Huge game for Real Madrid as Zinedine Zidane’s men visit APOEL —20:45 CET— hoping to clinch a spot in the Champions League Round of 16 with a win. Los Blancos will be without Sergio Ramos, who is recovering from a broken nose.
It will be extremely important for Real Madrid to prove that they can still be a good offensive team. Neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Karim Benzema have been efficient in front of goal and they need to perform much better if Madrid want to have a chance at winning a title this season.
APOEL are a much weaker team than Real Madrid so Los Blancos should dominate and try to gain some momentum after the tough start to the 2017-2018 season. A win might not be enough for them at this stage as they also need to make a statement and prove that they are the same team that dismantled Barcelona and Manchester United last August.
