Real Madrid host CSKA Moscow, the only team capable of beating them in this Champions League Group Stage. Los Blancos have done their homework and they secured the first place in the group with a solid away win in Roma, so they just have to stay healthy in this game and reserves like Vinicius or Valverde could get a chance to feature in the starting lineup.
CSKA will surely try their best to score some points today though, as they are still competing with Viktoria Plzen for a spot in the UEFA Europa League, which is a good consolation prize for both clubs.
Real Madrid will host Rayo Vallecano this weekend in what should be another manageable game for them, so perhaps Solari will decide to make some rotations here and there in order to keep everyone involved and sharp ahead of the upcoming FIFA Club World Cup, which will be played later this month.
