Real Madrid drew PSG in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 draw which took place in Nyon today.

The opening leg will be played at the Bernabeu while the tie will be decided in Paris.

Los Blancos are defending the title they conquered last season and will need to play much better if they want to find success this year. Still, they have time to turn things around and gain some momentum ahead of this tie, so Zidane’s men will surely be hoping to improve their performances.

All things considered, Real Madrid should probably be considered the favorites to win the tie, but they will still have to work very hard and complete a solid all around performance if they want to be in the next round of the European competition. Mbappe and Neymar are the two players to watch in this tie as they will provide a very tough challenge for Madrid’s defensive line.
