Zinedine Zidane’s side are in a strong position in the tie having won last week’s first leg in Madrid 3-1, but are without a number of star players.
Hazard no viajará a Liverpool.
Se une a las bajas de Ramos, Carvajal, Lucas Vázquez y Varane.

The Belgian star was diagnosed with a muscle injury in the right psoas but decided not to undergo surgery on the issue on the advice of the medical teams of his national side and Real Madrid.
His continued absence prolongs his injury agony since joining the club in 2019 – and he has played only a bit-part role this campaign.
The report adds that also unavailable are right-back Dani Carvajal – who had, like Hazard, returned to training this week – while club captain Sergio Ramos also sits out through injury and Raphael Varane has Covid-19.
