Real Madrid and PSG set for feisty Champions League clash at the Bernabeu

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain lock horns in a sensational last-16 clash in the 2018 UEFA Champions League, and it's certainly a match worthy of the final, but they will do battle in the early knockout stages on Wednesday night, and the first leg will take centre stage at the Bernabeu, as both sides attempt to head to Paris with a positive result.

  • Real Madrid beat PSG 1-0 the last time they met in 2015
  • Cristiano Ronaldo has scored nine goals in Champions League this season
  • PSG edged out Bayern Munich to top their group

How Will It Go?

Home advantage could prove crucial and reigning champions Real will start this match as favourites, as they look to sparkle on home soil, and Zinedine Zidane's men, who are way off the pace in La Liga, have been installed as 29/20 favourites with Betfair Sportsbook to land victory, and having beaten Real Sociedad 5-2 at the weekend then they will look to build on that success.

They qualified behind Tottenham Hotspur in their group, but Real have shown a real zest for European football in recent years, and with Zidane looking to keep hold of his job at the Spanish giants he will be eager to head to Paris in a couple of weeks with a win, and if Cristiano Ronaldo can continue his stunning record in this competition, then he could be the difference between the two sides.

PSG qualified for the knockout stages in first placed, as they edged out Bayern Munich to top spot, but with the Ligue 1 crown looking destined to the French heavyweights, it will all be about a Champions League trophy, but while they have arguably the most dangerous attacking force in world football, they may be vulnerable at the back, and if Real can find their best then the 19/10 about an away win is too short with Betfred,

The draw is available at 14/5 with Betfair Sportsbook, but you have to feel if Real are to down PSG they have to win the home leg, and you could see Zidane set his team free from the outset, and they could just edge this tie, before they face a tough away trip to Paris in the second leg.
Match Odds:

Feisty Affair Expected

I think most would expect for this game to be awash with goals, and it's hard to get stuck into that market too much, but an eye-catching price on offer is Unibet's 33/10 about a sending off in the match, as all 22 players strive to gain that advantage.

Both teams have already received six red cards this season in all competitions, and with so much on the line on Wednesday night, it should be a feisty affair with lots of tackles flying in, and you have to feel that there could be some significant play acting as well to try and get opponents booked, so in a game that will ooze quality, it will also have a slightly unsporting aspect to it.

Ronaldo To Win Battle Of Strikers

Cristiano Ronaldo has already scored nine goals in this year's Champions League, and the Portuguese phenomenon can produce the goods in front of goal again, and at 4/1 with Coral he is a great bet to open the scoring in what should be a highly exciting contest at the Bernabeu.

Edinson Cavani and Neymar are both 9/2 shots to grab the first goal, while Gareth Bale is a best-priced 13/2 to break the deadlock, but Ronaldo's Champions League is absolutely sensational, and he can shine in what could be a narrow Real win on Wednesday evening in Spain.
