Real Madrid make the trip to Mönchengladbach on Tuesday to square off against Borussia Mönchengladbach for UEFA Champions League Matchday 2 encounter.
It is absolutely essential for Zidane’s side to win ahead of their clash with Inter Milan. Real Madrid suffered a rather shocking defeat at the hands of Shakhtar on Matchday 1 and this result has spiced up an already tough Group B.
The Whites will be without the services of Dani Carvajal, Martin Odegaard and Eden Hazard. Apart from the injured trio, Zidane has a full-strength squad at his disposal. Considering the importance this fixture carries for Real Madrid, they are expected to field a full-strength line-up without too many experiments. Here’s how Real could take to the field at the Borussia Park:
Thibaut Courtois is expected to take charge of things when Real Madrid make the trip to Germany. The Belgian has been in fine touch lately and Zidane will be wanting him to build on his good form. Odriozola, who has seemingly recovered from his injury, is expected to get the nod for this fixture ahead of Nacho.
Varane and Ramos will take charge of things in the heart of Real Madrid’s defence. The duo showed their impact on the side when they took the field against FC Barcelona at the Camp Nou. Marcelo is expected to return to the starting eleven after starting from the bench last time around.
Luka Modric will be starting in midfield after the Croatian has displayed some fine goal scoring form in the past two fixtures. The ever reliant Casemiro will retain his place in the starting eleven considering the fact that the Whites have no option but to return to Madrid with all three points in the bag. Toni Kroos will be pairing up with Casemiro and Modric in midfield. This trio has run havoc on teams across Europe and this is exactly what Zidane would be looking for when they take the field at the Borussia Park in Mönchengladbach.
Marco Asensio is likely to retain his spot in the starting eleven after a shining performance against the Cules in La Liga. It’s a huge area of concern for Zizou that Karim Benzema has not really struck goal scoring form and it will have to be addressed sooner rather than later. Nevertheless, the lanky striker will get the nod ahead of a rather inexperienced Luka Jovic who disappointed last time around. Rodrygo is expected to grab the last available position in the eleven ahead of Vinicius Jr, who had a rather pale evening in Catalonia.
