Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid).
Real Madrid are going to host CSKA Moscow in the last round of the group stage in the Champions League.
Home side tied four victories in all competition and they’ve improved their form in compare to the beginning of the campaign. Real Madrid conceded just once in those four matches, while Karim Benzema and the lads were pretty productive. They’ve already secured the top spot in the group, but the current European champions want to keep the perfect record when playing in front of the home crowd.
CSKA Moscow are sitting on the bottom of the table although they have the same number of points as Viktoria Plzen. The visitors missed the chance to secure the 3rd place and remain in the game for the eight finals after losing to Czech Republic champions in the latest round. Viktor Goncharenko’s side lost three times in a row in the Champions League, but they managed to stabilize their firm in the national championship. They need to search for points in this one in order to keep the chances of continuing the campaign in Europa League.
