Real Madrid will welcome Paris Saint-Germain at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Wednesday night as they try to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg. Los Blancos managed to earn a 4-1 win over Real Sociedad last weekend. In contrast, PSG suffered an unexpected 1-0 loss away at Nice earlier this month.
Real Madrid Vs Paris Saint-Germain: Talking Tactics
Carlo Ancelotti will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his men to dominate the ball and create enough chances to win this game.
Mauricio Pochettino will set his players up in a 4-3-3 set-up as well. The Argentine head coach will instruct his players to defend well and soak in all the pressure before exposing the home side’s defensive weaknesses on the counter.
Casemiro and Ferland Mendy are both suspended for this game. Otherwise, Ancelotti has no fresh selection concerns ahead of this game.
Real Madrid Predicted XI
Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Marcelo; Camavinga, Valverde, Modric; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius Jr
Ander Herrera will miss this game because of an eye infection while Sergio Ramos remains sidelined because of a calf injury.
Paris Saint-Germain Predicted XI
Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes; Pereira, Gueye, Verratti; Messi, Mbappe, Neymar
Karim Benzema will once again be Los Blancos’ most potent weapon up top. Both Eder Militao and David Alaba need to have a good game and keep a clean sheet if the home team are to overcome their first-leg deficit in midweek.
Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe will carry most of the goal-scoring workload for PSG up top. Gianluigi Donnarumma needs to have a good game if the Parisian outfit are to defend their first-leg lead and qualify into the next stage of the competition.
