Borussia Dortmund VS Real Madrid
Wednesday (26/09/2017)
19:45 (WAT)
Zinedine Zidane’s side come into the game on the back of a win over Alaves in the league yesterday.

Two goals from Dani Ceballos on his first league start for Los Blancos gave them a much-needed win after a home defeat to Real Betis.

The victory moved them up into fourth place in La Liga, but they still trail bitter rivals Barcelona by seven points.

Now they turn their attention to the Champions League with a trip to Dortmund on Tuesday.
