Real – PSG: match preview Champions League

Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu will compete with the French PSG in the first leg of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League.

“Royal club” pretty stormy for this season. The team of Zinedine Zidane failed to win their group, losing first place in the Quartet of the London Tottenham. Real first played a draw with “spurs” (1:1), and in the second leg and is lost (1:3).

PSG managed triumphat in the group stage, but only on additional indicators. After six matches, the Parisians had equal points with FC Bayern to 15 points scored. Add that to PSG in the first meeting dealt with Bayern (3:0), but in a re-match of the Champions Germany were able to take revenge, defeating the team of Unai emery with a score of (3:1).

It is worth noting that the Champions League is probably the only tournament where Zidane and his team can correct the situation. Real flew out of the Cup of Spain on a modest Leganés, and in the championship is fourth place, behind the Catalan of Barcelona with 17 points.

Sure PSG is leading the French championship, ahead of nearest competitor by 12 points.

Also note that the last official match between real Madrid and PSG held in 2015 in the group stage of the Champions League. In that match, Madrid have won a narrow victory (1:0) thanks to a goal by Nacho.

Bookmakers from bet 365 does not see clear favorite in the first match, but had a slight preference for real. So, bets on Madrid victory are accepted with factor 2.25. The success of PSG is estimated at 2.79. The draw is 3.75.

Editorial opinion for real’s Champions League – last chance to save a disastrous season. We can expect that the motivation of real Madrid will be prohibitive. For star players, PSG Champions League, first and foremost, a tournament where you can show his class against strong opponents. It is no secret that the French Ligue 1 is inferior to the top European leagues. Also the bosses probably spend astronomical money for transfers, because I’m waiting for the Champions League trophy in Paris. To determine the favorite in the match real Madrid and PSG is not easy, but the first meeting will give a slight advantage to the home team.

We will remind that the first match between real Madrid and PSG will take place on 14 February in the capital of Spain at the Santiago Bernabeu. The meeting will begin at 21:45 Kyiv time.
