PSG Vs Real Madrid Match Predictions: In this titanic clash between Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid, we shall look at the pivotal three players.
Paris Saint Germain will face Real Madrid in the opening day of the Champions League. It will be a tough one to predict as the current form suggests the French outfit, while the history pinpoints the record Champions League holders.
The Parisians will be hoping to lift the Champions League this year after spending hefty money over the last few years. The French side also did some good piece of business in the summer transfer window. There were some incomings and managed to keep Neymar, who is pivotal to their hopes of competing for this competition.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, had a disastrous campaign by getting knocked out by Ajax in the Quarterfinals. The Los Blancos have a flurry of titles over the last six years and could repeat the same feet if their new signings kick off their new endeavours in a good way. They have made good signings, but their form has been a concern of late.
Unsurprisingly, PSG are the favourites in this game because of their work in the transfer market. There’s only a marginal difference between these two sides and it is a tough one to predict.
As we discuss this game, we shall look at three players who could change the game on their own.
#3 Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
Karim Benzema is the most undermined Real Madrid player. The Frenchman has the third-most goals in the Champions League history and has a good record since the turn of the New Year. Additionally, he has also scored four goals from opening four La Liga games this season.
There’s no shortage of supply for the former Lyon striker. He had the problem carrying the ball from the midfield department which will be resolved by Eden Hazard currently. The Belgian is arguably the best dribbler in the world currently and he could set up his teammate more often than not.
Apart from showing clinical nature in front of the goal, Benzema is the first-choice penalty taker. He could score goals from the open play and penalties too.
