The pupils of Carlo Ancelotti They take this Wednesday the first step in the last Champions League with the current format. A first duel, a priori, affordable, that will mark the future of the whites in the competition, in which it will be key to start off on the right foot. The match against the modest Germans should be a formalityalthough he does not want to repeat past mistakes - he lost (2-3) against Shakhtar Donetsk the last time the group stage started at home, in 2020-21-.

The 14-time European Cup champion faces a test against some of the 'little guys' in the group, David vs. Goliath, although a German painting that arrives in Madrid to turn the surprise into reality. However the The meringues' balance against Bundesliga clubs is very positive.

They have only lost one of their last 13 duels against german team in Champions (8V, 4E and 1D). In addition, they are undefeated at home in the continental competition since April 2022, and They have not lost against a German team at the Bernabéu since March 2015, when he Schalke 04 won 3-4.

real Madrid wants to open his European desire with good feelings to reinforce the good feelings with which he has started the season, despite the key injuries of Courtois, Militao and VinĂ­cius, three pillars in the last courses. But the whites have recovered with a new more physical and forceful modelspurred by a Jude Bellinghamauthor of 5 goals and 1 assist in 5 League games, who has landed on his feet in ChamartĂ­n and has already made Madrid fans fall in love with him.

His most recent goal served to culminate the merengue comeback against the Real society (2-1) at home, thus prolonging the full of merengue triumphs in these five days to be solo leader of LaLiga EA Sports with 15 points and only 3 goals against, the fewest in the competition.

The modest Union Berlin will fight in this scenario to cut the white streak and take a great loot from Madrid to fight to avoid being eliminated in this group stage. The imposing Bernabéu will host the debut of the German team in the Champions Leagueto which he arrives with the condition of 'covered', although with the endorsement of his work as well as striking Fourth place last year in the Bundesliga.
