There is no getting away from the fact that this game has probably come too early in the Champions League this season. One of the favourites to win the competition will exit it at the last 16 stage as Real Madrid face PSG, with the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night.

When the draw was made, PSG were instantly installed as favourites to progress despite Real making history by winning the Champions League for the last two years. Unai Emery’s men blitzed through their group in record fashion, while Los Blancos only finished second and were particularly exposed in a defeat to Tottenham at Wembley. Their league title defence is in tatters, too, with some claiming this tie is make or break for Zinedine Zidane. If Real Madrid have shown anything, though, it is that they should never be written off.

Form

PSG were the highest scorers ever in the group phase with 25 goals, winning all but one of their games and easing through as group winners against Bayern Munich. In Ligue 1, too, they are leading but a few chinks in their armour have begun to show in recent weeks. With Neymar in their side, anything is possible, but he has had far from an easy ride in Paris off the field.

Real’s season has so far been nothing short of a disaster by their high standards. They find themselves 19 points behind Barcelona in LaLiga with four losses this season. The Champions League is their last remaining opportunity to win some silverware this season, so the pressure is on.

Neither side has any fresh injury concerns, but Kylian Mbappe is set to start for PSG.
