Real Madrid hold the second spot in the group with six points from two wins and a loss. In the previous round, they defeated Plzen and their only loss was against CSKA Moscow by the minimal result. The past few weeks have been turbulent for the club as coach Julen Lopetegui was fired and while they look for a proper replacement, Santiago Solari while take the steering wheel. They are lacking in all the competitions and are placed at the middle of the table in their domestic league. Out of their previous five away matches, they have recorded four losses and a single win. It seems as the players lack the motivation after a couple of incredibly successful years.
Plzen: Hruška; Řezník, Hejda, Hubník, Limberský; Procházka, Hrošovský; Havel, Čermák, Kopic; Řezníček
Real Madrid: Navas; Odriozola, Nacho, Ramos, Reguilón; Kroos, Casemiro, Modrić; Isco, Benzema, Bale
