Real Madrid vs Sheriff Prediction: Champions League Match on 28.09.2021
It will be a big night in Spain for Sheriff on Tuesday, as they face the biggest game of their Champions League history when they take on Real Madrid. Both sides will be looking to back up their first group stage wins with a second victory.
Champions League Preview
Real Madrid are second in Group D coming into the second round of fixtures in the Champions League group stages. The Spanish giants needed to ride their luck in the first matchday, as they just about came out on top against Inter Milan, winning 1-0. Thibaut Courtois was in excellent form, as the Belgian number one kept the Italian giants out, despite the fact that the Serie A champions created many of the best chances in the game. The match was won late on by Rodrygo, who scored in the 89th minute with Real’s second shot on target in the match. That tense fixture at the San Siro is likely to be the toughest game that the Spanish giants will face in the group stages, but they will need to ensure that they don’t take their eyes off the ball.
It was a very famous victory for Sheriff in the Champions League a couple of weeks ago, as they upset the odds by beating Shakhtar Donetsk in Moldova. Sheriff were heavily fancied to finish at the bottom of this group, but that victory gives them an excellent chance of at least grabbing the Europa League place in Group D. Adama Traore scored the first goal on the night, while Momo Yansane doubled their advantage with half an hour remaining. However, this would have been the game that the players would have been looking forward to when the draw for the group stages was made.
Real Madrid vs Sheriff Head to Head
Unsurprisingly, this is the first time that Real Madrid and Sheriff have met. Teams from Spain and Moldova have met on just two previous occasions, when Real Betis won both legs in the UEFA Cup against Zimbru Chisinau in the 2002-03 season.
Real Madrid vs Sheriff Prediction
Real Madrid are heavily expected to make it two wins from two in the Champions League. Sheriff have a poor record away from home in Europe, winning just once in 12 fixtures. Meanwhile, Real have failed to score just once in their last 37 home games in Europe.
