Real Madrid will look to begin the defence of their Champions League title with a bang when they host APOEL Nicosia on WednesdayMatchday 1 of the latest edition of the UEFA Champions League comes to an end on Wednesday. In Group H, Real Madrid, bidding for a historic three-peat, will kick off the defence of their title when they play hosts to Cypriot champions APOEL Nicosia at Santiago Bernabeu.
The hosts made history in June when they became the first side to defend their Champions League crown, two weeks after lifting the La Liga title. Their form at the start of the 2017-18 season though, has been quite erratic, with two draws and a win leaving them four points behind bitter rivals Barcelona.
Zinedine Zidane has a few injury concerns on his hands ahead of their Champions League curtain raiser on Wednesday. The Real Madrid boss could have as many as four key first-team player unavailable due to fitness issues, although Cristiano Ronaldo is set to return to action.
The Portuguese superstar is yet to feature in La Liga for Los Blancos this season, after he was slapped with a five-match ban during the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup. While he is yet to serve the last of his suspension, the ban is only for domestic competitions, meaning he is available for selection in Europe.
However, Zidane will be without first-choice striker Karim Benzema, who sustained a hamstring injury in the match against Levante on the weekend. The French striker is expected to be out for at least a month.
Meanwhile, Keylor Navas, Raphael Varane and Marco Asensio are doubtful for Wednesday’s match. Navas missed the match against Levante due to a lack of match fitness as well, while Varane is likely to be unavailable for one more outing after only rejoining training on Monday following recover from an abductor injury.
