Real Madrid will look to extend their impressive home form in Europe when they host Legia Warsaw in the Champions League on 18 October.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport Extra.


Real Madrid ended a run of four games without a win in emphatic fashion as they thrashed Real Betis 6-1 at the Benito Villamarin on 15 October. The Spanish giants have won 27 of their last 31 home fixtures in the Champions League, including the last seven in a row.

Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, Casemiro and James Rodriguez are all sidelined through injury for the hosts.

Legia Warsaw have only won one of their last seven matches in all competitions and are at the bottom of Champions League Group F without a point. The Polish club have never triumphed over Spanish opponents on Spanish soil.

Legia manager Jacek Magiera has no fresh injury concerns.

What managers say

Zinedine Zidane: "I'm utterly satisfied [after the win against Real Betis] because we needed to make a statement after drawing four straight matches. Real Madrid needed a high intensity performance because there are no weak sides in La Liga. It is not easy to react for our opponents when we start a match as strongly as we did. Now our goal is to continue to play at this level. Later this season we should look back at this match and feel proud of our display, playing at this level on the road is not easy."

Jacek Magiera: "We have a lot of work ahead of us. We know what to work on. I have a team that is sure to raise its game and the next match we will fight for victory."
