Real Madrid and Barcelona have both been without their best players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, due to injuries. However, Madrid have kept on rolling without Ronaldo while Barcelona are currently on a two game losing streak in Messi's absence.
Real Madrid are back at the Santiago Bernabéu to take on their group rivals from Turkey, Galatasaray. Cristiano Ronaldo is recovering from a thigh injury, so Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, and Isco will have to pick up the goalscoring slack in his absence.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti gave an interview with English newspaper The Times, in which he discussed his Real Madrid team, Mourinho's Chelsea, the departure of Özil, and the Champions League: "La Décima is not an obsession".
