Madrid head into Tuesdays’ match in high spirits, with their Clasico win at Camp Nou and Barca’s subsequent slip-up at Real Sociedad on Saturday – coupled with their own win over Eibar – reigniting the Liga title race. Zidane’s men now sit just four points adrift of Barca with six league games remaining.

The Eibar victory also featured yet another milestone for Cristiano Ronaldo, who became the first player to net 30 La Liga goals in six straight seasons. The Madrid superstar is also this season’s top scorer in the Champions League, with 13 goals in just nine appearances.

Wolfsburg, meanwhile, are languishing in eighth in the Bundesliga, with a 1-1 draw with Mainz on Saturday dealing another blow to their faint hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

Dieter Hecking’s team are now winless in their last four league outings, and the coach blamed “tired minds” after they failed to hold a lead given to them by Andre Schurrle’s goal early in the second half against Mainz.

Key Opta stats:

– In 15 previous instances of teams losing 2-0 away from home in the first leg of a Champions League game, only twice have sides managed to progress – Barcelona in February 2013 (v AC Milan) and Manchester Utd in February 2014 (v Olympiacos).
– Real Madrid have won 29 of their last 34 Champions League games at the Bernabeu (D3 L2).
– Madrid are the only team yet to concede a goal at home in the Champions League this season.
– Wolfsburg – who are in the quarter-finals of Europe’s top club competition for the first time in their history – have won their last five Champions League games, their best ever run and the longest current streak among teams left in the competition.
