Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale will miss the clash with the Danish hopefuls with an ongoing thigh problem that could threaten to keep him out of action at the weekend too.
The Wales international also missed last week’s matches against Getafe and Elche with “muscle fatigue” in the same thigh but returned to make his home debut for Madrid in the second half of Saturday’s derby loss to Atletico.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti will be looking to bounce straight back after losing to city rivals Atletico last Saturday.
Xabi Alonso is also missing, with the Spain international still recovering from a broken nose whilst full-back Marcelo is missing with a thigh injury. French defender Raphael Varanne is available again, though, after recently returning from surgery on his knee.
Copenhagen have doubts over veteran centre back Olof Mellberg, who was taken off with concussion during the weekend’s game against Brondby. But goalkeeper Johan Willand (arm) and Nicolai Jorgensen (groin) returned to action at the weekend and should be fit to go again in Madrid.
