What we need to know

All Paris goals in the group stage

At least in terms of the names, this is definitely the hottest duel in this round. Madrid played the somewhat more confident group phase and can rely on the experience of coach Carlo Ancelotti, who already won the pot with Real in 2014. Paris relies on its big names, PSG is particularly well equipped offensively.


Paris: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes – Danilo, Paredes, Verratti – Di María, Messi, Mbappé

real Madrid: Courtois – Carvajal, Éder Militão, Alaba, Mendy – Kroos, Casemiro, Modrić – Asensio, Benzema, Vinicíus Júnior

expert forecasts

Vanessa Tomaszewski, Paris reporter
Paris may have been knocked out of the Cup by Nice but remain comfortably at the top of Ligue 1 after beating Rennes at the last minute at the weekend. Kylian Mbappé scored the decisive goal and all eyes will be on his interaction with Lionel Messi and might also be directed at Neymar.

Joseph Walker, Real Madrid reporter
Carlo Ancelotti’s team performs particularly well in big games and what could be bigger than a round of 16 match against Paris. Although they struggled early in the group stage, once they got going they seemed like a finely tuned machine. However, there is a feeling that Karim Benzema’s return will be the key to take a positive result back to the Santiago Bernabéu.

trainer votes

Mauricio Pochettino, Paris
I don’t think a team has more or less pressure. I have a lot of respect for Real Madrid because it’s one of the biggest clubs in the world. This club has won everything. But I don’t think there is a favorite. From the quality of the players, it could also be a final.

Carlo Ancelotti, Madrid
The only pressure on us is the fact that Paris have a great team and this is our opponent. But that’s more motivation than pressure. Preparing for a game like this is not difficult because the players are highly motivated. Both teams will try to get the most out of the ball possession phases and become dangerous to the opponent with counterattacks. Our style of football is very similar.
