Real Madrid visit Paris Saint-Germain's Parc des Princes in what will be their first game of the 2019-2020 edition of the UEFA Champions League.

It's an explosive match between two of the best clubs in European football, but the fans will definitely miss Mbappe, Neymar, Cavani, Ramos, Modric or Marcelo, who will all miss the game.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Militao, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, James, Bale, Hazard, Benzema.

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

Even without those players mentioned above, both sides have tremendous quality. Zinedine Zidane will most likely deploy the Bale, Hazard and Benzema attacking trio for the first time this season. Those three attackers will be expected to start most games and lead the team's offensive line this year.

It will also be interesting to see what Mendy and Militao can do. Real Madrid have been defending poorly for quite some time and those two players might be able to offer something different.

All in all, this game has all the ingredients to be a very exciting one, not only for the fans of both teams but also to every football fan around the globe.
