The recent form of the two teams suggest you should be ton PSG to beat Real Madrid…Will they?
The most expected encounter in the Champions League Round of 16 is definitely the PSG v Real Madrid battle according to all online sportsbook news sites in France. The two teams will challenge each other on 14 February in Madrid at the first leg, while the second leg is to be held in Paris on 6 March.
Can Real Madrid win back its top form till February?
It’s questionable. The Royal Club have been underperforming throughout the whole season. It’s the way they play. It’s not the lack of chances they create. In fact, they have at least 4-5 clear cut chances match after match, yet all Real Madrid forwards keep missing. And they have been doing so since September, so we can’t blame it all on luck, it must be something else as well.
Online sportsbook sites in France don’t expect much from the Galacticos as of today either. The odds for Real Madrid to qualify are 2.07, while the odds for PSG to eliminate Real Madrid are 1.70 at Vbet Sportsbook. Not without a reason. Real Madrid are suffering throughout the whole season.
We’ve already written about Real Madrid’s declining form in La Liga, how they are only 4th and how they are already 19 points away from Barcelona. They keep failing to score, which is definitely a mistake to be punished by PSG. Can Real Madrid come back to their top form, or will PSG execute them, just like Barcelona did as a Christmas present for Cataluna?
Bet on PSG to beat Real Madrid!
As mentioned above, PSG are favourites against Real Madrid. Not many teams can say that about themselves, but the online sportsbook directory is clearly of the opinion that PSG is expected to go through. In addition, they are even favourites for final glory: the odds for PSG to win the Champions League are 6.50 at Unibet Sportsbook. The biggest favourites to win the Champions League are currently Man City with their 4.25 outright Champions League winner odds.
However, Man City were just given a lecture why they shouldn’t be overly confident: Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool easily beat them this weekend. Pep’s men are already in the Top 8 probably, as they were drawn against FC Basel, who can be no match for the biggest teams in Europe. And Man City are definitely one of them.
PSG, on the other hand, is facing the Champions League winner of 2016 and 2017. Should Neymar and his mates knock Zidane’s men out, they’d instantly become the number one title favourites, for sure. PSG’s attacking Tridente will be a crucial point in PSG’S success. Will the Neymar, Canavi, Mbappé trio be capable of eliminating the Royal Club?
Bet on Neymar to score against Real Madrid!
This will be the perfect opportunity for the Brazilian crack to prove the world why he is hyped so much. He has been the shadow of Lionel Messi for so long, but now it’s time to finally get out there and make a world class performance against the best clubs in the world. PSG owner Qatari football guru definitely expects of him to do so.
And the Champions League betting odds are just as demanding: If you join Unibet Sportsbook, you will be able to bet on Neymar to score 3 goals against Real Madrid. The odds for Neymar’s hat trick are 34.00. That of Cristiano Ronaldo is only at 21.00, so the bookies still expect Ronaldo to score the goals…
The most expected derby in the upcoming Champions League Round is coming in only a few weeks. If Real Madrid won’t find their top form till then, maybe they shouldn’t even bother playing these two legs. However, should they finally start winning their matches, PSG should definitely be scared. Whatever will happen, neutral football fans can only win from this situation!
