Real changes for Olympiakos

Real Madrid are set to welcome back Wesley Sneijder and Pepe to their squad for the Group C Champions League match with Olympiakos. The two players joined Real Madrid during the summer and have been out with injuries.

Holland playmaker Sneijder missed the 2-0 Primera Liga defeat at Sevilla at the weekend, but he has been declared fit for the Olympiakos visit.

Whereas, Brazilian defender Pepe returns for the first time after facing two months on the sidelines with a knee injury.

However, Real will miss vice-captain Guti, who did not travel with the squad due to a strained hamstring.

Winger Arjen Robben and deputy goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek remain sidelined as they are still recovering from their respective injuries.

Defense duo Michel Salgado and Christoph Metzelder were omitted from the squad by manager Bernd Schuster for technical reasons.
