Santiago Solari leads Real Madrid training as interim manager looks for third straight win against Viktoria Plzen - in pictures

Defending champions continue their Uefa Champions League campaign with a trip to the Czech Republic to face Viktoria Plzen

Real Madrid continue their Uefa Champions League title defence with a trip to the Czech Republic to face Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday as interim manager Santiago Solari looks to claim a third straight win.

Solari was promoted from Madrid's reserve team, Castilla, last month after manager Julen Lopetegui was sacked after just three months in charge. Madrid have started encouragingly under former player Solari, easing to victory in the Copa del Rey before a 2-0 home win over Valladolid in the Primera Liga.

Now the Spanish giants turn their attentions to a competition they have called their own in recent seasons. Madrid, who have won the Champions League an unprecedented three straight years, sit second in Group G but level on points with leaders Roma.

Ahead of their clash with Plzen, Solari led a training session of his Madrid squad as the defending champions look to take a big step towards qualifying for the knockout stages.
