The wait is finally over! The mouth watering Valentine’s Day clash for all football lovers is finally here! REAL MADRID vs PSG!!!
Real Madrid is struggling for a Champions League spot in La Liga and has already been knocked out of the Copa. So it would not be incorrect to say that the odds are stacked against them tonight.
On the other hand, their opponents have dominated the Ligue 1. While it not may be a big feat, they won their Champions League Group, which also had Bayern Munich.
Real do have the advantage of playing the first leg at home, though they haven’t been great there either.
Certain insider sources are claiming that the result of this tie is detrimental for both Ronaldo‘s and Neymar‘s future. While the latter is being heavily linked to the Los Blancos for a summer transfer, his performance in this tie can be the deciding factor whether Pérez will go all out to pursue him or not.
If Pérez does, it will surely result in a farewell for underperforming Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be sold for the funds required to sign the Brazilian as well as to give him his preferred position.
Regardless of the result in the first leg, this match should live up to its expectations and be quite fun to watch. If Real can manage to lead after this first leg on Wednesday, most certainly the pressure will be on PSG to perform back home in Paris. Fingers, nose, and toes all crossed for a positive outcome from this match.
