Real Madrid host Huesca to wrap up what has been a tough and busy month of October. Madrid earned a statement win in El Clasico last weekend but they've also lost their last two home games, against Cadiz and Shakhtar. It's now time for Madrid to start gaining confidence, play better and just take care of business on Huesca's visit. The Belgian star played almost 30 minutes against Gladbach last Wednesday and was a bright spot, so he could potentially feature in today's starting lineup replacing Vinicius, who has been struggling a lot on the last two games. Zidane also has to start taking care of his squad as Real Madrid will face Inter Milan in what will be a crucial match next Wednesday.

Real Madrid escaped another Champions League defeat with a stoppage-time goal from Casemiro to rescue a 2-2 draw at Borussia Mönchengladbach on Tuesday. Madrid failed to cope with Gladbach's fast and fluid counterattacks as Marcus Thuram scored both of the German club's goals. Casemiro assisted Karim Benzema's overhead kick to give Madrid hope of a comeback in the 87th and then scored himself in added time.

Marco Asensio hit the post in the opening minute of the second half, but again Gladbach clung on and again it scored, Thuram knocking in the rebound in the 58th after Thibaut Courtois kept out Pléa's shot off a Stefan Lainer cross. Gladbach was always keen to slow the game down and time was running out for Madrid to respond before Benzema scored for Madrid in the 87th with an overhead kick after Casemiro showed good awareness to head a wayward cross back to the French striker. That left Shakhtar on four points at the top of the group, with Inter and Gladbach on two points and Madrid with one. There were no fans in attendance for Gladbach's game against Madrid.
