Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Galatasaray

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's La Liga clash with Galatasaray.

Real Madrid will be looking for their first Champions League win of the season when they travel to Istanbul to face Galatasaray on Tuesday night.

Los Blancos are currently bottom of Group A having picked up just a single point from their two matches thus far, while they will enter the match off the back of a 1-0 loss to Mallorca in La Liga at the weekend.

Paris Saint-Germain are currently sitting in a formidable position at the top of the section, but a win for Madrid on Tuesday night would move them into second spot ahead of matchday four.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash.
