Real Madrid vs FC Copenhagen takes place in the Champions League 2013 tournament on Wednesday night as the Spanish giants look to recover from their surprise loss at the weekend to local rivals Atletico Madrid. The game will kick off at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Real will expect to win this game easily and anything other than a confident win will disappoint fans who had to suffer the humiliation of a home loss to local rivals Atletico Madrid at the weekend.
That loss leaves Real falling even further behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in the Spanish La Liga table and they already look to have their work cut out if they are to steal back the La Liga crown from Barcelona this season.
Gareth Bale is out of tonight's game after suffering a relapse on his thigh injury, and that will be a big loss for the Spanish team. However, not many would expect that to have much impact on the result of today's game, and regardless of whether Bale is in the starting line up or not, Real are expected to easily win this clash.
They should be careful though, as Copenhagen were able to gain a useful draw against Juventus in their opening Champions League game showing that they will refuse to be the whipping boys of this group. They will look to stifle the Real offense, and will hope to keep them out at all costs.
Meanwhile, Xabi Alonso is also still out for Real, but they should have enough in their big squad to cover him easily. FC Copenhagen on the other hand have no injury worries.
