This is a monumental game for Los Blancos, who will try to bounce back from their last two results in La Liga, where they dropped points against Celta de Vigo and Levante, losing their lead in the table in the process. Real Madrid will need to be solid defensively and a clean sheet would be crucial for the return leg in two weeks time.
