Everything is on the line ahead of the final game in group B, as king of the tournament Real Madrid, who currently sit third, take on Borussia Mönchengladbach who is only one point ahead.

Financially the competition between the two is not even remotely close, as Real Madrid almost have four-times the turnover and wage-bill of the German-side.

The brand of Real Madrid is naturally significantly larger, as Mönchengladbach have a SoMe following of less than 1 per cent of Real Madrid’s.
