While FC Barcelona were held to a draw at the Parc des Princes, this could yet be a successful week for Spanish football and La Liga in general as both Real Madrid and Malaga prepare for UEFA Champions League action. Los Blancos host Turkish champions Galatasaray at the Santiago Bernabeu in a tie that Jose Mourinho's side are expected to comfortably win, while Malaga welcome Borussia Dortmund to La Rosaleda. Unlike Madrid, Malaga are not expected to get a result in either leg; although who knows, if they can secure a favourable result tonight, they may well fancy their chances of booking a place in the final four.
Malaga XI: Willy; Jesus Gamez, Demichelis, Weligton, Antunes; Joaquin, Toulalan, Iturra, Isco; Baptista, Saviola.
Dortmund XI: Weidenfeller, Łukasz Piszczek, Subotić, Santana, Schmelzer, Kehl, İlkay Gündoğan, Reus, Götze, Großkreutz, Lewandowski
Real Madrid XI: Diego Lopez, Essien, Varane, Ramos, Coentrao, Khedira, Xabi Alonso, Ozil, Di Maria, Ronaldo, Benzema
Galatasaray XI: Muslera, Eboue, Semih, Dany, Riera, Melo, Hamit, Selcuk, Sneijder, Burak, Drogba.
