The real blow for Los Blancos is the long-term absence of Marco Asensio. The Spanish midfielder suffered a cruciate ligament rupture and will be out until spring of next year.  ​

As for the side from the Italian capital, they have managed to keep the whole squad fit throughout pre-season so far. However, Patrik Schick and Steven Nzonzi haven’t started in any of their last three matches, fuelling rumours of their exits from the club.

Sunday’s match in Rome will be the 14th time the two clubs have faced ​one another. Madrid have taken the spoils nine times, while I Giallorossi have been victorious on just three occasions.

The most recent meetings between the two came in last season’s Champions League group stages. Goals from Isco, ​Gareth Bale, and Mariano Diaz gave Los Blancos a comfortable 3-0 win at the Bernabeu.

The story was a similar one in Italy. Bale netted once again with Lucas Vazquez also getting in on the action as a 2-0 win for Madrid meant they topped Group G, while Roma also went through in second.

Zidane’s side will have been disappointed with the 7-3 thumping they were delivered at the hands of bitter rivals ​Atletico Madrid. However, with two wins in their last two things seem to finally be clicking for the 13 time European champions.

The results of Paolo Fonseca’s side have been very promising. However, the quality of opposition they have faced has not been that high.

Three wins over lower league opposition were followed by a win over Lille and a draw against Athletic Bilbao, not giving any real insight into the true capabilities of this Roma side.

​Real Madrid have had a tough pre-season and with increasing injuries they will struggle to play at the top of their game. However, ​Eden Hazard recently scored his first goal for the club and can always turn a game on its head.

Despite the recent injuries and poor results, Madrid should be the sharper of the two and have the quality in their squad to grab the win.
