Four days later, Real Madrid will face their final game of the group stage of the Champions League, against Brugge. That match will be the first of three games on the road. The side's next trips will be to Mestalla and the Camp Nou. The Whites head to Valencia for the teams' LaLiga Matchday 17 tussle, before travelling to Barcelona for the rescheduled Matchday 10 bout.
