Real Madrid Team News vs Sheriff Tiraspol: Kroos, Marcelo, Hazard

Share

After a surprise 0-0 draw in La Liga action against Villareal, Madrid will be looking to get back on the winner’s sheet as they face Moldovan-side Sheriff Tiraspol.

It could be a bad day for the Moldovans as they have only won two European away clashes (including qualifying) in their entire history, whereas Madrid have failed to score in only one of their last 37 group stage matches in the Champions League.

Form Guide (All Competitions): Real Madrid (WWWWD) 

Madrid is currently in the midst of an injury crisis, with several first-team players out at the moment. 

Not that it has slowed them down so far this season, as they remain undefeated in both La Liga and the Champions League. 

The likes of Gareth Bale, Ferland Mendy, Dani Carvajal, and Dani Ceballos will all definitely miss out through injury, while Brazilian left-back Marcelo is doubtful as he continues his return from injury. 

There is good news, however, as German midfielder Toni Kroos is in contention to play his first game of the second Ancelotti tenure at the Bernabeu.

What is exciting for fans of Los Blancos right now is the gradual return to form of Eden Hazard. Ancelotti sent a message to Hazard in the first matchday, leaving him on the bench for the victory over Inter.

It seems the former Chelsea star has reacted well to Ancelotti’s tough love, as his form has improved since. One of the biggest tasks Ancelotti has ahead of him this season is seeing whether he can get a tune out of the enigmatic Belgian.

This game should not be a problem at all for Real Madrid.

If they don’t record a comfortable win against these Champions League minnows, hard questions will surely be asked.
