Real Madrid visit Paris Saint-Germain’s Parc des Princes with a 3-1 lead after their good performance at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, PSG proved to be capable of being very competitive against Los Blancos and Zidane’s men will need to be very careful and play with focus if they want to earn the ticket to the next round of the Champions League.
Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Marcelo finally recovered in time for the game and their presence should increase Madrid’s chances of keeping their 3-1 lead. On the other hand, PSG’s main star Neymar Jr had surgery on his foot last week and will miss the game. Former Real Madrid player Angel Di Maria will replace the Brazilian attacker in Unai Emery’s starting lineup.
Both teams face heavy pressure on this game. Madrid can’t afford to spend the next three months of the season without a chance of actually winning a title, while this PSG team was built to compete for the Champions League and falling in the Round of 16 would be a massive failure, no matter if they faced the reigning champions.
