Real Madrid are Germany bound ahead of tomorrow night's attractive Group F Champions League tie (kick off 20:45 CET) as they face Thomas Tuchel's Dortmund side. The key omissions for Zidane are the injured pair of Marcelo and Casemiro.

The surprise inclusion in the 22 man squad is that of Portuguese defender Fabio Coentrao.

The 28 Vila Do Conde born player has been missing with an injury for the past five months. His compatriot Pepe is also back in the squad for Dortmund after missing the Villarreal and Las Palmas games after picking up a knock in the 0-2 away win over Espanyol.
