Betting Prediction: REAL MADRID – PSG 14.02.2018

Betting Prediction for REAL MADRID – PSG

Both teams want to retain all their qualifying chances before the second leg. No benefit in terms of motivation

State of form

Rather disappointing this season, Real Madrid, the two-time champion in the Champions League, was second only to Group H behind Tottenham but ahead of Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia. At home, the Merengues triumphed against APOEL (3-0) and Dortmund (3-2), but they were held in check by Tottenham (1-1). Released in the title race in La Liga and blocked in the 4th place in the standings, Zinedine Zidane’s men still remain on a nice win last weekend, acquired in Bernabeu against a weak team of Real Sociedad (5- 2).
PSG have met expectations to date and finished first in Group B, ahead of Bayern Munich, Celtic and Anderlecht. After having scored five successes in their first five games, Neymar’s partners fell to Bayern Munich on the last day (1-3). Largely at the top of the standings in Ligue 1, with now 12 lengths on Monaco, 2nd, the Parisians have just scored 6 successes in all competitions and they quietly mastered Toulouse away on Saturday (0-1), with a Neymar already elusive. PSG advantage on the form

Headcount for REAL MADRID – PSG

Virtually all, Real Madrid is only deprived of its right side Carvajal (suspended), which should be replaced by Nacho Fernandez, while the little used Vallejo and Cabellos are uncertain. Otherwise, it’s classic for the Madrilenians with Navas in goal, Varane-Ramos in central hinge, Marcelo on the left of the defense, the Casemiro-Kroos-Modric trio in the middle and the BBC in attack. Benzema is not successful at the moment, but Cristiano Ronaldo has scored a hat-trick against Real Sociedad last Saturday.
Unlike previous years, PSG has no cadre in the infirmary for this shock Champions League. Preserved against Toulouse, striker Cavani and captain Thiago Silva are back in the group, as the side Kurzawa and the goal 2 Trapp. Only the aging Motta remains apart. 2 uncertainties hover at the starting eleven, sentinel position and slightly in attack given the great benefits of Di Maria. However, the team should strongly resemble the one lined up in the Bayern Munich round robin (3-1 defeat with Draxler holder in the middle). The discussed Aréola will start in the cages, Dani Alves and Kurzawa (more experienced in C1) also on the sides of the defense, just like the TS-Marquinhos hinge (despite an excellent Kimpembe). In the middle, Diarra should accompany Rabiot and Verratti in the middle, leaving Draxler and Lo Celso on the bench. Finally, with the return of Cavani, the excellent Di Maria should give way to Mbappé on the right side of the attack and let the MCN start the game. Intense against Toulouse in the 2nd half, Neymar arrives in full flurry in the 8th finals and can count on a rested Cavani. No advantage on paper
Probable compositions of Real – PSG:
Real Madrid: Navas – Nacho, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo – Modric, Casemiro, Kroos – Bale, Benzema, Cristiano.
PSG: Areola – Daniel Alves, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Berchiche (or Kurzawa) – Rabiot, Diarra, Verratti – Neymar, Cavani, Mbappe. PSG advantage on paper
Given the weakness of Real Madrid’s defense for several weeks, PSG can rely on a Neymar often decisive in the Champions League to ensure a good result in Bernabeu Wednesday. PSG Victory
