Team News

Borussia Monchengladbach
Gladbach will again be without the services of Andreas Poulsen, Denis Zakaria and Laszlo Benes through injury, while Mamadou Doucoure is also a doubt due to a muscular issue.
Valentino Lazaro is back in training after recovering from a calf problem, but the on-loan Inter attacker has not played since the end of August due to a calf problem.
Marcus Thuram, Alassane Plea, Jonas Hofmann and Florian Neuhaus were all left out of the starting XI against Mainz at the weekend but should return to the side for this game.
Borussia Monchengladbach possible starting lineup:
Sommer; Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini; Kramer, Neuhaus; Hofmann, Embolo, Thuram; Plea
Borussia Monchengladbach Champions League form: LWDDLD
Borussia Monchengladbach form (all competitions): LDWDDW

Real Madrid
As for Madrid, the big news surrounds Eden Hazard, who has been named in the travelling party for the contest despite recently being on the sidelines with a muscular problem. The Belgian was not expected to return until the end of next month but could now feature against Gladbach.

Dani Carvajal, Martin Odegaard, Mariano Diaz and Alvaro Odriozola have all been left out of the squad, while Nacho has also not been included due to the knock that he picked up against Barca, meaning that Lucas Vazquez is expected to start at right-back.

Zidane is expected to stick with the majority of the XI that started against Barca, meaning that Modric might have to accept a spot on the bench once again, with Federico Valverde continuing in midfield.

The Madrid boss could potentially rest players in next weekend's league game with Huesca, but the importance of Tuesday's contest means that the likes of Karim Benzema, Casemiro, Ramos and Raphael Varane should all be in the starting XI.

Luka Jovic, Rodrygo Goes and Isco are all options for change in the final third of the field, but Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior should keep their spots.
Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Vazquez, Varane, Ramos, Mendy; Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos; Vinicius, Benzema, Asensio
Real Madrid Champions League form: WDWLLL
Real Madrid form (all competitions): WWWLLW

Prediction: Borussia Monchengladbach 1-2 Real Madrid
