Zinedine Zidane has named a 21-man squad for the trip to face Shakhtar Donetsk in Kyiv and the most notable aspect is the return of Karim Benzema, who has missed Madrid’s last three fixtures due to a muscle injury sustained against Valencia on 8 November. The French striker’s return will be a big boost for Los Blancos ahead of this crucial European clash, which will be followed by back-to-back crunch ties with Sevilla and Atlético Madrid in LaLiga. Carvajal, Ramos, Jovic, Valverde, and Hazard all miss out through injury.

What is the team news?

Eden Hazard is a big doubt for the game after picking up an injury in Real Madrid’s clash with Alaves at the weekend. Captain Sergio Ramos will also still be out with a hamstring problem. Karim Benzema could return to the side after picking up a groin problem in the 4-1 loss to Valencia a few weeks ago. Dani Carvajal is still on the sidelines with a thigh problem while Alvaro Odriozola remains doubtful thanks to a calf strain.

Storylines

Real Madrid: Real can advance to the Round of 16 with a victory here, and they potentially could jump into first place depending on how Gladbach vs. Inter Milan turns out. But in the event Real loses, they could be facing elimination on Matchday six and would have lost the head-to-head tiebreaker in that scenario after already losing to Shakhtar earlier in the competition. For Real, they enter the game in poor form after a shocking home loss to Deportivo Alaves on Saturday. Those slow starts can’t be afforded in a match like this one.

Shakhtar Donetsk: A loss will eliminate Shakhtar from contention for a spot in the Round of 16, but they’ll be boosted by the fact they already beat Los Blancos in this competition. Shakhtar is going to need to be sharper in attack as they are lucky to even be in contention with just three goals scored in four games. In fact, Real Madrid is the only team Shakhtar has scored against in the group stage so far. With Real not in top form, there is an opportunity here, but they will need to take a page out of Alaves’ book and exploit the Spanish side by countering down the wings to create numerous chances.

SHAKHTAR DONETSK VS REAL MADRID PREDICTION

Victory here for Real Madrid against Shakhtar Donetsk will guarantee ‘Los Blancos’ a place in the UEFA Champions League knockout stage with the hosts currently three points behind the Spaniards in Group B. Zinedine Zidane’s men started to look more like a Madrid side that their fans would expect to see on Matchday 4, after beating Internazionale 0-2 at the San Siro. With key man Eden Hazard back in the fold and back on the scoresheet, Real Madrid comes into this match confident and looking for revenge after being beaten 2-3 by Shakhtar on Matchday 1. The Ukrainians have not scored in the group stage since that encounter and the visitors will be confident of not just securing victory here, but also a second successive Group B clean sheet as they ensure their safe passage to the knockout stage.

Don’t look now, but Spurs are top of the league and are actually looking good value for it. José Mourinho, freed from the pressures of winning, is back to winning again. To borrow a line from the Second Captains, “he’s like the fur coat you hung on to and waited to come back into fashion, and suddenly it’s a nuclear winter”. Then again, Mourinho’s Spurs could barely buy a win last winter. Opinions, fortunes, and narratives can change very quickly in football, as Lampard alluded to in his pre-match presser as well. That’s not to say that Spurs’ results are fake as if they were Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk preseason. It may only match 10 of 38, but they have the best defensive record in the league, the second-best attack in the league, and they have excellent momentum, having already beaten us once, albeit in a penalty shootout, in the League Cup fourth round. That loss was Lampard’s first-ever against Mourinho in four tries, arriving on the heels of SuperFrank becoming the first manager to ever do the league double over The Special One. The Special One?

Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk has been one of the hottest teams in the league since the season returned in June. The Red Devils have won four games by three goals — including their last time out against Aston Villa — and just alone draw against Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk in the first match back blemishes what otherwise would be a perfect record since their return. The Red Devils currently sit at fifth place in the standings with a record of 16-8-10 and 58 points. But while Southampton is 13-16-5 this year, they aren’t going to be a pushover by any means. The Saints have lost just one game since the season came back and have won three and finished another in a draw. Twice, Southampton has scored three goals in a match.
