Real Madrid go into their penultimate match in Champions League Group D with a two point lead. They travel to Sheriff Tiraspol who are third but will go above their opponents if getting a second win over Real. Sheriff are in third place, a point behind Inter and five clear of Shakhtar in fourth. Failure by Shakhtar to win in Italy will see Sheriff guaranteed at least a place in the Europa League. The Moldovans got off to a great start in this group with a win over Shakhtar and then victory in Madrid. Two games against Inter were both lost and that's hit their hopes of making it into the last 16. Those defeats are the only two lost in the last 26 matches and they are second in their domestic league with games in hand.
Real Madrid have won three of their four games but a win here won't guarantee them winning the group. A last match decider at home to Inter is looking likely. Victory here will guarantee them a place in the last 16. The last seven games have seen Real win six and draw with Osasuna. They top La Liga by a point with a game in hand, so all is going well for the Spanish side. Their last four away games have all ended in victory with 13 goals scored. Back them to get the win here.
