Starting Line up:
Thibaut Courtois in incredible form and will want to show it against some of the best finishers in the world. The Belgian goalkeeper recently beat Keylor Navas‘ record but conceded unluckily against Real Sociedad during the weekend. His role will be very crucial against PSG.
Dani Carvajal had good game against Sociedad. Carvajal will start against the PSG. He will compete against Neymar Junior in the match on the right flank. Odriozola is already not in the squad. Militao will cover for Carvajal on any replacement.
On the left wing, Marcelo is expected to start the match as he was rested against Sociedad. The Brazilian has improved dramatically since the beginning of this season, although there will always be lapses in defense for him. However, what he brings to the team is unmatched by anyone else and we’ll be seeing that on the left-flank once again. Madrid will have more attacking options with him in thee lineup on the left flank.
In the centre back positions, Varane and Ramos will start the match. Varane had a rough start to the campaign but finally came back to his best against Sociedad. The pace of Varane will be good against Mbappe and Neymar in the defense.
Sergio Ramos had poor start against Sociedad and practically gave a goal but was extremely solid in the rest of the match. His leadership will play a crucial role against the French side on Tuesday. He will have to keep the strikers like ( Cavani and Icardi) away from the penalty box.
Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Valverde will be the midfield in the starting line-up as they are strong contenders to start the match. Although Modric was the man of the match but Valverde will bring energy and agility in the midfield. Two goals in two games for Federico Valverde as he came out with another masterclass against Sociedad. The Uruguayan has been performing brilliantly since last season and should play ahead of Modric.
Toni Kroos was also rested for this match. He will play big role in the match. In the holding role , Is there any match where Carlos Casemiro is not expected to start? The Brazilian defensive midfielder is an integral part of Zidane’s team and whenever he’s fit, he will play. Lately, Modric can play his part in the latter stages of the game with Isco.
In the right flank, Zidane will need more experience in the shape of Gareth Bale. In his cameo appearance against Sociedad, the Welshman was whistled excessively but came out with a great performance and he’ll want to continue that on Tuesday. On the left flank, Eden Hazard will play. All that is missing from his C.V. so far is more number of goals that he will get sooner or later. Hazard comes out with improved and brilliant performances in the recent games he played.
Now it is time to said that Benzema is among the best forwards of the World. Benzema scored his tenth goal in domestic league. The french striker will be a definite force against the PSG defense. Benzema is in red hot form these days which France National team is lacking from their strikers. He should be played for his National colors again. Rodrygo and Jovic will also get some minutes in the match. For Rodrygo, this match will be more motivating as his childhood hero Neymar Jr. Is also playing in the opposition.
Both teams can harm the opposition badly but it should be a fascinating match in the Spanish Capital. We will say 1-1 draw because a point will be suited to both teams.
