Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund is one of the biggest clashes in the Champions League on Tuesday evening. Real are reeling after losing to the German champions two weeks ago - a result that has seen Dortmund leap frog Real at the top of the table. The game is scheduled to kick off at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream by clicking on the link below.
Real will be desperate to gain the win to rectify their loss a fortnight ago and reclaim the top spot in the fiercely competitive group.
This "group of death" contains the champions of Spain, Germany, England and Holland, and every team has to make every game count if they are to qualify for the group stages.
Borussia Dortmund currently sit on top of Group D, with seven points from their first three games, claiming two wins and one draw.
Meanwhile Real Madrid have only managed two wins and a loss, claiming six points so far at the half way point in the group.
However, should Ajax beat Manchester City today, and Dortmund claim another win against the Spanish champions, then Real's spot in the top two to qualify for the next round would be in the balance, as both Ajax and Real would be level on points with just two games to go.
Manchester City's inexperience in the Champions League is showing. The team that surprisingly overturned Manchester United and Chelsea in the English Premier League last season have struggled again on the European stage this year. They currently sit bottom of the group with just one point after two losses and a draw from their opening three games. They are basically out of the reckoning already unless they can turn things around monumentally by winning all three of their final three games, and even that may not be enough.
For the winner of tonight's game between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund they will have one foot in the next round. The game starts at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched free online through live stream by clicking here.
