The topic is Real madrid vs PSG and everyone has been anticipating this legendary clash, considering how formidable the PSG lineup has turned out to be, with the likes of Neymar, Cavani, and Mbappe at the helms of the French giants on one side, and the trio of Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo leading the charge for the Madrid side, tonight’s game is a must watch for every football lover.
So we’ll be giving you the break down analysis of the Real madrid vs PSG first team firecrackers and how they compare in strengths and weaknesses. Here we go:
Real Madrid Navas may not be at the level of some of those Madrid pursue but he is mentally tough, quick in his movements and has a habit of rescuing them in key moments, producing often stunning saves, even though Madrid have tried hard to replace him with Man United’s De Gea and Athletic Bilbao’s Kepa.
Paris Saint-Germain Alphonse Areola has kept clean sheets in more than half of PSG’s league matches and did not concede a goal in the Champions League until matchday five of the group stage.
RM Could there be too much wrong with Madrid’s defence? Nacho, arguably their best player this season, will be alongside Raphaël Varane, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo as he replaces Dani Carvajal (who got suspended). Marcelo has not looked fit, Varane too has missed games and Ramos has been in early-season mode. However, the good news for them is that Ramos does have a habit of coming good when it really matters.
PSG Unai Emery has, like his predecessors Laurent Blanc and Carlo Ancelotti, made this team more defensively sound. Marquinhos has evolved into one of the world’s best centre-backs at 23, Presnel Kimpembe, also rapidly improving. Thiago Silva is a veteran no doubt and always remains a lethal.
RM Madrid has pulled its midfield back to three and it might endure even through the Madrid vs PSG saga. Conditioned by the return of Gareth Bale and with him the BBC (Bale, Benzema and Cristi). That means no Isco on the first team for now (he’ll be praying the Welsh goes back to injury very soon). Casemiro will holdup the midfield in front of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, who have been inconsistent but look as if they may be coming back into form.
PSG Marco Verratti and Adrien Rabiot are two of the world’s best box-to-box midfielders. Together, they are a very formidable two. Nevertheless, serious questions remain over defensive midfield, where the likes of Thiago Motta, Giovani Lo Celso and now Lassana Diarra resie. None of the three are an ideal solution and this could be an achilles heel in this tie.
RM Benzema is under pressure, is missing chances, and was whistled again at the weekend. Bale is back from injury for God knows how long and whats on everybody’s mind is that Ronaldo doesn’t know that we know that deep in his own very mind, the real madrid vs PSG clash tonight is really going to be about Ronaldo aiming to prove that his supposed replacement is a no show in comparison to himself.
PSG Neymar without doubt is a player PSG have that is capable of changing a match on his own. His fellow controversial summer signing Kylian Mbappé, continues to progress, and Edinson Cavani remains a legend, leading the scorers board so far this season. And lets not forget the recent good form of Ángel Di María as the Argentinian has been superb since the start of the calendar year.
Its going to be a blast this night. Don’t wait to be told the scores tomorrow-watch every second of it and if you have the liver, maybe place a bet or two.
