Real Madrid and Malmo won’t be playing for much when they face off Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, but the world will watch anyway.
Real Madrid already has won Group A of the UEFA Champions League but it seeks to extend its winning run to five games in all competition and maintain its recent flow of goals. Malmo can earn a third-place finish and a spot in the UEFA Europa League with a shock victory (and help from PSG against Shakthtar Donetsk in the group’s other finale).
Malmo will be without suspended duo Rasmus Bengtsson and Markus Rosenberg for its big test.
Real Madrid likely will rest Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Marcelo, while Sergio Ramos, Rafael Varane, Dani Carvajal all are out with injuries.
Real Madrid won the last meeting with Malmo 2-0 on Sept. 30 in Sweden. The Spanish giant is expecting an improved result on home soil.
When: Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 2:45 p.m. ET
