NairaBet Preview: Real Madrid v Paris Saint-Germain: Expect lots of goals in the Spanish capital

Both teams were lethal in front of goal during the group phase and will certainly showcase it once again

It’s set to be an intense atmosphere at the Santiago Bernabeu as Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain do battle in the first leg of the Uefa Champions League last 16 on Wednesday night.

Los Blancos have been disappointing this season in the Primera Division, sitting in fourth place, 19 points behind Barcelona.

They also finished second in Group H behind Tottenham Hotspur and have it all to do in defending the crown they won in Cardiff last June. NairaBet has tagged them as slight favourites at (2.40).

For the Parisians, they lead the Ligue 1 standings by a comfortable 12 points and also topped Group B ahead of Bayern Munich, Celtic and Anderlecht.

The struggles of Los Blancos could play into PSG’s hands and the same betting firm has placed odds of (2.80) to see them establish a first leg lead.

A draw at the end of 90 minutes is priced at (3.95).

The only previous meeting between these two giants in the Champions League came during the 2015/16 group phase with Madrid avoiding defeat in both games. Backing them to do that again is available at (1.40).

Zinedine Zidane’s men were able to keep clean sheets on both occasions but considering that they have struggled defensively this term, they are (1.18) to concede.

Unai Emery’s charges scored a mammoth 25 goals during this season’s group phase which is a record in the competition. Los Blancos on their path scored 17 goals.

This reads that lots of goals should be expected in the Spanish capital and an offer of (1.40) for more than three goals should be rewarding for punters as well as both sides finding the back of the net at (1.35).

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in every single game in Europe this season and is tipped to score here again at (1.75) anytime.

Kylian Mbappe has scored six goals in the Champions League knockout phase and NairaBet prices the French youngster at (2.35) to find the back of the net anytime.
