Team News

Real Madrid are struggling with some defensive problems as Eder Militao is suspended for the game and Ferland Mendy is still struggling with a calf injury. However, Luka Modric should be ready to go after overcoming a hamstring problem to feature in Sunday’s Copa del Rey win.

Kevin De Bruyne returned to Manchester City’s starting XI against Leeds to provide a timely support for Pep Guardiola, although Nathan Ake’s second-half replacement is a cause for concern during that encounter. The Dutch defender’s hamstring injury could rule him out.
