Real Madrid vs PSG by Jimeno

Regarding the LaLiga race title, there's no doubt that the season is already lost for the players of Real Madrid but they still need to show determination and get as high as possible position in the end, securing themselves Champions League ticket for the next season as well as quickly as possible.

After last weekend's victory at home over Real Sociedad 5:2, the team stands at fourth position with a point less than third placed Valencia and five more than Europa League set Villarreal. It was a good way to introduce restart of the Champions League, since Real made a perfect first halftima and had four goals lead thanks to two goals from Ronaldo, one from Lucas and Kroos.

Naturally, tempo was lowered down in the second halftime with the guests having their chances as well, rducing via Jon temporarily in 74th, while Ronaldo scored this third in 80th minute just to see Illaramendi reducing again in 83rd minute when it didn't matter a lot.

Home side should be playing in a version of 4-3-3 formation with Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema as forwards. Right back Daniel Carvajal (15/0) is suspended for the first leg with central back Jesus Vallejo (3/0) remaining injured. Midfielder Casemiro was rested during the weekend and should start here, similar to forward Gareth Bale.

PSG is cruising to a title this season as the side looked quite superior in comparison to others and even though they do have setbacks here and there, most recently three weeks ago when they suffered defeat away to Lyon, there is no doubt that they stand out as the strongest and most superior side in the Ligue 1.

Last weekend they have walked away with a 1:0 victory away to Toulouse in a game where they actually probably tried to preserve the energy, but still were completely superior and dominant from the first minute, reachign the victory thanks to goal from Neymar in 68th minute, while the winning margin should have been even bigger.

The side now stands out first with twelve points more than second placed Monaco and a 21-2-2 record with only a miracle stopping them to claim another title event though there are still thirteen rounds to be played. Domination in France is quite confirmed, with the attention turning slowly to Champions League where they still remain without biggest impact so far.

The Parisians are set to play in a version of 4-3-3 formation with Mbappe, Cavani and Neymar as forwards. Edinson Cavani didn't feature during the weekend, but should be ready for this one from the first minute. Players like Thiago Silva, Marco Verratti and Layvin Kurzawa are expected to get back for the visiting team after missing last weekend.

  • There have been over 2.5 goals scored in PSG's last 13 games (UEFA Champions League).

Real Madrid is far below desired standards this season, however in my eyes the team is returning to positive path just when it was needed the most. Parisians are looking very strong this season, truth to be told in a bit weaker domestic championship, however I don't see them risking a lot here.

The game itself has goal written all over it, but it can easily turn out to be a bit more of the tactical game since it's just a first leg and under such circumstances I give advantage to Real. They weren't till now in the season what we were used them to see, however this is one of the last chances to bring some joy to their fans and even though PSG remains very strong on paper, French side is yet to confirm their power when it's needed the most, something in which the Spanish team is so good at.

    PSG are not the best away team coz their opponents are over performing most of time. This will be the case again i think. PSG will blow Real easily in Paris but this game in Madrid should be for Real. I see also a PSG more defensive than usual tonight so betting goals could be dangerous.
    Real HT/FT or Real btts are the best betting options for me. gL

  2. Yullaw says:

    @guardiolix I think suggesting that PSG will blow away Real in Paris is a bit presumptuous. Real despite their recent struggles are a quality side and it is going to be very close at this level. PSG are walking away with the French title as there is no competition there. I think when it comes to betting you should leave your emotions aside as your nickname suggests you may be a barca pro and anti Madrid. Letting emotions in might misguide your judgment for betting.

    I see over 3.5 goal line here……..

    @Yullaw, how can I be out of control and suggest to bet for Real Madrid tonight if i an a anti-Madrid? Please read carefully and remove ur emotions too
    Yes i think PSG will eliminate Real, as they have 2nd leg in Paris and they play very good football at home. that s why i wrote “blow” but no disrespect to Real. Real has horrible defence this year and they will be facing the best attack in Europe. no need to be Einstein to give PSG an edge.

  5. guardiolix says:

    @Collins this a big point of betting. YOU & ME knows the stats but so do EMERY & ZIDANE. So they will manage something to control the opponent. i will not be surprised if PSG starts with LASS which is in fact a 3rd CB but not a real CM.
    so with the quality of both attacks we are hoping for an entertaining evening but in a 2 legs tie, maybe keeping a clean sheet is as important as scoring. Also price given for >3.5 Very low.

  6. Yullaw says:

    @guardiolix giving PSG “an edge” and PSG “blowing away” Real Madrid are two entirely different things. To clear any misunderstanding, giving an edge means winning with a small margin while blowing a team means winning by some 3, 4, 5 goals margin.
