With manager Julen Lopetegui already on the hot seat and rumors claiming that former boss Jose Mourinho is in line to replace him at Real Madrid, according to The Sun, the defending European champions will be losing for their first win in more than a month on Tuesday — and they may have found exactly what the doctor ordered in Czech Republic titlists Viktoria Plzen in a match that will live stream from the Bernabeu.

But with Real Madrid coming off of three straight defeats, per Sky Sports, including a 1-0 blanking by CSKA Moscow in the Champions League, they may have caught Real Madrid at exactly the right time.
"I am just preparing my team for the game. I do not look any further than that, which is my responsibility as a coach," Lopetegui told ESPN on Monday. "We are excited and motivated for tomorrow's game in an important competition like the Champions League. I cannot confirm anything apart from that I will be the coach tomorrow."
