Real Madrid

Last updated: Wed 19 September 2018 11:26
In Brief

Real Madrid do not have any suspensions. Real Madrid do not have any injuries.

Looking Back

Real Madrid had won their first three matches of the LaLiga season, but they were then held to a 1-1 draw when they went to Bilbao to take on Athletic Club on Saturday night.

Looking Ahead

No Real Madrid players are suspended for this midweek match.

No Real Madrid players are injured for this midweek match.

Points of Interest

The goalkeeping position remains an area of debate for Real Madrid, with Thibaut Courtois having started the past two matches but with Keylor Navas having won the past three Champions Leagues and still in contention for minutes.

Roma

Last updated: Wed 19 September 2018 11:26
In Brief

Squandered a 2-goal lead at home to Chievo Verona: held to a 2-2 draw. No wins in last 3. In need of a reaction against Real Madrid on the road. Pastore still out. Fuzato and Bianda ineligible. Coric and Luca Pellegrini not selected.

Looking Back

At home to Chievo Verona, Roma adopted a hyper-aggressive attitude right from the start and they even managed to take an early lead. Having scored also a second goal, they suddenly slowed their rhythm down. In the second half, they conceded once and they tried to freeze the game with some ball possession. However, in the long run they had to concede again and even risked losing at the very last assault.

Florenzi played an excellent game both at the back and attacking. Cristante also offered a positive performance, also scoring his first goal for the Wolves. El Shaarawy also scored and was the most dangerous forwards for Roma. Olsen proved decisive with his last-minute save. Kolarov made a mistake which cost them Chievo Verona second goal. N'Zonzi also had a part in such disastrous defending.

Looking Ahead

Having failed to win any of the last 3 games played, Roma are next expected by an extremely difficult trip to Real Madrid in the first round of the Champions League Group stage.

Bianda and Fuzato are ineligile in the competition.

Pastore sat the last game out due to a muscular problem and he is still unavailable. Coric and Luca Pellegrini also failed to make the 21-man squad.

Cristante is contending with Zaniolo for a place in the midfield. In the attack, Kluivert and El Shaarawy could represent alternatives to Under and Perotti.

Points of Interest

Roma have already travelled to Real Madrid in Champions League 5 times. They drew once, 2-2 in October 2001, and won twice, 1-0 in October 2002 and 2-1 in March 2008. On the other hand, they lost twice, 4-2 in September 2004 and 2-0 in March 2016.
