Real Madrid – Paris Saint-Germain (1:30 AM)
Today we will have a match worth gold in this Champions League when PSG visits Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium for the Round of 16.
After the first leg that PSG won 1-0, the sights were set on what Real Madrid would do to reverse the situation, but a stomp in the Parisians’ training put the pressure on the French side: Kylian Mbappé is in doubt and the alarms went off.
Mbappé trained away from the team the two days prior to this clash, although until the last moment we will not know if the key piece of Paris Saint-Germain will be able to be on the field from the start of the match.

On Real Madrid’s side, the absence of Casemiro and Ferland Mendy due to the accumulation of cards brought headaches for Carlo Ancelotti -mostly because of the Brazilian- and the place in the midfield would be occupied by Eduardo Camavinga.
The 19-year-old Frenchman has a special background against PSG: when he played for Stade Rennais and was only 16 years old, he had an unprecedented match against the Parisians and Camavinga catapulted to the fame that took him from Ligue 1 to Real Madrid without any stopover.
To close the preview of the best duel of these Champions League Round of 16, it is necessary to talk about Lionel Messi’s return to Real Madrid’s home: 22 games played at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium with 15 goals and 9 assists make it the place where Messi scored the most goals playing like an away player. GOAT.

?♂️ 22 Games
⚽️ 15 Goals
?️ 9 Assists

Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Fernandez; Modric, Camavinga, Valverde; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius.
PSG: Navas; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Mendes; Gueye, Verratti, Paredes; Messi, Mbappé, Di Maria.
In the most open duel of the Champions League, the odds for Real Madrid (2.50), draw (3.70), and PSG (2.70) areas even as impossible to decipher, and the 1-0 in favor of the Parisians in the first leg is a reflection of what can happen today.
It may be risky, but +1.5 goals for Real Madrid would be something logical that pays very well with an odd of 1.93, as well as the development and end of the match -with the spice of an agonizing Playoffs definition- can lead to the PSG win a bet and both teams will score (odds of 4.10) is not something so crazy.
Alternative bets: +1.5 shots on goal by Karim Benzema (1.65), +1.5 fouls committed by Marco Verratti (1.65), +2.5 fouls received by Neymar Jr. (1.50), and +55.5 total possession of the ball by Real Madrid (1.72).
Manchester City – Sporting CP (1:30 AM)
After a 5-0 thrashing in Portugal, Manchester City will host Sporting Lisbon at Etihad Stadium in what could be a formality for Pep Guardiola’s side.
The Premier League leader does not seem to field an alternative team and could send several of his first-choice players, except for Kyle Walker who is suspended.
Sporting Lisbon will have almost no chance, not only to turn the aggregate score around but also to win the match in England. On top of that, Matheus Nunes will not be available due to suspension.

Manchester City: Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Sterling, Jesus, Grealish.
Sporting CP: Adam; Inacio, Coates, Feddal; Porro, Ugarte, Essugo, Reis; Sarabia, Santos.
The odds for win or draw are not even worth repeating and the important thing here will be the alternatives: +2.5 total goals (1.38), +2.5 goals Manchester City (1.68), Manchester City scores in the first half (1.27) and Kevin de Bruyne will give an assist (2.50).
