GAME PREVIEW


Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid

While the competition is far from the Spaniards' top priority, it'll serve as a welcome break from life in La Liga where they find themselves seven points behind Barcelona after just 15 games.

This will be the first time Real and Gremio have ever faced each other in a competitive match and there could hardly be more at stake for both sides.
