On Friday (December 16), PSG and Real Madrid will compete for three points on matchday five of the UEFA Women’s Champions League. The hosts are coming off a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Lyon last weekend in a French league matchup at the top of the table. In the 87th minute, Kadidiatou Diani scored the winning goal.
In contrast, Real Madrid defeated city rivals Atletico Madrid at home by the same score. Seven minutes into the game, Kathellen scored the winning goal. With five points from four games, they will turn their attention to the continent, where they are third in Group A. With seven points, PSG is in second place, three behind leaders Chelsea.
Real Madrid’s chances of making the knockout stages are on the line here, and if they lose, they could be eliminated. In the meantime, PSG has an advantage, and if they win, they will advance to the next round. The hosts have a good run of form, and their victory over Lyon last weekend probably gave them more confidence.
Both teams are likely to go all out for victory and possess sufficient quality to score. However, with goals coming from both ends, PSG ought to claim a close victory.
Prediction: PSG Women 2-1 Real Madrid Women
The two teams will meet for the fourth time. Last season, they played each other in Group B of the competition, and PSG won both games with a 6-0 aggregate score. On matchday two in October, they could not be separated in a goalless draw. PSG has won six of their last seven matches to go nine games unbeaten across all competitions.
At least one team has failed to score in nine of PSG’s last ten games across divisions. Real Madrid has scored two goals or fewer in four of its last six games. At least three goals have been scored in five of PSG’s last seven games.
