PREDICTION
Although Zinedine Zidane has masterminded Real Madrid to success in the last two editions of the Champions League, it is fair to say that his employment status is under some scrutiny. With Los Blancos’ defence of La Liga this season being non-existent it looks like the club may have to win a third successive trophy in this competition to keep the former Galactico in the Bernabeu hotseat. 

It seems as if Zidane has two games to save his job, and unfortunately for him those are against PSG. Unai Emery’s men are the runaway leaders in Ligue 1 but it is European success that the club’s Qatari owners are craving, as this would truly place them among the footballing elite. Neymar’s big money move last summer made him the world’s most expensive player but he is reportedly eyeing a move to Real Madrid and this could be the perfect opportunity to put himself in the shop window. 

There is very little to split the two teams and if it does end in a draw then PSG would surely be happier with the outcome.
