Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are two clubs that have been connected at the hip the past couple of years and on Tuesday, they will face off at the Parc des Princes for what is easily the marquee matchup of the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
On this episode of PSG Talking, I welcome Muddassir Hussain from the Real Talk podcast to discuss every angle of the highly-anticipated match between PSG and Real Madrid on Tuesday at the Parc des Princes.

We begin the show with a topic on the minds of PSG and Real Madrid fans and that is the availability of Karim Benzema. The former Olympique Lyonnais man has been out with an injury and is racing to return in time for the trip to Paris. I ask Muddassir if he thinks Benzema will play or if he would prefer to rest him for the return leg when he’s hopefully fully fit.
Next, I ask about Real Madrid’s current form in league play. After a blistering start to the season, have things quieted down, or are they peaking at the right time?
The conversation then turns towards PSG’s superstars and whether Real Madrid will have the players capable of slowing down the likes Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, and potentially Neymar Jr. if he’s able to return from injury in time.
Muddassir predicts Real Madrid’s starting lineup, gives his thoughts on whether the outcome of this tie will have an impact on where Mbappé plays next season, and predicts the final score.
