Real Madrid to be without Bale, Modric & Vazquez for Galatasaray clash

Real Madrid vs Galatasaray

Real Madrid are set to take on Turkish outfit Galatasaray on Tuesday evening in the Champions League.

Real enjoyed a plethora of success in the competition under Zinedine Zidane’s guidance during his first spell in charge at the Bernabeu.

However, Los Blancos are having a dismal start to their 2019/20 CL campaign.

Madrid’s first Champions League match of the season saw them comprehensively beaten by PSG.

Then, in their last European outing, Madrid were held to a 2-2 draw by Belgian outfit Club Brugge.

This put Madrid dead bottom of Group A.

As for their upcoming opponents Galatasaray, they are currently 3rd in the group with one point from two games.

Given the fact that PSG have already amassed six points from their opening two CL games this season, top spot in Group A does look to be out of Real’s reach now.

But, should they fail to win in Istanbul on Tuesday, their hopes of even making it out of the group could be in jeopardy.

Real Madrid trio omitted

Madrid would release their squad to take on Galatasaray on Sunday evening.

The squad showcased that Madrid are still suffering from a fair few injury problems.

While Toni Kroos was included in the squad after missing out on Real Madrid’s 1-0 defeat to Mallorca at the weekend, Zidane is still without Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez.

Spanish outlet Marca claims that the trio have been omitted from the traveling squad due to respective injuries.

Eden Hazard, though, has returned after missing the weekend’s game due to the birth of his son.
