Real Madrid vs PSG Preview and Prediction:
|Competition||UEFA Champions League|
|Start Date||14 Feb 2018 – 19:45 GMT|
real Madrid welcome PSG facing the very real threat of elimination from the Champions League for the first time in 3 years.
A dreadful defence in their Liga crown sees them in a fight to qualify for next season’s Champions League with the pressure ever-mounting on Zinedine Zidane after years of near dominance.
PSG, meanwhile, have never been in better form to win Europe’s top prize and claiming the scalp of real Madrid’s historic back-to-back winning squad will show a huge hurdle jumped.
HEAD TO HEAD
Daniel Carvajal is suspended for the first leg, giving Zinedine Zidane a actual problem at right-back up against Neymar. Nacho is predicted to deputise as opposed to Achraf Hakimi.
Casemiro was rested on the weekend and will go back to the beginning XI on Wednedsay, while the same is also true of Gareth Bale.
Thiago Silva, Marco Verratti and Layvin Kurzawa are anticipated to go back for the away side at the Bernabeu after sitting out at the weekend.
Dani Alves and Thomas Meunier compete for a beginning spot at right-back, while Angel di Maria will have to accept a place on the bench.
Giovani Lo Celso has played well in midfield and it might be a surprise if Unai Emery dropped him in favour of Thiago Motta or Lassana Diarra.
