Real Madrid visit Shakhtar in what will be a crucial game for Los Blancos. Madrid have struggled on their last three games and need to find their groove quite desperately, given that they will visit Barcelona in the first El Clasico of the season next Sunday.
Los Blancos have had time to regroup during this FIFA break, and even more so after LaLiga decided to postpone their match against Athletic Bilbao, which should’ve been played last weekend. It’s time for Real Madrid to put their issues behind and prove that they can complete solid performances while earning the three points.
Shakhtar have struggled so far this Champions League but visiting Ukraine is never easy. Ancelotti’s men will need to show improvements on defense if they want to get the win and prove that they can compete for trophies this year, something which appeared likely early this season but is more questionable given how poorly the team has defended recently.
