Real Madrid host PSG trying to earn redemption from their last meeting with the French team, where Los Blancos lost 3-0 even though Mbappe, Neymar and Cavani were all injured.

This match could very well be Gareth Bale’s return to Real Madrid’s starting XI. The Welshman made an impact off the bench against Real Sociedad and tried to prove a point. He might not have the support of Madrid’s fans at the Bernabeu, but he can still be an interesting option for Zidane.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos; Bale, Hazard, Benzema

PSG predicted XI: Navas, Meunier, Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat, Marquinhos, Verratti, Gueye, Di Maria, Mbappe, Neymar.

PSG have dominated this Group Stage and will win the group if they take care of business at home against Galatasaray, no matter what happens tonight. Still, Real Madrid must take this game very seriously so that they make a statement and gain confidence for the crucial El Clasico, which will be played in just three weeks.
