Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain are clashing tomorrow in the main event of Champions League’s Week 5. After suffering a routine loss in the first game, played in Paris, the Los Blancos are determined to get their revenge. The contest takes place at the famous Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Finally Woke Up
Zinedine Zidane’s team started this season pretty badly. On several occasions, their performance was under average, and the French head coach was in serious trouble back then. Stories about his departure were all over the media, with numerous names mentioned as possible replacements. But Real plays well now. Benzema and Hazard are creating a chemistry, while Rodrygo exploded and the young Brazilian needs to be credited for recent good results. The Spanish titan has six wins in a row without a defeat, and during that span, they allowed just one goal. It was a shocker against Real Sociedad in the second minute of the game played this Saturday. The offensive line is finally on the move, and the Madridians netted 13 goals over the recent three contests. Among them was a trashing of Galatasaray in the Champions League, 6-0. So it is safe to say that the hosts are coming into this event fired up.
PSG Catching the Rhythm
The Saints had a rocky start of the season, with several of their big stars picking up injuries. However, after a period in which they always played without at least one of them, the moment came when Tomas Tuchel finally gets his entire squad at disposal. Neymar, Cavani, Di Maria, all those guys are ready to play. PSG has 13 wins and two losses over the previous 15 matches, and they are perfect in the UCL. After four rounds, the French champs are first in Group A, with 12 points and a goal difference of 10-0. It will be interesting to see how Kylian Mbappe performs, as he is the No.1 target of Real Madrid in the next transfer window. The young French forward is probably the biggest talent in the world, and, surely, the wealthy owners of the Parisians are not going to let him go that easy.
The fans will enjoy this matchup, as both sides play very interesting and attacking-minded football. All those who like to bet can invest some money on high efficiency. Don’t be surprised if we see three, four, or even more goals here.
