Real Madrid come into this game against the weakest team in the group; Ludogorets. Madrid’s Bulgarian opponents almost came away from Anfield with a draw however, so Madrid will need to be wary of a sucker punch from Ludogorets.
Real Madrid for their own part will take massive confidence from beating FC Basel 5-1 in their opening game, which not only confirms their dominance as favourites to win the group but also improves their goal difference for the latter stages of the group placings should they need it.
Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti and midfielder Isco discuss the opposition below. Kick-off in Sofia is at 19:45.
