What is the team news?
Real Madrid were given a scare this week after defender Sergio Ramos limped off during Spain’s Nations League clash with Germany.
Spain boss Luis Enrique played down the injury, saying: “We don’t believe the injuries are too serious or important.
“But it’s still an unpleasant moment for everyone. I feel bad for their clubs but this is how it is.”
What have they said?
Boss Zinedine Zidane, after Real’s 4-1 home defeat by Valencia just before the international break, said: “There’s no excuse for how we defended.
“After the first goal our heads dropped and our problems kept building. Right now we are not defending as well as we used to.
“I don’t think Valencia were better than us tactically today but I’m the one who needs to find solutions.”
