Sheriff vs Real Madrid: Team news & key stats

No Gareth Bale, Dani Ceballos and Federrico Valverde for Real Madrid. Eden Hazard is also doubtful with an illness, but it's no surprise that Ancelotti will continue with Vinicius Jr and Marco Asensio on the wide areas with Karim Benzema in front.

Sheriff forwards Lovro Bizjak and Momo Yansane are injured and doubtful respectively. Coach Yuriy Vernydub will look to use the flanks with the man who scored the 89th minute winner at Bernabeu - Sebastien Thill - expected to be involved again.

Key Stats:

  • Sheriff Tiraspol won 2-1 in their only previous meeting with Real Madrid in European competition (on MD2 of this season’s UEFA Champions League). The Moldovan side could become the fourth team to win their first two meetings with Real Madrid in European competition, after Liverpool (1981, 2009), Galatasaray (2000, 2001) and Benfica (1962, 1965).
  • Real Madrid will be looking to record three consecutive wins in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since the 2018-19 campaign, when they won their 3rd, 4th and 5th group games in that season’s tournament; a pattern they could repeat with victory here.
  • No team have scored more headed goals than Sheriff Tiraspol through the opening four matchdays in the UEFA Champions League this season (3), with exactly half of their goals in the competition coming via headers (3/6).
  • Real Madrid winger Vinícius Júnior has carried the ball further than any other player in the UEFA Champions League this season (1,277 metres). In addition, no player has generated more shots than the Brazilian from carries (11 – seven shots and four chances created), which are defined as moving 5+ metres in possession of the ball.
