Paris Saint-Germain Analysis

PSG is coming into this match playing in very good form in their recent matches. They have won their last 2 matches and have won 4 of their last 5 matches with just 1 loss in that span. That loss came in a cup match though and really it ended as a draw and they were eliminated in PKs. With that being the case, they have actually not lost a match in their last 14 matches, collecting 9 wins and 5 draws in that span. When playing at home, they have not lost a match in their last 22 matches, collecting 19 wins and 3 draws in that span. They have also been trending to the under in their recent matches. They have gone under 2.5 goals in 2 of their last 3 matches and in 4 of their last 6. When playing at home, they have gone under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches and in 5 of their last 7. In the group stage, PSG scored 13 goals in 6 matches and allowed 8 goals in those as well. When playing at home, they scored 9 goals in 3 matches allowing 3 goals in that span as well. 
 

 

Real Madrid vs Paris Saint-Germain Prediction

PSG is coming into this match in much better form recently than Real Madrid has been playing in. Real Madrid has been struggling in both their league matches and in their cup matches while PSG has been winning a lot of matches regardless of the competition. PSG has won their last 2 matches straight and they played very well in both of those matches. Those were the first 2 matches in months that both Messi and Mbappe started side by side and they showed how great they can be with both of them on the field. PSG smashed Lille away from home 5-1 in a solid offensive showing but they then backed that up with great defense in their next match winning a low scoring 1-0 match at home over Stade Rennes. PSG have been getting very healthy over the last few weeks and they will have most of their players available for this game. Real Madrid is also very healthy for this match but they have not been playing in good form recently and that will be a problem for them in this match away from home. They have been playing great on defense though in their UCL away matches and they will likely try to slow down the pace of this match by keeping more possession and keeping the ball away from the potent attack of PSG. PSG has a lot more quality and talented players at their disposal here and as good as this Real Madrid defense has been, PSG has also been just as good on defense recently. PSG will be able to keep Real Madrid out of the net here and their attack will likely overwhelm Real Madrid at some point in the game and squeak out a winner here on their home pitch. PSG will win this match at home in a low scoring affair.
