Real Madrid visit Sporting Braga just a handful of days ahead of a crucial Clasico against Barcelona in La Liga. Los Blancos are leading their group having secured wins against Union Berlin and Napoli, so their current three-point advantage gives Ancelotti’s men some comfort while facing tonight’s game.
Ancelotti could in fact make some rotations so that some of his regulars stay fresh for El Clasico. That means players like Vazquez, Fran Garcia, Nacho or Joselu could feature in the starting lineup, while Luka Modric is also expected to start.
Earning another away win tonight would all but clinch the team’s presence in the next round of the competition, given that Real Madrid will host two home games in the second half of this group stage.
Can Real Madrid bounce back from the 1-1 draw in Sevilla and gain some confidence and momentum ahead of Saturday’s El Clasico?
