Real Madrid vs PSG betting tips? When Paris Saint-Germain were founded in 1970, Real Madrid had already won six European Cups. Some 48 years later, the French capital has combined with Qatari money to challenge the kings of the continent’s premier club competition in a huge last-16 tie.
A disastrous La Liga season sees Los Blancos fourth in the table, 17 points behind leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona. But they are the defending Champions League winners and PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot accepts the Spanish giants are the more experienced of the two teams.
“Real Madrid will want to save their season and will be extra motivated.
“They have great experience in this competition, while we have less. In my opinion, this is a 50-50 tie,” said Rabiot.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the top scorer in the history of the Champions League with 114 goals. The Real maestro has netted 19 goals in his last 11 games in the competition, including in every single game this season.
At the other end of the pitch is a man who dreams of replicating, and surpassing, Ronaldo: Neymar.
The most expensive player in history, he left Barcelona to escape Lionel Messi’s shadow and is now the absolute leader in Paris, on red-hot form and with the weight of the club on his shoulders exactly like he must have wanted.
PSG scored 25 goals in this season’s group stages, a record in the group phase of the competition. But have lost four of their last six away games in the Champions League knockout stages, winning one (2-1 v Chelsea in March 2016) and drawing one.
Los Blancos are unbeaten in 17 European games at the Bernabeu. Real Madrid, in particular, have looked vulnerable defensively this season, keeping just one clean sheet in their last nine matches in all competitions and only holding APOEL – both home and away – in the group stage.
PSG will certainly feel they can claim an away goal, but they were beaten 3-1 at Bayern Munich in their toughest away game of the season and doubts remain about their effectiveness as a defensive unit.
The form shown by both teams this season makes PSG the clear favourites on paper. However, they have struggled to make the transition from a side that dominates domestically to a giant of European football. Madrid, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last 18 Champions League home matches since tasting defeat to Schalke in March 2015.
The Champions League represents the last opportunity for Real Madrid to salvage their season. Out of contention in the league and already eliminated in the Copa del Rey, Zinedine Zidane needs to win an unprecedented third successive European title to have any hope of remaining Madrid boss beyond the end of the season.
After a dismal first half of the season domestically, Ronaldo has scored seven league goals since the turn of the year, including a hat-trick in Saturday’s 5-2 victory over Real Sociedad. Cristiano Ronaldo has rediscovered his goalscoring form and has PSG in his sights.

Unai Emery will also be judged on his performances in Europe this season. PSG are expected to complete a clean sweep of all domestic trophies in France but the season will still be deemed a disappointment if they do not go far in the Champions League. Neymar could really announce himself as the world’s best player with an inspired performance over these two legs.
PSG have scored 76 goals in 25 league matches so far this season. That is a like 3 goals on average per game!

The two teams have met 7 times before, with PSG winning the head-to-head. However, they have met just twice in the UEFA competition back in 2015. Real Madrid won once 1-0 and drew the other game 0-0.
PSG veteran midfielder Thiago Motta is ruled out through injury. Layvin Kurzawa and Edinson Cavani both missed the win over Toulouse. But they could both return.
The hosts have Dani Carvajal suspended, but otherwise, Zidane has a fully fit squad from which to choose.
