This is a Group B match up between Real Madrid of Spain’s La Liga and FC Copenhagen. Unfortunately for Copenhagen, getting a win in the Bernabéu will be difficult. Madrid is coming off a derby loss in La Liga to Atlético Madrid and will be looking for a win.
Madrid has been described as being in a bit of a crisis mode, but players are denying those reports.
“As ‘Cris’ said, we are all with the coach, and believe completely in him,” Sergio Ramos said, via ESPN FC. “[Carlo Ancelotti] has his part in the responsibility, as do the players. We are not influenced by anything negative outside. Nobody should invent or write negative stories, because the team is more united than ever, there is a good atmosphere in the dressing-room, everyone delighted with the coach, and the results will come.”

Madrid will also be without their huge acquisition, Gareth Bale.
“The player Gareth Bale did not train with the group because of a muscular problem in his left thigh,” the club said via a statement. “The diagnosis is dependent on tests to be carried tomorrow.”
