FIRST HALF

The match at the Santiago Bernabeu started very dynamically. The debut goal opportunity in the match turned out to be the asset of the Germans. A perfect pass cut through the Kings’ defense and Christopher Nkunku burst into the penalty area, but Thibaut Courtois cleared his shot for a corner.

In the 11th minute, the visitors claimed a penalty after Nkunku went down in the penalty area following contact with a defender, but the worst penalty was not awarded.

Real got their act together. The Whites responded with an inaccurate shot from a small angle by Rodrigo in the 15th minute.

However, the visitors continued to be extremely dangerous. Timo Werner broke free from the defense in the 21st minute and played a pass to Forsberg, but the Swede missed the target.

A shot over the bar by Kamavinga followed.

In the 35th minute, it was the cleanest situation for RB Leipzig. Forsberg passed to Werner, who with one touch launched a parallel pass on the goal line, but Nkunku was inches short of tapping the ball into the empty net.

Real responded with Modric’s shot curling wide of the post in the 41st minute. Seconds later, the Croatian claimed a penalty after being tackled in the back by Schlager, but referee Maurizio Mariani saw no foul.

Thus, the break came with a goalless draw and no accurate shot by Real Madrid in the first half.

BEFORE THE MATCH

Real Madrid enter the match as favourites. Los Blancos took on Mallorca at the weekend. Carlo Ancelotti’s men overcame a one-goal deficit to make it 4-1. The Royals will be looking for a must win and another three points in the Champions League after beating Celtic 3-0 a week ago.

On the other side is RB Leipzig, who will be playing at the Santiago Bernabeu for the first time. The Bulls beat Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in their last Bundesliga game and are ready to fight to the very end for victory in Madrid.

Marco Rose and Carlo Ancelotti face many personnel problems. Karim Benzema, Eder Militao and Lucas Vazquez will miss the match for Madrid. Lucas Klostermann, Konrad Leimer and Dani Olmo will not be available for Leipzig.
