Real Madrid aim to PSG in last-16
Real Madrid will be looking to avoid a repeat of the last time they faced PSG, as the two European giants meet on Tuesday night.
In the reverse fixture, PSG ran out as easy 3-0 winners, on a night when Madrid were totally outclassed. Since winning that opening fixture, PSG have taken control of Group A by winning each of their next three games and have yet to concede a goal in the competition.
With PSG already guaranteed a place in the knockout rounds, a win would see Real join them. That could be a tough task at a time when the French club are in such good form in the competition, but Madrid have made some major improvements since these sides last met.
A 3-1 home win against Real Sociedad on Sunday, saw Zinedine Zidane's team extend their unbeaten run to six games (W5 D1). They did not concede in five of those matches and only goal difference is keeping Madrid below the La Liga leaders Barcelona, with the two rivals tied on points.
Goals could come early
Real Madrid may be seeing plenty of cleans sheets these days, but it is hard to imagine them containing a team with the attacking talent of PSG, who have only failed to score in one of their 19 matches this season
The French champions are fast starters when it comes to scoring goals. PSG have scored in the first-half of each of their last eight games. With Real Madrid doing likewise in five of their last six matches, over 1.5 first-half goals could land at the attractive price of 2.40.
