Real Madrid and PSG to finish all square

On Wednesday night, Real Madrid and PSG go head-to-head at the Santiago Bernabeu in the Champions League last-16 first leg.

The two teams are considered potential candidates to lift the trophy this season, but one of them will exit at the last-16 stage of the competition.

In truth, Real Madrid needs to do well in the Champions League, with the defence of their La Liga crown all but over. Zinedine Zidane’s side have been inconsistent of late in all competitions. However, Los Blancos recorded a 5-2 victory over Real Sociedad last time out to head into this game in high spirits.

The European champions have a very respectable recent record in the Champions League, though, as they have won five of their last seven games in the competition. The home side have also lost just two of their last 20 games in Europe’s elite competition.

The team from the Spanish capital also have a formidable home record in the Champions League, as they are 18 games unbeaten at the Bernabeu.

PSG have swept all before them of late, winning 14 of their last 15 games in all competitions. Unai Emery’s side look to be running away with the Ligue one title and are expected to go deep into this competition.

The French giants have a decent recent record in this competition, winning six of their last eight games in the competition. The visitors won their first five group games before losing their final game against Bavarian giants Bayern Munich.

The visitor’s recent away record in this competition is an inconsistent one, as they have won two, lost two and drawn one of their last five games on their travels in Europe. A big feature of recent PSG games is goals and it is no different in the Champions League with over 2.5 goals scored in their last seven outings in this competition.

Forebet predicts that this game will be a high scoring and entertaining draw, which will surely suit the visitors better than the home side.
