Viktoria Plzen vs Real Madrid Live

Real Madrid: Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale are likely to return for ‘Los Blancos’, having started on the bench during the club’s 1-2 home defeat to Levante at the weekend.

Jan Kopic will miss the clash (ankle injury), however Radim Reznik and Lukas Hejda are set to return for the Czech side. The duo featured in Plzeň’s 2-2 draw with Bohemians 1905 in the league and make our predicted lineup.

“The European Cup is a competition linked to the club’s long history and in which we have a lot of expectation. We have a lot of ambition, drive and enthusiasm and the opponents will force us to put in great performance to win the three points.

“Viktoria are a physical team, with quality players and tactically very organised. They don’t concede many goals and in the match against CSKA they had a phenomenal first half. We have to think about giving a great show from our team.

“We’re departing in a good mood and I hope to come back with the same atmosphere. It’s surely a great match for us, our expectations are big and we’ll see how it goes. Any slip-up they had now means nothing.

“It was very similar with Barcelona we played before, both teams are extremely strong at combination. We have to defend well and give them no time for final passes they are experts at.

I suppose some speculations let them calm, they are totally easy about it and they will want to shoot and enjoy the game.”

Lopetegui did not include Dani Ceballos on the squad list and it’s a shocking decision based on the role the midfielder has had this season, being one of Lopetegui’s favorite and most used players off the bench. Other than that.

Real Madrid lost to CSKA Moscow in the second game, so this is a must win for them if they want to lead the group and face more manageable opposition in the Round of 16.
