Real Madrid look to get up and running in the Champions League after losing their opener, while Juventus look to capitalise on Barcelona's woes.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane

Real Madrid will look to back up their 3-1 win at Barcelona when they make the trip to Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Los Blancos will be full of confidence after dispatching Ronald Koeman’s side and now Gladbach lie in wait.

Real to Get Euro Campaign on Track

Real suffered a shock defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in their Champions League opener and can afford few further mistakes if they are to reach the knockout stages of the competition this season.

Los Blancos were forced to rest players against Shakhtar with manager Zinedine Zidane having one eye on their trip to the Camp Nou.

The French tactician won’t have that problem this week and Real are 10/11 to pick up the three points against a Gladbach side that have had an inconsistent start to the season.

Inter Can Sink Shakhtar

Elsewhere in Group B, Inter Milan will be looking for their first win of the Champions League campaign when they face Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Nerazzurri head to Ukraine on the back of a 2-0 win at Genoa in Serie A and manager Antonio Conte will be determined to see his side build up a winning run.

Inter were made to work for a 2-2 draw on home soil against Gladbach last time out but they should be able to secure a win on the road against a Shakhtar side that surely won’t be able to repeat the same standard of performance they produced against Real.

It won’t be straightforward, but Conte’s side are 5/6 to win on the road on Tuesday.

Juve Can Add to Barca’s Woes

All does not seem to be well in the Barcelona camp as they head to Serie A champions Juventus on Wednesday.

Ronald Koeman came into his dream job at the Camp Nou but had to deal with Lionel Messi’s attempted exit from the Blaugrana almost straight away, which has not helped his cause.

The Dutchman has looked to settle the squad but a 3-1 defeat to Real in his first El Clasico as manager certainly won’t have helped the pressure on his shoulders.

Things have been made even worse with Philippe Coutinho ruled out for the upcoming games with a hamstring injury.

Juventus will smell blood and with the Old Lady having earned a 2-0 win away at Dynamo Kiev in their Champions League opener, Andrea Pirlo’s side will fancy their chances of a scalp against Barca and are 33/20 for the win over the La Liga giants.

United to Build on PSG Win

Manchester United might have made a stuttering start to their Premier League campaign but they managed a fine win over Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League opener.

The Red Devils are back to the familiar surroundings of Old Trafford for the arrival of Bundesliga frontrunners RB Leipzig on Wednesday.

While Leipzig might have made a promising start to the season they face a tough trip to Manchester and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have found a way of winning in Europe.

United are a good price of 5/4 to pick up the three points on home soil.
