After beating Paris Saint Germain in Spain, Real Madrid will now head to France for the second leg of this fixture. Critics and analysts debated after the first fixture that Real Madrid has not been their best to lead the fixture3-1 on aggregate but the two extra home goals have given them a big advantage to come out on top in this fixture as well. For Paris Saint Germain, this game is all they have for their UCL dream because their star player Neymar Jr is doubtful because of an injury he picked up recently so the visitors would have a sigh of relief but the likes of Di Maria, Cavani and Mbappe are expected to give some threats to the Spanish defense. However, the Galacticos would put all the firepower they have in this game so that they march to their 13th UCL title over the years.

Paris Saint Germain:
Brazilian star Neymar is injured and would not play this match and he will be replaced by the Argentine Di Maria. In the first leg of this fixture, he was expected for a homecoming but he was not played in that game and as destiny would call it, Angel Di Maria will be facing off their former team mates. Kylian Mbappe was rested in PSG’s last game because of the ankle injury he picked up and is doubtful to feature in this game. Alphonse Areola and Marquinhos would also remain doubtful because PSG would try to do something out of the box to keep their UEFA Champions League dream alive. Marco veratti, Edinson Cavani and Dani Alves were rested in PSG’s last game so that they can start off fresh in this game from the start. Thiago Motta, Lass Diarra and Giovani Lo Celso fight for the central midfield starting berth in this game.
Dani Carvajal is back for the second leg of this fixture after missing out on the first because of his suspension. Toni Kroos, Luca Modric and Marcelo were injured but fortunately they are back in training and is expected that all of them would feature in the game. Gareth Bale, Isco, Lucas Vasquez and Marco Asensio would be the backup for this game if not feature from the start.
Real Madrid – Navas (GK), Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Casemiro, Modric, Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo
Paris Saint Germain – Areola (GK), Kurzawa, Silva, Marquinhos, Alves, Rabiot, Motta, Verratti, Mbappe, Cavani, Di Maria
*G – Goals, A – Assists
For the home team, missing out on the Brazilian wonder for this game is a very severe blow to their attack and also a couple of A listed players who would miss out on this game because of their respected injuries have left the home team, high and dry. The visitors would walk out of the dressing room as the favourites and one away goal, if they can score early in the game all dreams of Paris Saint Germain for the UEFA Champions League would come to an end. Our bet is on the away team for this game.
