Real Madrid Preview – Will Real follow-up impressive win in match day one to take control of the group?

Real Madrid may not be the force they were when winning four Champions Leagues in the space of five years but they are still a capable of team and we are beginning to see the emergence of a new collection of players who are looking to get them back there. The quality of them was apparent on match day one as Real deservedly won 1-0 in Milan against current Italian champions Inter.

On paper that is their most challenging fixture in this group but it will mean little if they do not follow-up by getting another three points in this game and taking control of the section.


Our betting prediction
Marco Asensio to score in 90 minutes
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Monday 27 September)

Rodrygo’s late goal was enough to get Real off to a winning start. His countryman Vinicius Junior is grabbing most of the headlines just now and making more of a consistent impact but they will both have to complement Karim Benzema more often this season if Real are to improve on their showings over the last couple of years.

Real had hit 11 goals in two home games before drawing a blank against Villareal last weekend so they will look at this match as an opportunity to get back amongst the goals in front of their own support.

Sheriff Tiraspol Preview – Could Champions League debutants Sheriff pull off one of the biggest shocks in competition history?

It’s Sheriff’s first time playing in the Champions League and they are looking to leave their mark. A 2-0 win against perennial participants at this stage Shakthar Donetsk two weeks ago has set them up perfectly for the games against the big two in this section. Goals from Adama Traore and Momo Yansane in either half sent out a warning to the other teams that they are not just here to make up the numbers.

The win last time out probably shouldn’t have come as a huge surprise considering Sheriff had eliminated Red Star Belgrade and Dinamo Zagreb in qualification for the group stage. Both are also regulars in this competition but were dispatched with a minimum of fuss.

Sheriff have an array of nationalities in their squad with players coming from Africa, the Americas and Europe and led by a Ukrainian – Yury Vernydub. In charge for less than a year it’s also his first experience of coaching at this level and he will relish the opportunity of coming up against Ancelotti in this one.

Because of their European commitments Sheriff have played fewer games in their domestic league than their rivals but remain the top scorers in spite of that averaging more than three goals a game.

Real Madrid vs Sheriff Tiraspol Betting Advice

It’s been an amazing achievement for Sheriff to even get to this stage and although they will be looking forward to testing themselves against the mite of Real, they will also feel they can be competitive and perhaps spring what would be a huge surprise.

The visitor’s are undefeated in their four away games in Europe this season and have conceded one goal. Clearly this is a huge step up in quality but it shows they are well organised and have a style which can frustrate their opponents.


Key Facts – Real Madrid vs Sheriff Tiraspol Betting Tip

  • Real Madrid kicked off their Champions League campaign with a valuable 1-0 win away to Inter Milan
  • Sheriff’s first Champions League group stage game was a 2-0 win against Shakthar Donetsk
  • The teams will meet again in Tiraspol at the end of November


Real’s new dynamic and expansive style under Ancelotti should be perfect for this sort of game. They will look to stretch their opponents with width up top and create opportunities for Benzema. As good as Sheriff have been so far it might be a bridge too far. Real can cover a two goal handicap.
