Real Madrid thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk in their first meeting in the Champions League last month.

Vinicius Júnior scored twice to lead Los Blancos to a 5-0 win in Kiev. Rodrygo and Karim Benzema also scored while Serhiy Kryvtsov had an own goal for the hosts.

Real Madrid are currently ranked second in Group D with six points from three games while Shakhtar are at the bottom with just one point.

Real Madrid are coming off a 2-1 win over Elche in their last game in La Liga. Vinicius Júnior scored twice in that game. Carlo Ancelotti's side have not lost in their last four games in all competitions.

Mariano Díaz, Federico Valverde, Dani Ceballos and Gareth Bale will not feature here due to injuries. Rodrygo's condition will be assessed after he suffered a hamstring strain in their last game. Benzema is also unsure after he missed out against Elche due to a foot problem.

Shakhtar recorded a 4-1 win over Desna in the Ukrainian Premier League. Manor Solomon, Georgiy Sudakov, Tetê and Fernando scored to lead Roberto De Zerbi's side to their third straight win in all competitions.

Yevgen Konoplyanka, Pedrinho and Lassina Traoré are among those who will not feature for Shakhtar in this game.

Verdict

Expect Real Madrid to win this game.
