Zidane should drop Benzema and start Asensio. PSG´s fullbacks can´t defend even if their lives depended on it, Alves in special is toast. If he´s getting exposed every weekend in France, imagine what a guy like Bale could do to him. What would be Bale vs Maicon all over again. 

For PSG, Di Maria is on great form but he´ll probably start on the bench. Another doubt is who will be third man on the midfield along with Rabiot and Verratti, it could be either Lo Celso or Lass.

Real Madrid continue with their controversial mosaics designed to coax and even insult the rival.  Last time it was one aimed at Atlético Madrid where they laughed at the fact Atleti had been to three finals and hadn't won any also lauding how many Real Madrid had won and today there will be a mosaic honouring Rafa Nadal (a self confessed Real Madrid fan) due to the fact he's won so many Roland Garros (owns the record) in Paris... in other words, Real Madrid are telling PSG that they're out to conquer and own Paris.

I hate PSG, I hate everything they presently stand for and their make up as a club.  BUT, I hope and wish that they absolutely RAPE Real Madrid! ;)

I think PSG will win, but Real Madrid seemed tossed aside easily by most people. Sure, they've been poor but they still have one of the best squads in the world and could win this if they wanted to. They also seem to perform better against stronger sides. I say this is a hard fought tie but PSG wins it in the end. Neymar is simply too good technically.

For me, that was over a year ago but I agree he still needs to win over the general public.

Real Madrid : Navas, Fernandez, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Modric, Casemiro, Kroos, Isco, Ronaldo Benzema

PSG: Areola, Berchiche, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Alves, Rabiot, Celso, Verratti, Neymar, Mbappe, Cavani.

 

Kinell. This has the making of 5 or 6 goals.

with the way Real defend, you'd expect 2 or 3 of them for PSG. At least. 

Ramos with a standard late header to keep Real in the tie.

There's a boom in the Spanish media right now with Real's (Zindane) team selection because he's broken up the "BBC" and dropped Bale.  Obviously dropping Cristiano Ronaldo would cause too many issues but out of him and Bale, the Welshman should be playing on recent form since his return from injury.  Isco gets in there and that's a very good idea for today.

I´d drop Benzema. Bale should be there as well, like I´ve said yesterday, Alves is done, every Ligue 1 manager is using fast wingers because he just can´t deal with the pace anymore. Poor selection from Zizou on this one. 

 

As for PSG, some balsy decisions by Emery, especially dropping Thiago Silva in favor of Kimpembe. Definitely the right decision, Kimpembe is a heck of a defender and is certainly ahead of Thiago Silva right now. Also, Berchiche and Lo Celso starting are good decisions.

He's Algerian and his friend, he told this to Morata (those exact words) before Morata made up his mind to go to Chelsea.
