5 reasons why PSG will beat Real Madrid in the round of 16
Real Madrid vs PSG is perhaps "the" clash of the last 16 stage of Europe's premier club competition. The two sides have some of the best players in the world which is why we could get a brilliant tie.
The two teams have had contrasting seasons going into the first leg. Based on the form, PSG look the stronger of the two. Here are five reasons why they will overpower Real Madrid in the upcoming tie:
#5 MCN’s form compared to BBC’s form
They're perhaps two of the most feared trios in modern football today but have been poles-apart this season in terms of form and confidence. The trio of Mbappe, Cavani, and Neymar have been lighting up the Ligue 1 and Europe with their pace, strength, and goals.
Injuries and suspensions at various stages of the current campaign has meant that the trio of Bale, Benzema, and Ronaldo have hardly played together. It was only against Valencia, two weeks back that the trio started together for the first time this season.
While the BBC have looked threatening in the few minutes they've played together this season, their lack of playing time together hands PSG the advantage in this tie. Benzema's struggles in front of goal means the pressure on the other two is even more.
For a game that has been built up around these two attacking trios, one certainly has the edge over the other. Goals win you games and PSG, as things stand, look like the team who could score freely of the two.
