Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Red Bull Arena will host Tuesday’s Champions League encounter between Leipzig and Real Madrid. The Red Bulls are hungry for revenge, but they face a difficult task in the Group F derby. Christopher Nkunku should be recalled to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in a 3-3 draw with Augsburg, whilst all Gulasci, Klostermann, and Laimer should miss out through injuries.
Los Blancos, on the other hand, are eager to cement top position in the standings, and seeing that they are four points clear of Leipzig, Carlo Ancelotti’s troops should be happy with one point from the match. Key attacker Karim Benzema is definitely sidelined with injury, meaning that Rodrygo will lead the line for the Spanish champions. Fede Valverde and Luka Modric have joined Mariano Diaz and Dani Ceballos in the recovery room, but first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is back after missing the Shakhtar game.
Highlighted Player (Janis Blaswich):
Janis Blawich is a German footballer who plays for Heracles Almelo as a goalkeeper. Blaswich started his senior career at Borussia Monchengladbach, make 125 appearances for the reserve team. In the 2015/16 season he was loaned to Dynamo Dresden where he made 30 league appearances.
Following his loan spell with the Yellow and Blacks, the 193-cm-tall shot-stopper moved to fellow German side Hansa Rostock, signing yet another loan deal. In 2018 he joined Dutch club Heracles Almelo, and he has been playing for the Heraclieden ever since. Janis Blaswich made his Eredivisie debut on August 11, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Heracles, and he managed to keep his first clean sheet in the Dutch top flight the following month in a 4-0 win over De Graafschap.
The goalkeeper was born in Willich, Germany on May 2, 1991, and his preferred foot is right. Janis Blaswich wears the No. 1 shirt at Heracles.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid is a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 13 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world.
Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards.
The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
