Real Madrid will travel to France this week, to take on hosts Paris Saint-Germain for its first leg in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season.
Real Madrid will consider itself a bit unlucky, as it has to face the might of PSG at such an early stage of the tournament. However, Carlo Ancelotti's team has performed well this season and will be feeling fairly confident going into this crucial game. The team has lost just one match in the group stages, and as a result topped the Group D tables, ahead of Inter Milan.
In fact, the team won both, home and away fixtures against the formidable Italian club, including a 2-0 win in the last match of the group stage. In La Liga too, Real Madrid is currently sitting at the top of the points table, enjoying a 4 point lead over second-placed Sevilla. The only blip in its form has come by the way of a 0-1 loss at the hands of Athletic Club in the Copa del Rey quarterfinals earlier this month. But the team will be looking to put that loss behind, and focus on its upcoming games.
Paris Saint-Germain has played exceptionally in Ligue 1 season and is currently on the top spot with an almost unassailable lead of 16 points over second-placed Marseille. However, when it comes to the Champions League, Mauricio Pochettino would have liked his team to have performed better. The team finished second in Group A, with just 3 wins in 6 games.
The team’s confidence will, however, be buoyed by its 1-0 win over Rennes in its last game. Looking at the positives, all its 3 victories in the group stage have come in home games, and the Parisians will be keen on maintaining that record in this game too.
Match prediction and betting tips for Paris Saint-Germain vs Real Madrid Champions League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Parc des Princes, Paris on 15th February 2022.
Real Madrid and PSG are two of the strongest teams in this season, and this game will undoubtedly be intensely fought by both teams. With players like Neymar Jr., Lionel Messi, and Kylian Mbappe, PSG have been the favorites to lift the trophy which has alluded them so far. Real Madrid on the other hand, with Luca Modric, Marcelo, Hazard, and Benzema would definitely like to extend its all-time record of winning the Championship for the 14th time.
The visitors are eagerly awaiting updates on Karim Benzema, who is nursing an injured hamstring. Ferland Mendy and Mariano Diaz too are unlikely to make the trip to Paris. As for the hosts, Sergio Ramos is unlikely to feature due to a calf injury, while Edouard Michut and Alexandre Letellier have tested positive for coronavirus.
This will no doubt be one of the most engaging games of the Championship, and we expect both the teams to strike at least once during the course of play. But given the fact that the visitors have won just 1 game in the last 4 across competitions, and the stellar record of the hosts, it is likely that the Parisians may come out on top.
Bet on a Paris Saint-Germain win.
