Real Madrid have already locked up their place in the next stage of the Champions League, while FC Copenhagen cannot advance. Nevertheless, there is plenty at stake as Copenhagen can go through to the Europa League with a favorable result.

Madrid, on the other hand, may be tempted to try to break the record for the most goals scored in the group stage of the Champions League (20, held by Manchester United 1998-99 and Barcelona 2011-12). They need three goals to beat the record and, after beating Copenhagen 4-0 at home, we know that Los Blancos are capable of finding the back of the net against this opposition.

Key Storylines

With nothing at stake for Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, it will be interesting to see how he deals with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 2008 FIFA World Player of the Year has missed three matches due to a hamstring injury, but Ancelotti has stated that Ronaldo is fine and will “play on Tuesday without any problem,” according to SkySports.

Ronaldo’s health is a major factor for Madrid moving forward in the tournament, so everyone will be carefully monitoring how the Portuguese star looks and how long he’s in the game.

Eyes will be on the score of the Galatasaray-Juventus game as Copenhagen need more points than Galatasaray to get through to the Europa League.

Stale Solbakken’s men will have their work cut out for them but everything to play for against Madrid. Can they do enough to advance?



The Danish team are unbeaten at home in their previous two games, but this test will be too hard for them. Not only are Real Madrid one of the best teams in the world, but Copenhagen have been hit by injuries.

They are missing three of their most creative players in Nicolai Jorgensen, Daniel Braaten and Rurik Gislason.

In the end, Madrid’s firepower will be too much to overcome and Copenhagen won’t be able to get any points.
