Real Madrid set

Real Madrid welcome RB Leipzig to the Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid find themselves second in Group F level with first-place Shakhtar Donetsk on three points – after claiming a 3-0 victory at Celtic on Matchday 1.

On the flip side, RB Leipzig sit third three points behind Real Madrid – after suffering a 4-1 home defeat to Shakhtar last week.

Los Blancos kicked off their campaign with an easy 3-0 win at Celtic Park, with Vinicius Junior, Luka Modric and Eden Hazard scoring after half-time.

Last time out, Real Madrid beat Mallorca 4-1. As a result, they have won each of their opening six games across all competitions this season.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are sitting pretty at the top of the La Liga table two points clear of Barcelona – after taking maximum points from their first five league outings this term.

Following that defeat, the club parted ways with Domenico Tedesco. Since then, Marco Rose has been appointed as their new manager.

Rose enjoyed a dream start to life at Leipzig, overseeing a 3-0 victory against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. It is worth noting that Dortmund failed to register a single shot on target.

Head-to-head: This is the first meeting between Real Madrid and RB Leipzig, meaning there are no previous results to assess for this fixture.

Team news: Real Madrid currently have three players sidelined through injury Alvaro Odriozola, Karim Benzema and Eder Militao.

As for Leipzig, they will be without the injured duo of Dani Olmo and Lukas Klostermann for the trip to the Spanish capital.

Despite Leipzig’s impressive start to life under Marco Rose, Real Madrid are expected to flex their muscles and cruise to victory on home soil.
