Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk.

Real Madrid will be looking to bounce back from Saturday's shock defeat to Cadiz when they open their 2020-21 Champions League campaign at home to Shakhtar Donetsk.

Los Blancos suffered their first league loss of the campaign at home to Cadiz, with Anthony Lozano scoring the only goal of the contest in the 16th minute.

Zinedine Zidane's side will be determined to return to winning ways on Wednesday as they prepare to welcome Ukrainian giants Shakhtar to Spain for what should be an entertaining contest.

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

Alvaro Odriozola has missed Madrid's last two matches with a calf injury that he picked up during a training session earlier this month.
