Sitting pretty in the group

After two shaky showings in the first two Champions League matches, Real Madrid has righted the ship and now find themselves just one point back of first place Borussia Monchengladbach.

When Group B was drawn, everyone in the footballing world expected it to be a two-horse race between Real and Inter. Now, Inter sits in fourth place, five points back of Real Madrid.

Even though Real Madrid fell to Shakhtar Donetsk on matchday one, the Ukrainian side’s defeats of 6-0 and 4-0 at the hands of Gladbach has tanked their goal differential (-9). So, it’s safe to say at this point that a win over Shakhtar and a draw or win over Gladbach would secure Los Blancos a spot in the knockout stage.
