Why bet on Real Madrid versus Paris Saint-Germain?
Real heads to Paris in decent enough form to give PSG a great match. Although Real shows just a couple of wins in their last 5, and both victories were against teams Paris would crush, the top squad in La Liga will be more fired up than they usually are because this is a Champions League match. Also, Real offers excellent odds.

Why bet on Paris Saint-Germain vs Real Madrid?
PSG hosts Real Madrid having won 4-of-5. The lone loss occurred against rival Nice via penalty kicks in a French Coupe de France match. The Coupe de France isn’t nearly as important to Paris Saint-Germain as the Champions League. Mbappe, Messi, and Wijnaldum should all play on Tuesday, making PSG a solid chalk to get the aggregate lead over Real.

Paris Saint-Germain vs Real Madrid Final Betting Analysis
Neither team brings it in every match. Paris Saint-Germain fell to Nice, a team they should have dominated, and Real Madrid lost to Athletic Club. Both losses happened in tournaments that neither squad was fired up to win.
On Tuesday, both PSG and Real will be ready to show their best. Paris has a big edge because this happens on their pitch. On paper, Paris Saint-Germain looks like an easy winner.
But Real Madrid manager and head coach Carlo Ancelotti is a master at getting his team to peak in matches that matter. Over the weekend, Isco didn’t step onto the pitch in the 0-0 draw with Villareal in Real’s last.
The match happened on Feb. 12. Keeping Isco fresh worked because Real escaped Villareal with a 0-0 draw.
Ancelotti, no doubt, will play Isco on Tuesday. Because arguably their best player will be ready to go, and because the odds make them an overlay, Real Madrid is the team to back.
