Real Madrid visit the Arena CSKA in Moscow for the second game of the Champions League Group Stage. Los Blancos earned a solid and convincing win against Roma in the opening game but this time some key starters won’t be available, so Julen Lopetegui will need his reserves to step up and prove they belong.

Real Madrid predicted XI:
Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Vallejo, Nacho; Casemiro, Kroos, Modrić; Asensio, Benzema, Mariano
Out: Marcelo (calf), Isco (appendicitis), Bale (adductor), Ramos (rested)

CSKA Moscow predicted XI:
Akinfeev; Fernandes, Becão, Chernov, Nababkin; Bijol, Akhmetov; Vlašić, Dzagoev, Oblyakov; Chalov
Out: Abel Hernández (hamstring), Bistrović (ankle), Makarov (knee), Vasin (knee)
Doubtful: Khosonov (foot), Kuchaev (knee), Magnússon (hamstring)

Los Blancos are the favorites to win this game, that’s for sure, although they will still have to perform well if they want to earn to three points at Moscow. Madrid need to bounce back after their tough week against Sevilla and Atletico Madrid and this seems to be the right game to do it.
