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.

Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes; Pereira, Gueye, Verratti; Messi, Mbappe, Neymar

Key Men

Real Madrid

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.

Paris Saint-Germain

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.
