Real Madrid head to Roma with both teams tied on nine points after four games played and in good shape to make it through to the knockout stages.

The holders will need to bounce back from a surprise La Liga defeat to Eibar on Saturday. Santiago Solari's men were beaten 3-0, and he was not impressed with his team's performance:

Los Blancos beat Roma 3-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu, but it will be a different match at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma put five past Viktoria Plzen and beat CSKA Moscow 3-0 in their two home games in the group stage thus far. They also famously beat Barcelona 3-0 in the quarter-final second leg at home last season.

Yet the Giallorossi also come into the game fresh from a surprise defeat. They were beaten 1-0 at relegation-threatened Udinese on Saturday.

Juventus have had no such problems in Serie A. The reigning champions are yet to taste defeat and are already eight points clear at the top.

Cristiano Ronaldo's side are big favourites to make up for their home defeat to Manchester United last time out and beat Valencia.

The Juventus No. 7 will be hoping to maintain his fine goalscoring form. He has seven goals in his last eight games in all competitions and is already notching records in Italy:

Ronaldo may also relish taking on Valencia again. He was controversially sent off when the two sides met at the Mestalla in September after a clash with Jeison Murillo.

Manchester United's win over Juventus means Jose Mourinho's side are just a point behind the Italian champions ahead of the final two group matches.

They will also be confident of victory over Young Boys at Old Trafford, having won 3-0 at the home of the Swiss champions in September.

However, the Red Devils have rarely impressed this season. They put in another poor performance in Saturday's 0-0 draw with struggling Crystal Palace.

Samuel Luckhurst at the Manchester Evening News said Mourinho is not getting the best out of his players:

Samuel Luckhurst @samuelluckhurst

When you consider Spurs - who didn’t sign anyone in the summer - have just battered Chelsea and are third, it’s difficult to sympathise with Mourinho. Another coach would probably derive more from current #mufc players.

It's been a difficult season already for Manchester United. Yet a win on Tuesday, and a place in the knockout stages, would help provide a boost.
