Tuesday's 2-1 Champions League victory over Viktoria Plzen was a first win in six games for Madrid, with Lopetegui's side having recently gone eight hours of play without scoring a goal, and a loss on Sunday could see them finish the weekend in the bottom half of La Liga. I am 100 percent focused on helping my team for tomorrow, nothing more.

"I have a great relationship with him", said Jordi Alba, Barca's left-back, who played under Lopetegui for Spain. We are excited and ready for this game.

"Lopetegui? Real Madrid don't wait for anybody", he added.

Madrid have won just one of their last six games in all competitions and are without a win in La Liga since they beat Espanyol on September 22, a run spanning four games.

But the France worldwide said he is not concerned about his team's spot in the table at this early stage of the season, especially with powerhouses Real Madrid and Barcelona also stumbling at times so far. If we wanted to get through the group we had to do what we did in the first two games, so we're in a good position. We are focused on training well, preparing well, and being in the best condition possible tomorrow for the game. Last time in the Champions League, Asensio came onto replacing Bale in the side and generally has been used on the right side of an attacking front three.




Former Real Madrid star Ivan Zamorano admits that the Merengue are struggling without Cristiano Ronaldo, with his incredible goalscoring abilities most keenly missed by the club.

"We are very happy for the match, against a team that was going to make things very hard for us, we played very well". We have a certain style, then Messi gives us a touch of brilliance that is extraordinary.

"The Champions League is special for us, although the other competitions are also very important".

Inter's halftime substitute Matteo Politano anxious Marc-Andre ter Stegen twice shortly after coming on, first with a cross that the Barcelona goalkeeper had to parry and then with a shot that went high.
