Real Madrid look to overturn their bad omen against PSG when the two expendables of European football go head-to-head at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night.
The teams last met at the Champions League in the 2015/16 season’s group stage. Madrid got the better of the French heavyweights with a goal-less away draw and a narrow 1-0 home win. Madrid eventually went to lift the trophy from there and repeated the feat next year as well.
This is PSG’s sixth appearance at the knockout phase on the bounce and they managed to go through on four occasions. But at the same stage last season, they were at the receiving end of a dramatic come back from Real’s arch rivals FC Barcelona. Despite taking an insatiable 4-0 lead in the first leg, PSG stumbled to a 6-1 defeat in the second leg at the Camp Nou.
Real Madrid likely starting XI:
Navas, Nacho, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Kroos, Casemiro, Modric, Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo
PSG likely starting XI:
Kevin Trapp, Alves, T. Silva, Marquinhos, Kurzawa, Pastore, Motta, Verratti, Neymar, Cavani, Mbappe
Double Chance – Draw or PSG for 1.62 odds.
Under 2.5 full-time goals for 2.80 odds is the value bet.
Wow what a match to enjoy on Valentine’s Day. In fact, i told my woman we won’t be able to see 🤣
Cristiano Ronaldo will need to produce a mouth-watering display to guide Real Madrid to a match i think they will win.
All eyes will be on Neymar & Mbappe too.
