PSG vs Real Madrid Prediction
PSG is a team that entirely runs on star-power, and without several of their major players, and that too up front, the scales are tipped in favor of the hosts. In addition, the former Champions League winners seem slowly getting into the mood.
Although both Real and PSG exited at the round-of-16 stage last season despite winning away from home in their respective ties, their recent Champions League records are in complete contrast. Real, of course, have lifted the trophy four times in the past six seasons, whereas PSG simply cannot get past the quarter-finals despite their huge financial resources.
At one point this summer, Neymar looked certain to leave Paris for the probable destination of Barcelona – and the disruption that caused, together with injury problems, meant his injury time winner against Strasbourg came at the end of his first game of the season.
The Brazil striker returned for his country with recent appearances against Colombia and Peru, but was booed by his club’s fans at the Parc des Princes before proving their salvation with his last-gasp overhead kick to seal the three points.
