Real complete their Champions League group stage at home to Borussia Dortmund tonight with qualification for the last 16 of the competition already secure. Nevertheless, Real's prestige means they are always obliged to win this type of games, particularly at the moment. Their performance has been shaky right from the start. And just like it happened in their prior meeting during the current group stage, we could see both sides scoring once again. He was without the carbon fibre face protection, and was outmanoeuvred by the nippy Christian Pulisic on a few occasions.
Los Blancos already clinched a knockout stage berth, but they need to win - and wait for Tottenham's result against APOEL - if they want to top the group.
Madrid was in control throughout the match on Wednesday, but Dortmund threatened in counterattacks with its speedy forwards. "He is excellent and has the quality to play for Real Madrid, but I hope he stayshere".
Real Madrid: Keylor Navas 5, Sergio Ramos 5, Raphael Varane 4, Fernandez Nacho 5, Theo Hernandez 6, Carlos Casemiro 6, Lucas Vazquez 6, Isco 7, Mateo Kovacic 6, Cristiano Ronaldo 6, Borja Mayoral 6. Earlier this year he became the player with the most penalty kick goals in Champions League history, with 12, one more than Lionel Messi. The game is definitely set to be a thriller. Gareth Bale, who recently made a comeback against Fuenlabrada will not feature, as confirmed by club manager Zinedine Zidane. As for Dortmund, Mahmoud Dahoud gets a surprise start but given the injuries maybe it's not. Yet he faded from the match quickly, and a momentary lapse of concentration allowed Marcel Schmelzer to nab the ball and cross for Dortmund's opening goal.
Since 1998, the two sides have played each other 14 times. The rest ended as draws.
There's something about playing in Europe that makes Ronaldo come alive and there are suggestions he could break his goalscoring record in the competition. Just last season he had a phenomenal campaign. Los Colchoneros are ranked No. 2 in UEFA's club coefficients, a rating score based on the previous five seasons of European play.
In a sense, this match mattered more to BVB than to Madrid.

Mignolet: Salah is very important for us
Winks has a lot to learn and flatters to deceive in my opinion in terms of his impact on a game compared to Mousa Dembele. In the 60th minute, Chelsea almost took the lead off a counter but Zappacosta's dangerous low cross evaded everybody.
