Real Madrid: With how bad this team has been, they are actually in first place in Group G. The expectation is for this team to take a step forward, show quality and get three more points. Anything short of a win will be surprising.
Viktoria: This team has plenty to play for but little hope. A draw is needed to really stay within striking distance, but their skill level isn't close to matching half of Real's. They'll need some luck or a penalty kick to have much of a chance.
Real Madrid vs. Viktoria prediction
Los Blancos make it three wins from three under new interim boss Santiago Solari, and Karim Benzema scores again.
Pick: Real Madrid (-460)
