THE TEAM NEWS

PSG

  • Paris scraped a win at the weekend as Neymar scored a 92nd-minute winner despite being booed for virtually the whole match by Paris fans.
  • The Brazilian misses out here however due to suspension which means Icardi could be handed a first start after joining the club on loan.
  • Cavani has an outside chance of featuring here following injury but he will likely be on the bench while star man Mbappe is still injured.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Navas; Meunier, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe; Sarabia, Gueye, Verratti; Di Maria, Icardi, Choupo-Moting

Unavailable: Mbappe (Injured), Draxler (Injured), Kehrer (Injured), Dagba (Injured), Neymar (Suspended), Cavani (Injured)

Doubtful: Bernat (Injured)

REAL MADRID

  • Real Madrid are improving with every game after a slow start to the season and the same can be said for their opponents here.
  • They welcome back Gareth Bale who served a domestic ban at the weekend but they are missing Sergio Ramos and Nacho in Paris.
  • Eder Militao will come into the defence for Ramos while Bale and fit-again Hazard could both come into the side to boost the attack.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Courtois; Dani Carvajal, Varane, Eder Militao, Mendy; Casemiro, James Rodriguez, Kroos; Bale, Benzema, Hazard

Unavailable: Isco (Injured), Marco Asensio (Injured), Modric (Injured), B. Diaz (Injured), Sergio Ramos (Suspended), Nacho (Suspended), Marcelo (Injured), M. Diaz (Out of favour)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

There are plenty of parallels between these two European giants right now and the recent unrest they have endured. Real Madrid have a good recent record against PSG but they are far from their best themselves and this could quite easily play out as a stalemate with a point suiting both teams.
