Real Madrid will be looking to begin their Champions League campaign on a positive note when they host Shakhtar Donetsk. After dominating the competition with three consecutive titles, Los Blancos have failed to go past the Round of 16 stage of the competition in the last two years. They come into this Champions League fixture on the back of a shock 1-0 defeat against Cadiz in LaLiga. Zinedine Zidane’s men are currently placed third in LaLiga, with 10 points from five games.

Shakhtar Donetsk on the other hand are unbeaten in five games but have made a slow start in the defence of their domestic title. The Ukrainian side are currently placed third in the league with 12 points from six games. Despite being unbeaten in five, they have won just two of their encounters, with their last game ending in a 5-1 home victory over Lviv.
