After Kylian Mbappe’s late goal gave PSG a 1-0 win in first leg over Real Madrid, the stage is now set for the all-important second leg in Spain. There is only one goal separating the two sides with 90 minutes left, which means that the tie is still very widely open. With a place in quarter-finals of Champions League up for grabs and some big stars in action, who will prevail? It is going to be one of the matches of season and fans can expect a thrilling game of football between Real Madrid and PSG.
Real Madrid: Casemiro and Ferland Mendy won’t be available for selection as they have been suspended for this clash for receiving their third yellow card of competition in previous leg. Meanwhile, Toni Kross has been suffering from hamstring problem and is 50-50 for this match.
Paris Saint-Germain: While Achraf Hakimi is expected to return to side, Sergio Ramos might continue to stay out because of fitness issues. Ander Herrera is also a doubtful starter against Real Madrid having been suffering from a muscular problem and an eye infection.
Thibaut Courtois has been a rock at goal for Real Madrid this season and with the match being played at Santiago Bernaneu, he is expected to come up with another brilliant performance in front of home fans. The centre-backs of both sides will be key in this match and all of them have the ability to chip in with a crucial goal as well, which makes their inclusion in your side an important factor.
Marco Verratti, Neymar and Luka Modric will be the midfielders to watch out for but all eyes will be on the four star strikers who will have the onus to change the game. While Karim Benzema will be key for Real Madrid, Kylian Mbappe will be hoping to repeat what he did in first leg. However, one cannot rule out Lionel Messi and Vinicius Jr from putting up a show as well.
