PSG hosts Real Madrid
PSG hosts Real Madrid at the Parc des Princes in one of the big derbies of the Champions League group stage. We expect a really exciting game between these two giants on Wednesday. Here are our Champions League predictions for this clash.
PSG continue to chase their first trophy in the Champions League. Last season the French club once again got eliminated in the knockout phase, losing against Manchester United after a late penalty kick in Paris. Despite of this, Thomas Tuchel recieved the board’s trust to continue manage the squad.
PSG and Real Madrid are the two big faourites in Group A, so they will fight for the first place. The good news for the French side is the return of Neymar, who showed his class during the home game against Strasbourg during the weekend. The Brazilian star was booed by the crowd, but at the end of the game he scored an amazing winner with a beautiful bycicle kick. Meanwhile the new signing Mauro Icardi made his debut for PSG, entering the pitch as a substitute.
Thomas Tuchel’s biggest problem remains the injury of Kylian Mbappe, who is still recovering.
Real Madrid are once again managed by the man who led them to three consecutive triumphs in the Champions League – Zinedine Zidane. Now everyone in the Spanish capital hopes that Zidane will inspire Los Blancos to return at the top of Europe.
Cristiano Ronaldo is not a part of Real Madrid’s squad anymore, but Los Blancos have a new superstar now. This is Eden Hazard, who was finally signed from Chelsea after few years of speculations. Hazard missed few games in La Liga because of injury, but he returned on the pitch during the win over Levante in the weekend.
In our Champions League predictions we expect a thrilling game between PSG and Real Madrid on Wednesday. One of these two giants can make the first step towards the first place in the group.
