Real Madrid to open the lead
The only way out of a potential defeat in the second leg is for Real Madrid is to open the lead in this game. They have the massive support of home fans and that should create an intimidating atmosphere for the visitors. Madrid hasn’t done particularly well against PSG recently after failing to win in the last three games. However, they never lost at home to the visitors in the UCL, winning on two such occasions at the Santiago Bernabeu. Notably, Real Madrid has the most wins (5) in this matchup against PSG’s 3 wins in 10 meetings.
The hosts have recently picked a good form, scoring eight and winning all their last three games. On the flip side, it appears PSG is on a downward trend after losing twice in the last two games since defeating Madrid in the first leg.
Goal-fest expected at Santiago Bernabeu
A goal-fest is expected at Santiago Bernabeu in this second leg of the UCL knockout game. While only one goal was scored in the first leg, this fixture has historically produced lots of goals. Five of the last six meetings had more than two goals. Both sides are in great scoring form and despite some shaky runs recently, there is a good chance PSG will be on the score sheet as much as Real Madrid will.
Match Information, Team Stats, and Real Madrid vs PSG Odds
There are injury concerns on both heads before this game, so let’s look at how these teams have fared recently as well as the expected lineups for this match to help you place a bet on our Real Madrid vs PSG prediction.
Real Madrid Lineups and News
A dismal performance that denied Real Madrid a shot on target in the first leg should be a major focus for Ancelotti in this game. Neither Benzema nor Vinicius was clinical enough to produce some magic moments in the first leg and with that, the hosts may have to rethink their formation defensively to counter PSG’s lethal attacking three of Neymar, Mbappe, and Messi. The hosts will be without Marcelo due to thigh injury while Casemiro and Mendy are both suspended.
PSG Lineups and News
An assist from Neymar in the penultimate was enough to hand PSG a hard-fought victory in the 90+4 minute in the first leg. It could get more difficult away from home as both sides stand a chance of progressing to the quarterfinals. Pochettino has most of the important players available for this game, save for Herrera sidelined with an eye injury. Ramos and Kurzawa are also injured.

Real Madrid Looking to Keep Perfect Home Record against PSG with a Win
Despite losing narrowly to PSG in the first leg, Real Madrid has a history to protect in this second leg of the 2022 UCL knockout match against the Parisians. The hosts have twice defeated PSG in previous UCL encounters at the Santiago Bernabeu. Moreover, since losing the first leg, Ancelotti’s men have improved massively winning thrice on the bounce since the 1-0 loss to PSG. Two of those games came with a clean sheet. On the flip-side, Pochettino must be worried sick as his side makes this trip to Spain. PSG’s form since winning the first leg has dwindled to two losses and one win in the domestic league. Defensively, the visitors could suffer some damage on matchday.
