What is the team news?
Eden Hazard will again miss out for Real Madrid following injury set backs this season.
His Belgium team-mate, Thomas Vermaelen, defended the playmaker.
Vermaelen told Goal.com: "Firstly, everybody is very quick to say that he's got an injury – that he's injury-prone and that kind of stuff. I think he had a knock on his ankle and that's not his fault. It must be a muscle injury. I don't think it's too bad.
"For me personally he's a world-class player. I played against him in England.
"He will come back. He's very positive. When he comes back and starts playing the game you'll see the best of him. I'm not worried about him. He'll come back."
What have they said?
Real boss Zinedine Zidane, after guiding Real to the Champions League knockout stage this week: "'I want to enjoy and I don't know how long I'm going to stay here.
"I just think about how lucky I am to be here but I do not know until when!
"There are many years left in Madrid and I want to continue."
