Sam Hendry previews Real Vs PSG
The standout tie of the round comes from the Bernabeu where two of the favourites for the competition meet in Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain
Madrid’s issues this season have been well documented and unless Zinedine Zidane can guide them to an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League triumph then his time in charge will most likely come to an end.
Cristiano Ronaldo has, by his standards, a paltry 11 La Liga goals this season, but seven of those have come in the last four games, an indication that he’s coming into form at just the right time for Real.
PSG, meanwhile, are cantering their way to the French title, but their Qatari owners have more than just domestic glory on their minds and it is on this stage where they will expect to see a return on their £200 million investment in Neymar.
Real have only lost once in the Champions League at the Bernabeu since 2011, and a home win could be the bet tonight, although I expect this tie to remain in the balance going into the second leg.
