Former Real Madrid star Michael Laudrup expects Zinedine Zidane's side's Champions League last-16 tie against Roma to be a walkover.
The Spanish giants put aside their indifferent league form under Rafa Benitez to top Group A ahead of Paris Saint-Germain and have won five of their six games since Zidane assumed control of first-team affairs.
Despite steering Roma to the knockout stages, in part due to a creditable 1-1 draw with Barcelona at the Stadio Olimpico back in September, the Serie A side parted company with Rudi Garcia in January.

"Being respectful to Roma, I think Real Madrid are the clear favourites for this tie," Laudrup told Goal.
"I saw Roma against Barcelona at Camp Nou and, even though they had important players missing like [Daniele] De Rossi, Barcelona trampled all over them.
"Having the second game at home, Real Madrid shouldn't have a lot of problems."
