Real Madrid face Roma in what will be a crucial game for the fate of their group in the Champions League. Los Blancos managed to beat the Italian side when they first met at the Santiago Bernabeu, but their loss to CSKA in Moscow means these two teams are tied. An away win for Madrid would almost secure the first place for Solari’s men.

The Argentinian coach has recovered key players like Varane and Carvajal yet Los Blancos completed a very discouraging performance last Saturday, when they lost 3-0 in Eibar, wasting a good chance to cut Barcelona’s lead in the table. It will be interesting to see if Isco finally gets the chance to start.
