RM vs PSG Champions League Dream11 Prediction 2019 | Real Madrid vs Paris Saint Germain
Titans collide in the Champions League as Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) take on Real Madrid in Group A’s most anticipated fixture. The Parc des Princes will play host to what promises to be a great display of fantastic football. Despite prominent names like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani, Julian Draxler, Luka Modric, Marco Asensio, Isco, Marcelo and possibly Sergio Ramos set to miss the game, it still boasts plenty of talent.
Thirteen-time Champions League winners Real Madrid haven’t been at their best this season, managing only two wins out of the last five games, After Los Blancos’ disastrous pre-season, things appeared to be shaping up, only for injuries to put a dent into the proceedings. Zinedine Zidane will have his work cut out, especially against such formidable opposition. New signings Ferland Mendy and Eder Militao will look to make more of an impact, while stars like James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale will aim for frequent first-team football.
PSG hope to establish themselves at the top of European football by winning the Champions League. Although having huge depth in their squads, they have always succumbed in the past either owing to bad luck or poor play. This season’s squad looks to be the best in some time, and PSG has made no secret of their intention to win the big one. They have won four out of their last five games and will be well on the road to victory with a good start against Real Madrid at home. With their fearsome attacking trident entirely out, it will be quite interesting to see how it all unfolds.

Dream11 Team and Analysis | RM vs PSG Champions League Dream11 Prediction 2019
Goalkeeper – Keylor Navas is the standout pick due to Thibaut Courtois’ poor form and unreliability. He will look to put on a brilliant display of goalkeeping against his former club. Having Champions League big match experience is another reason to pick the Costa Rican.
Defenders – The rock-solid Thiago Silva makes the cut from PSG, with the captain showing no signs of slowing down even today. Juan Bernat gets the nod over Thomas Meunier for his superior attacking prowess in addition to his defensive capabilities. From Real Madrid, Raphael Varane will be the main pick, with Sergio Ramos unlikely to play.
Midfielders – Both sides boast of huge talent here. From PSG, we’d go with the diminutive Angel di Maria, who will look to make his side’s right flank a dangerous one, especially in the absence of Kylian Mbappe. The smart money is also on Marco Verratti, as the Italian can help open up the opposition’s frail defence with his passing and precise movements. From Real Madrid, Casemiro makes the cut for his threat at the back and the occasional goal he scores. Toni Kroos will be a key factor in the match like Verratti, so he is also a great pick. The battle between these two playmakers will most certainly dictate the game. And finally, the brilliant Eden Hazard is a shoe-in for his sublime skills. Expect him to give the opposition a hard time, clinically supply Karim Benzema or get on the scoresheet himself.
Forwards – With the roll Karim Benzema is on, the central striker position is still his by a long shot. The Frenchman is a threat anywhere on the pitch, and it’s hard to overlook him after all the goals he has scored this season. Pairing him with Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi completes our Dream11 team. The loaned forward is a defender’s nightmare with his sublime finishing, and will look to exploit the weak Real Madrid backline.
Keylor Navas, Thiago Silva, Raphael Varane, Juan Bernat, Eden Hazard, Casemiro, Toni Kroos, Angel di Maria, Marco Verratti, Karim Benzema, Mauro Icardi
