If you have anything to tweet at me about the game - you can't, I deleted my accounts.
Real Madrid are in the ess in some respects here. Yes, they won the El Classico, but last week they were upset 3-2 against Shakhtar Donetsk. At home. Whoops.
Here are the biggest stories from the papers.
Gladbach's most dangerous duo are Plea and Thuram. They pose plenty of a threat to the Real defence.
The big news for Real Madrid tonight is that Eden Hazard is fit - but only fit enough to get on the bench. Luka Modric joins him, but otherwise this is pretty much their strongest XI. Gareth Bale is completely out of the squad, but that's probably because he now plays for Spurs.
Don't forget the Liverpool match is on here.
Here is how Real line up.
