Champions League PSG – REAL MADRID
PSG must go back a handicap of 2 goals. Real Madrid will try to manage their advantage. No benefit in terms of motivation
State of form
Defeated 3-1 on the pitch of Real Madrid in the first leg, PSG has no choice but to achieve the perfect match to validate his place in the quarter-finals on Tuesday. However, since the failure of Bernabeu, teammates Edinson Cavani have lined 4 success in all competitions, making a little forget the big injury of Neymar. Indeed, the Parisians have respectively defeated Strasbourg (5-2), OM 2 times in a row (3-0 in L1 and 3-0 in cup) and Troyes last weekend (0- 2), with a largely reworked team. Leaders of the standings in Ligue 1 with 14 units ahead of Monaco and well to win the 2 national cups, Unai Emery players clearly play their season on this meeting.
Winner of 6 of the last 7 games, Real Madrid is working very hard at the moment and intends to preserve its advantage at Parc des Princes this week. Released in the title race and the fight for third place in the Liga, Zinedine Zidane’s men are neck and neck with Valencia in the standings. Surprised on the pitch of Espanyol last Tuesday (1-0), Karim Benzema’s partners were immediately reassured last Saturday, by knocking Getafe home (3-1), including a double of CR7. Light PSG advantage on the form
