Real Madrid travel to Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The Bundesliga side held Inter Milan to a 2-2 draw in the first group game at the Giuseppe Meazza and have gone four unbeaten in league play too.
By contrast, Zinedine Zidane’s side suffered a surprise 3-2 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk last time out in Europe and are bottom of the group.
They did, however, beat Barcelona in El Clasico at the weekend, so positivity should be restored in the squad.
