Coach Marco Rose will host Spanish competition leader Real Madrid with RB Leipzig on Tuesday evening in the first leg of the eighth finals in the Champions League.

For the Madrid team, star player Jude Bellingham dropped out with an ankle injury in the 4-0 top match against the surprising Girona last weekend and it is expected that the English international, who has been more than decisive at Real this season with twenty goals and eight assists, will be out of action for a few weeks. is out and will therefore not be there in Germany.

Rose, who coached Bellingham at Borussia Dortmund, thinks differently. “I only believe that he will not play if he is not at the stadium tomorrow/Tuesday,” he said during the press moment on Monday. “I know Jude, he will do everything he can to play in the Champions League.”

Real logically starts as favorite in the double confrontation with Leipzig of our compatriot Loïs Openda. Last season, both teams faced each other in the group stage. Then the Royal team won 2-0 in Madrid, after which they suffered a 3-2 defeat in Germany. In that second match, the Spaniards had already qualified for the second round.

“If you have already won against them, you can do it a second time,” says goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi. “With sufficient intensity and emotion we should be able to achieve a good result.”

“We know their qualities,” Rose continued. “But we are not a bad team either and we have excellent footballers in our ranks. We will do everything we can to secure a good starting position for the second leg.”
