Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester City

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Friday's Champions League fixture with Manchester City.

Real Madrid take on Manchester City on Friday evening looking to overturn a first-leg deficit in the Champions League last-16 tie between the two sides.

Back in February, a late flurry from City earned the Premier League giants a 2-1 victory at the Bernabeu, boosting their chances of a first ever triumph in this competition.

However, with both clubs well rested after the conclusion of their respective domestic campaigns, it has provided players with an opportunity to recuperate ahead of the encounter at the Etihad Stadium.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the injury and suspension news regarding Zinedine Zidane's squad.
