Edmund Addo and Sheriff Tiraspol hope to avoid defeat against Real Madrid in UCL

Published on: 24 November 2021

Black Stars midfielder Edmund Addo will be in action for FC Sheriff Tiraspol tonight when they welcome Real Madrid for the return fixture at the Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena in Group D of the Champions League.

Addo's performance against the 13-time European champions at the Santiago Bernabeu shot him into prominence after Sheriff recorded a 1-2 success against Real Madrid.

The holding midfielder must however avoid committing a bookable offence this time around as he risks being suspended for their last game away to Shakhtar Donetsk.

Edmund Addo picked up a second yellow card in their 1-3 loss to Inter at home. This comes on the back of the penalty he conceded at the Bernabeu.

After suffering back-to-back defeats against Inter,  Sheriff must get a result they lock horns with Madrid and hope Shakhtar Donetsk beat Inter to boost their chances of advancing to the knockout stages.

Sheriff are third in Group D with six points, three below Real Madrid in first place and one behind Inter Milan.
