Shakhtar Donetsk vs Real Madrid: how and where to watch - times, tv, online

The meeting in the Spanish capital in October saw the Ukrainian side spring on of the biggest surprises of the 2020/21 Champions League group stages with a depleted side ravaged by covid managing to defeat the 13 time champions at Valdebebas.

Real Madrid have regrouped in Europe and after a draw in Germany away to Borussia Monchengladbach, back-to-back wins over Inter see Zidane's men sitting in second place in Group B with seven points and only a series of freak results would see the LaLiga giants for missing out on a place in the next stage.

Zinedine Zidane has named a 21-man squad for the trip to face Shakhtar Donetsk in Kiev and the most notable aspect is the return of Karim Benzema, who has missed Madrid’s last three fixtures due to a muscle injury sustained against Valencia on 8 November. The French striker’s return will be a big boost for Los Blancos ahead of this crucial European clash, which will be followed by back-to-back crunch ties with Sevilla and Atlético Madrid in LaLiga. Carvajal, Ramos, Jovic, Valverde and Hazard all miss out through injury.

Shakhtar come into the game on the back of a 0-1 away to SC Dnipro and anything less than a win will all but end the Ukrainian sides aspirations of progressing in the competition.
