Real Madrid once again had a great start to the season. In their first 7 games they remain undefeated with only 2 games ending in a draw. Although one of their biggest stars, Karim Benzema, is likely to miss this match although their bench players will be more than enough to fill in the gap.

Historically Apoel has had problems when facing Spanish teams as a guest, having lost seven of their eight visits to Spain with the only draw occurring in the 2009/10 Champions Leagues group stage against Club Atletico de Madrid when the game ended with no goals.
When it comes to mutual encounters, they have only faced each other once in 2012 when Real Madrid beat Apoel with the total aggregate of 8:2.
