Marco Asensio will miss Real Madrid vs APOEL after picking up a truly embarrassing ‘injury’
It’s safe to say that Real Madrid have been the dominant force in the Champions League during recent seasons, with Los Blancos claiming three of the last four titles.
In their finals, they have defeated city rivals Atletico twice and in Cardiff during the summer, they were simply too good for Juventus, winning 4-1 in Wales.
Now, Europe’s most prestigious competition has returned, with Zinedine Zidane’s side taking on Cypriot side APOEL Nicosia in their first group fixture.
Los Blancos have also been drawn alongside Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham, in what is perhaps the hardest group.
Nevertheless, the favourites will still be expected to progress with ease given their ridiculous squad strength.
