Real Madrid have to deliver and in the Champions League round of 16 against Paris Saint Germain. The problem is that the royal ones are in the worst crisis of recent times and the French star ensemble marches almost unhindered through the Ligue 1 and Europe. It seems unlikely at first glance that Real, like Phoenix, rises from the ashes. At second glance, however, we find that Madrid have been unbeaten in three games and have clinched an enormously important victory in La Liga. Paris, however, celebrates against the more average French teams one win after the other, but showed both in the premier class and the Ligue 1 weaknesses in the respective strongest competitors. We therefore believe in the resurrection of Real and dare a tip on the Double Chance 1 / X. Bets are offered at Bet365 at odds 1.50.
The deep fall of Real Madrid could hardly turn into larger dimensions. Only half a year ago, the Royal celebrated the Spanish championship, the title in the Champions League and most recently the Club World Cup and the Spanish Supercup. As of today, the move in La Liga has already scored seventeen points behind the leaders from Barcelona and a title defense almost impossible. In the Spanish Cup came just under three weeks ago the extremely blamable off against the outsider CD Leganés (H 1: 0, A 1: 2). Even in the group stage of the premier class, the troubled Zidane-Eleven has probably only been lucky. Because Borussia Dortmund slid parallel to the Royal in an even deeper creative crisis and left Real more or less voluntarily second place behind group winner Tottenham Hotspur.
It can be assumed that it has cracked neatly behind the royal scenes at least three weeks after the cup-off. In any case, the Zidane team has remained unbeaten ever since and celebrated an enormously important 2-1 away win at Valencia CF. After all, succeeded with this success against a direct competitor for one of the coveted Champions League places the leap to third place in La Liga, which should have certainly not harmed the morale. A week later, Ude Levante’s draw was only a 2-2 draw before Real Sociedad’s 5-2 win at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu last weekend. Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo also returned to his best at this dress rehearsal, warming his first hat-trick of the season for the duel against the Neymar club.
The last season certainly did not go as desired for those in charge of Paris Saint Germain. So it was enough in Ligue 1 only for runner-up and in the Champions League came after a terrific first leg before their own backdrop, the completely surprising finish at FC Barcelona (H 4: 0, R 1: 6). One of the deciding factors for Aus was Neymar, who has since changed sides for a lot of money. With him as a leader, the team of coach Unai Emery sends in this season not only to recapture the title in the highest French league. Also in the preliminary round of the Champions League PSG appeared extremely confident and provided with some furious performances for the group win in front of FC Bayern Munich.
Paris has been victorious for six games in all competitions. So also succeeded in the dress rehearsal last weekend against Toulouse FC a 1-0 win. In the absence of injured top scorer Edinson Cavani, superstar Neymar made the late but well-deserved winning goal. However, the only problem is that next to Paris, there is hardly any other top team in Ligue 1 represented and so the recent winning streak is difficult to evaluate. Because at most Monaco, Lyon and Marseille is still in the current season to award a certain international class. So it is not by chance that the Emery-Elf conceded the last defeat just three weeks ago at Olympique Lyon (1: 2). Therefore, it fits very well into the picture that Paris had to return home in the return leg in the Champions League group stage from Munich with a 1: 3 defeat and before in Marseille did not come out about a 2-2 draw.
