rueda, Lago; Nuno Morais, Vinicius; Zahid, Ebecilio, Aloneftis; Poté.
Out: Milanov (knee), Waterman (shoulder).
Doubtful: Bertoglio (thigh).
Misses next match if booked: Ebecilio, Sallai.
Real Madrid: Casilla; Nacho, Varane, Vallejo, Marcelo; Kroos, Casemiro, Modrić, Asensio; Benzema, Ronaldo.
Out: Ramos (nose), Bale (calf), Navas (adductor), Kovačić (adductors).
Misses next match if booked: Carvajal.
It will be interesting to see if Zidane decides to rotate his squad for this match or if he waits some more days and then gives most of his reserves a chance of playing against the struggling Malaga at the Bernabeu next Saturday, an option that would also make a lot of sense.
