Real Madrid vs Paris Saint-Germain Preview

Real Madrid vs Paris Saint-Germain

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

Date: 14th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Real Madrid may have won the last two Champions Leagues but this season has been terrible for them as they have failed to live up to the hype they created for themselves.

The Champions League remains the only trophy they can win this season after they were knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Leganes last month and are already behind Barcelona by a huge 16 points in the La Liga title race.

They have won four, drawn three and lost two of their last nine games heading into this match.

Their home does not seem to affect their results positively as they have lost 3 of the last 6 competitive games they played at home.

PSG spent so much money to sign Neymar and Kylian Mbappe last summer so that they can come out victorious in games like this.

They lost the Ligue 1 title last season but they are currently top of the league table with 12 points separating them from the 2nd positioned team.

They have won 14 of their last 15 matches in all competitions, won 5 of their 6 group stage matches and have scored a total of 20 goals in their last six games.

PSG have also won 16 of their 21 away matches this season.

Neymar will also be looking to show Los Merengues what they can expect if they signed him next summer.
