Real Madrid take a trip to Turkey to face Galatasaray in their must-win clash in the Champions League on Tuesday night and manager Zinedine Zidane has decided to drop Luka Modric and Gareth Bale as well as Lucas Vazquez for the trip due to their respective injuries.

The trio was not included in the squad that suffered defeat against Real Mallorca on Saturday evening but the good news for Zidane is the return of Toni Kroos, Eden Hazard and Dani Carvajal.
