Despite both sides missing some big players we think the goals could flow in the French capital when the Ligue 1 leaders host the La Liga giants

Zinedine Zidane takes his Real Madrid side to the Parc des Princes this week to face Paris Saint Germain in Group A of the Champions League. These two sides met in the quarter-finals of the competition back in 2018 with Madrid winning 5-2 on aggregate on their way to the title.

Latest odds

PSG have not lost a home group stage clash in the Champions League since 2004 with that run stretching over 21 matches. The French champions can be backed at 2.20 with Sportsbet to claim three points while Real Madrid are offered at 3.10 and the draw at 3.50.

PSG vs Real Madrid Team News

Real Madrid are without a number of first choice players with Marcelo, Luka Modric, Isco and Marco Asensio all missing through injury. Furthermore centre-backs Sergio Ramos and Nacho Fernandez are both suspended for the first game of the competition. PSG for their part are without their most high-profile players with Kylian Mbappe injured and Neymar is suspended. Edinson Cavani has also been missing through injury and it is possible that Mauro Icardi replaces him in the starting eleven. Midfielder Julian Draxler is also injured, while goalkeeper Keylor Navas is likely to start against his former side.

PSG vs Real Madrid Preview

Despite the important absentees on both sides there seems little doubt that this will be a high scoring game. PSG have been the top scorers in the group stages in each of the last two editions of the Champions League, and boast an imperious home record. Real Madrid for their part have netted in each of their last 28 games in the tournament with Zinedine Zidane at the helm and in Karim Benzema they boast a forward of great European pedigree. The Champions League's fourth all-time leading goalscorer has started the domestic season in strong scoring form and should help the visitors contribute to an entertaining game. What also makes Madrid's matches entertaining is their defensive fragility which has seen them keep just four clean sheets in their last 28 matches in all competitions, and it is difficult to see them shutting out PSG in front of their own fans.

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals looks a logical selection and is offered at 1.80. This bet paid out in both of the meetings between the sides two seasons ago and should do so once more this week.
