Last weekend was one that every Real Madrid fan would enjoy most since the 2020/21 campaign began, however they will be hoping their side can make it back-to-back away wins when they face Borussia Mönchengladbach on Tuesday.
Madrid beat fierce rivals Barcelona on Saturday at the Nou Camp having endured losses in their previous two games before the clash.
Zinedine Zidane’s side are now looking to record their first win of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League season following their 2-3 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk on matchday 1 last week.
Mönchengladbach on the other hand come into this game on the back of a 3-2 win over Mainz 05 in the German Bundesliga last weekend.
The German side also started their Champions League campaign on quite a good note securing a point away from home against Inter Milan with a 2-2 scoreline.
Marco Rose’s men will be in a confident mood considering how good they have played in their last few games and will look to cause harm to Zidane’s team.
