Real Madrid's winning streak in all competitions since their 3-3 draw at Levante on 22nd August, ended last weekend after a 0-0 draw with Villarreal but will be keen to return to winning ways against the Wasps.
For FC Sheriff, they enter this fixture having won four of their last eight away European fixtures, suffering just one defeat in the process. They started their 2021-22 domestic campaign strongly and have picked up 19 points from their eight league matches to sit third in the table, but have played three games less than their league leaders Milsami. They visit Santiago Bernabeu on the back of a 7-0 win over Dinamo-Auto at the weekend, having beaten Shatkter Donetsk at home in their opening Group D match, something Carlo Anceloti must be very aware of.
Real Madrid Predicted Formations Against FC Sheriff
Carlo Anceloti is likely to continue with his preferred 4-3-3 formation.
With Daniel Carvajal out, Lucas Vasquez is likely to deputise on the right side defence, while Alaba returns to the left side defence. Nacho and Eder Militao is likely to continue in the central defense. In the midfield, Casemiro is likely to return in the defensive midfield and is likely to joined by Camavinga and Luka Modric, with Federico Valverde likely to play from the bench. Upfront, Eden Hazard is likely to start alongside Karim Benzema and either Asensio or Vinicius.

Predicted Match Result
It would be naive for Real Madrid to see FC Sheriff as underdogs, considering their recent form and attractive counter attacking football. The match will be a very cagey affair at the Santiago Bernabeu, but it is Real Madrid who are more likely to triumph by 3-1. Benzema, Luka Modric and Vincius JnR are likely to get on the score sheet.
