PSG hosts Real Madrid at the Parc des Princes in an exciting clash from the Champions League 1/8-finals. We don’t have any doubts it’s going to be an amazing game. Let’s preview it in these football tips today. Here we go!
For PSG it’s becoming an obsession to win the Champions League for a first time. The French club spent a lot of money to do in the last decade, but so far – without much luck. Last summer the club even acquired the services of Lionel Messi, but so far PSG look kind of shaky and inconsistent – something which worries the fans before facing a team like Real Madrid.
PSG’s main problem before this game is Neymar’s fitness. It’s still not entirely clear if the Brazilian star will be ready to play on Tuesday. If Neymar is not ready to play once again he will be replaced by Angel Di Maria alongside Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
Real Madrid perform strongly since the return of Carlo Ancelotti at the club. The Italian manager led the team to the first place in La Liga and he’s doing a terrific job so far. He already won the Champions League for Real Madrid in 2014, but you can be sure he’d like to do it again.
Real Madrid’s primary weapons in attack remain the captain Karim Benzema and the Brazilian wonderkid Vinicius Jr. – these two are in a great shape since the start of the season. Benzema is scoring a lot while Vinicius brings an extraordinary danger thanks to his pace and dribbling ability. PSG’s defense should be extra careful with these two.
That’s the football tips today for the Champions League 1/8-finals fixture between PSG and Real Madrid. These two teams are among the contenders to win the trophy, but only one of them will move forward.
