RMA Vs BER: Match Preview And Kickoff Time

When Real Madrid hosts Union Berlin in the Champions League on Wednesday night, they will be looking to make it six straight wins in all competitions to kick off the 2023–24 season.

Los Blancos are coming off a 2-1 La Liga victory over Real Sociedad, while Union Berlin were defeated 2-1 by Wolfsburg in their previous Bundesliga match on Saturday.

Real Madrid have not been at their free-flowing best this season, but the capital giants have been tremendously effective, winning five straight La Liga games to sit atop the league with 15 points.

Real Madrid face Atletico Madrid in the Madrid derby this weekend, but their current emphasis is on the Champions League, where they hope to make a strong start in a group that also includes Portuguese team Braga and Italian champions Napoli.

Union Berlin, meanwhile, finished fourth in the Bundesliga last season, earning 62 points from 34 games and qualifying directly for the Champions League group stage for the first time.

Die Eisernen competed in the Europa Conference League for the 2021–22 season but did not go past the group stage, although they did reach the last-16 stage of the Europa League in 2022–23.

Union Berlin will now make the move up to the largest cup competition in European football, and they will do so at the Bernabeu after two disappointing domestic losses.

Indeed, Urs Fischer’s team has lost their past two Bundesliga games against RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg, following three straight wins in all competitions, including their first two in the league, and a total of six points has put them in eighth place in the table.
