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

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

Real Madrid will be looking to record their third straight Champions League victory when they travel to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday night.

Los Blancos have won their last two games in the competition to rise into second spot in Group B, one point behind leaders Borussia Monchengladbach and three points clear of third-placed Shakhtar.

Zinedine Zidane's side would secure their spot in the round of 16 with a victory on Tuesday, but they will enter the match off the back of a shock 2-1 home defeat by Alaves in La Liga.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Shakhtar, who won at the Bernabeu in the reverse game.
