Luckily enough for Real Madrid, coach Santiago Solari will have some serious depth at his disposal in case Los Blancos need to turn things around late in the game. This is only the first leg of what’s expected to be a tough tie overall, so Madrid should focus on completing a solid performance while trying to score as many away goals as possible.
