Real Madrid host Galatasaray in a very important Champions League game for Los Blancos, who managed to get the three points in Turkey two weeks ago. It hasn’t been a bright Champions League Group Stage for Zidane’s men, but a win for them tonight will very much increase their chances of making it into the next round of the European competition.

Vinicius Jr. has been left out of the squad list. The young winger has been in and out of the team’s list for most of the year and his role on this team isn’t all that clear anymore. With Bale and James still out recovering from their injuries, Rodrygo and Lucas Vazquez are competing for a spot on Real’s right wing.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Rodrygo, Hazard, Benzema.

Galatasaray predicted XI: Muslera; Mariano, Luyindama, Marcao, Nagatomo; N’Zonzi, Lemina, Belhanda, Feghouli; Babel, Andone

Real will need to be very careful because Galatasaray created some dangerous chances two weeks ago. Los Blancos must dominate and control the tempo of the game if they want to score three points.
