Real Madrid will look to build on their El Clasico win when they travel to Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League on Tuesday at 8pm.
Los Blancos pulled off a 3-1 victory over Barcelona at the Camp Nou on Saturday, with goals from Federico Valverde, Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric enough to seal the three points.
That ended a two-game losing streak for Zinedine Zidane’s men, who fell 1-0 and 3-2 respectively to Cadiz and Shakhtar Donetsk prior to beating their fierce rivals.
Gladbach, meanwhile, have lost just one of their five Bundesliga matches so far this season, while they were incredibly unlucky not to win away at Inter Milan in their Champions League opener, with Romelu Lukaku’s late equaliser denying Marco Rose’s men all three points.

Gladbach & Real Madrid’s previous line-ups:
- Gladbach (vs Mainz): Sommer; Ginter, Elvedi, Jantschke; Lainer, Reitz, Stindl, Kramer, Wendt; Herrmann, Embolo.
- Real Madrid (vs Barcelona): Courtois; Nacho*, Varane, Ramos, Mendy; Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius Jr.
Andreas Poulsen, Laszlo Benes and Denis Zakaria will all be missing for the visit of Real Madrid through injury, while Valentino Lazaro and Mamadou Doucoure are both doubts for Gladbach.
Nacho, Dani Carvajal and Alvaro Odriozola are all injured, meaning Lucas Vazquez is likely to start at right-back. Eden Hazard has travelled but remains a fitness doubt.
Players to watch:
- Gladbach: Few players lit up the San Siro more than Florian Neuhaus during Gladbach’s group stage opener against Inter. The 23-year-old German midfielder is a supreme talent with the ball at his feet, and his through-ball to set Jonas Hofmann away for Gladbach’s second goal that night was a perfect illustration of his abilities. Neuhaus boasts a very healthy 86.57% pass completion rate in the Bundesliga this season and his control in possession will be key to Gladbach taking the sting out of the visitors’ approach.
Finally got to see the Florian Neuhaus pass from last night. This guy was one of my favourite players from the Bundesliga's return earlier this year. Incredible vision/passing range and so safe on the ball 🇩🇪⚽
He's only 23 too, big future in the gamepic.twitter.com/z5qO6bPJS1

- Real Madrid: From one midfielder to another, Toni Kroos was the unsung hero of Los Blancos’ Clasico win. The 30-year-old completed 67 passes at an incredible 94% accuracy rate, while no Real Madrid player had more touches of the ball (89) throughout the 90 minutes. Furthermore, Kroos created five chances and made a match-high four tackles. On both sides of the ball, the former Bayern Munich man completely dominated and he’ll need to bring his A-game once again to stifle Gladbach’s midfield on Tuesday.
Toni Kroos created more chances than any other player on the pitch against Barcelona and no player made more tackles.
