Our prediction for this Champions League match:
A spot in the Champions League knockout stages will be at stake when Real Madrid and Borussia M’gladbach face each other at Alfredo di Stefano Stadium on Wednesday evening. Los Blancos suffered a shocking 2-0 loss to Shakhtar Donetsk in their last group game, but they could book their place in the last 16 even with a point from the Borussia M’gladbach clash. Zinedine Zidane’s troops are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the decider.
The good news for the hosts is that Sergio Ramos should recover in time to face die Fohlen. Eden Hazard remains in the recovery room, while Dani Carvajal is rated doubtful. Borussia M’gladbach, on the other hand, are one point away from securing their place in the knockout stages of the elite competition. Since both teams could be happy with one point from Wednesday’s showdown, share of spoils is on the cards.
