(February 13, 2018): One of the most important matches of Champions League 2018 will be played between defending Champion Real Madrid (Spain) and Paris Saint Germain (France) on Thursday.
A much-awaited (knockout) match of champions league is going to be played on RM’s home ground Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.Star-studded Real Madrid is struggling this season with 4 defeats in La Liga, knocked out of Copa Del Rey and a defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in Champion league’s group stage that would definitely be favourable for PSG.
PSG is currently one the most dangerous teams in the world after signing Brazilian star Neymar from Barcelona and 19-year-old dribbler Golden Boy Kylian Mbappe, they are on the top of their national football league (Ligue 1), PSG’s strike force comprising Neymar, Edinson Cavani, and Mbappe could be tough to handle for the struggling defense of Real Madrid.Frenchman Zidane’s Real Madrid could fight back as they have done in the last match of La Liga with a 5-2 win over Real Sociedad wherein Fifa best player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo scored a perfect hat-trick.
These results would not be a good sign for PSG because Ronaldo in this season struggled with bad form but gradually he is getting his form back. He is top scorer at CL with 9 goals.PSG along with strong attack they have German attacking midfielder Julian Draxler and star Argentinian Angel Di Maria on the bench and on the other hand Real Madrid after selling James Rodrigues and Alvaro Morata, are good at only starting 11 they don’t have any star player on the bench.
The match will be held on coming Thursday at 12.45 am PST.
