Real Madrid have been a shadow of the team that won four trophies last season including the coveted Champions League title back to back.

The club has been struggling domestically and has won only three matches in their last six outings.

All these must be put behind when they square up against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday in the Champions League Group H fixture.

Madrid have never won in Dortmund and despite recent successes. They have historically struggled in away games against Bundesliga sides.

The Zinédine Zidane side are already on the board in Group H having beaten APOEL FC 3-0 on matchday one. 

For Dortmund, 3-1 losers at Tottenham Hotspur FC in their first fixture, a positive result is crucial to prevent them slipping further off the pace.

The club's record from six previous meetings on German soil is three wins for Dortmund, none for Madrid and three draws.

In last season's group stage, both contests finished 2-2.

Madrid twice led in Dortmund, through Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphaël Varane; Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and, in the 87th minute, André Schürrle replied for Thomas Tuchel's Dortmund.
