Paris Saint-Germain vs Real Madrid Preview

Paris Saint-Germain vs Real Madrid (1:3)

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Parc des Princes

Date: 6th March 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

PSG headed into the first leg of this game high on confidence as they knew Real Madrid had been struggling in all competitions this season, yet the French league leaders failed to win, despite taking the lead in the eventual 3-1 loss.

All hope is not lost yet, but they have since lost Neymar to a long term injury and Kylian Mbappe is a doubt for this match.

They however, have depth in attack with Edison Cavani well rested and Angel Di Maria on form, they could get a needed 2-0 win in this game.

PSG have scored 5 goals in their last two matches.

Real Madrid are back as favourites to win a third straight Champions League title after winning the first leg of this match.

They are also back to form in all competitions even though they can effectively forget the La Liga title this season.

Real have won 6 of their last 7 games, scoring 23 goals in the process.

Madrid’s defence however, still concedes some cheap goals with 4.7 goals on average scored by both teams in their last 11 games in all competitions.

They have won 4, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 6 meetings with PSG.
