Real Madrid will host Shakhtar Donetsk in a UEFA Champions League fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night. With two wins from as many games, the hosts are currently occupying top spot in Group F, while Shakhtar Donetsk are sitting one place behind them, having pocketed four points, two adrift of leaders. Real Madrid are heading into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw against Osasuna in a La Liga fixture on sunday. Shakhtar, meanwhile, thrashed Metalist in an Ukrainian Premier League match  a day earlier. 

Real Madrid began their champions League title-defence with a 3-0 victory over Rangers on September 7, before defeating RB Leipzig 2-0, a week later. Against Leipzig, Los Blancos struggled to find the back of the net until Federico Valverde broke the deadlock, ten minutes from time. And then, Marco Asensio doubled the lead one minute into injury time to seal the win. Meanwhile Carlo Ancelotti’s side dropped their first points of the season against Osasuna on Sunday. Although Vinicius Jr put Los Blancos ahead three minutes before the break, Osasuna equalised through Kike Garcia’s 50th-minute strike to share the points. 

Los Blancos are currently sitting at the second position in the La Liga standings, having collected 19 points from seven games, level on points with leaders Barcelona, but separated by goal-difference. Shakhtar, on the other hand, are also sitting at the summit of the Ukrainian Premier League standings, having won four of their opening five games thus far. Meanwhile, the Miners kicked off their European campaign with a 4-1 win over RB Leipzig, before playing out a 1-1 draw against Celtic, last month.
