Team News

Real Madrid
In a huge boost for Zidane, the Real manager should be able to welcome captain Sergio Ramos back from injury for this crunch match, and the veteran could slot right in at centre-back in place of Nacho Fernandez.

However, Eden Hazard remains on the treatment table alongside Dani Carvajal, with Lucas Vazquez deputising for the latter recently, although Vazquez may now find his spot under threat from the returning Alvaro Odriozola.

Martin Odegaard could also make his return to the Blancos midfield for this six-pointer, with Marco Asensio also pushing for a start in Zidane's front three.
Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Vazquez, Varane, Ramos, Mendy; Casemiro, Kroos, Odegaard; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius
Real Madrid Champions League form: LDWWL
Real Madrid form (all competitions): LDWLLW

As for Monchengladbach, the visitors may have to make do without two centre-backs in Nico Elvedi and Tony Jantschke again, meaning that Christoph Kramer could be forced to fill in defence once more.

Ramy Bensebaini is also yet to make his return from a positive coronavirus diagnosis, but Thuram is sure to come back into the team after being named on the bench for the draw with Freiburg.
Borussia Monchengladbach possible starting lineup:
Sommer; Lainer, Ginter, Kramer, Wendt; Zakaria, Neuhaus; Lazaro, Stindl, Thuram; Plea
Borussia Monchengladbach Champions League form: DDWWL
Borussia Monchengladbach form (all competitions): LDWWLD

Prediction: Real Madrid 3-2 Borussia Monchengladbach
