Real will try to pay CSKA back

The situation with CSKA in the group resembles that of another Russian club, Lokomotiv.

Last place in the table, the equality of points with Victoria Plzen and the need to score points in Madrid. Though, the victory over Real Madrid does not guarantee access to the Europa League – if the Czech team triumphs over Roma, they will take third place.

CSKA attained a single victory – over Los Blancos. This defeat was the only one in the group for Real Madrid. And in the first meeting between the rivals one of the two goals, which the Spanish team missed in the group stage,  was scored.

Prediction: 3:0

Possible line-ups:

Real Madrid: Navas; Odriozola, Vallejo, Sánchez, Carvajal; Valverde, Llorente, Isco, Ceballos; Asensio, Vinicius

CSKA Moscow: Akinfeev; Nababkin, Becao, Magnusson; Fernandes, Bistrovic, Vlasic, Shchennikov; Zhamaletdinov, Sigurdsson, Chalov
