Real Madrid vs Paris Saint Germain
Who? Real Madrid vs Paris Saint Germain in Group A of Matchweek 5 of the UEFA Champions League 2019/20.
Where? Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid, Spain
When? 20:00 GMT, Tuesday 26th November 2019
Two European giants clash at the Bernabeu in Group A as Real Madrid host a Paris Saint Germain team that have already guaranteed a place in the next round.
Zinedine Zidane has gotten through a sticky patch of form to ease pressure on him. Outside of a goalless draw with Real Betis, the hosts have managed five wins out of the last six including a 6-0 drooling of Galatasaray in the Champions League. The goals have been coming from forward Karim Benzema and Galacticos captain Sergio Ramos. The central defender is the club’s penalty taker and has four goals this season. A win would seal their place in the next round. However, a defeat and a win for Club Brugge against Galatasaray would see the last spot up for grabs for both clubs.
Paris Saint Germain
For Thomas Tuchel, his PSG side have remarkably not drawn a single game this season in all competitions. 15 wins in their last 18 games sees the French powerhouse club clear at the top of Ligue 1 and their Champions League group. Mauro Icardi is scoring for fun lately, whilst former Galatico Angel di Maria has been excellent this season. Most impressively is the defensive record. PSG have maintained so far in the Champions League, not conceding a single goal. We think that could change against their opponents, however.
Real Madrid (13/10* to Win): The Galacticos will be without Lucas Vazquez, Nacho Fernandez, Marco Asensio and James Rodriguez. We expect in-form forward Karim Benzema to lead the front line for the hosts..
Paris Saint Germain (15/8* to Win): PSG will not have Italian midfielder Marco Verratti because of a knee injury. Doubtful players for this game include Ander Herrera and Thilo Kehrer.
