The Tuesday morning Spanish Papers have been heavily focused on Real Madrid’s Champions League encounter against French giants, Paris Saint Germain, and its affect on some members of the club.
Real Madrid’s main marksman Karim Benzema has been on a torrid run of form, scoring a goal every 310 minutes, which is equivalent to a goal every three games.
This game is make or break for the Frenchman’s future at the Bernabeu, with a good performance potentially able to re-ignite his Real Madrid career, but a poor performance will see Fiorentino Perez looking into the transfer market for a new striker, and the likes of Mauro Icardi and Harry Kane have been names circulating the Spanish capital.
The rest of the Madrid squad have rallied together of late and they believe they can beat PSG, “confidence in each-other”, “we believe in our quality and experience”, “we always approach these game with optimism”, “PSG are good, but we are Real Madrid”, “with our passion, there is no impossible”, “the Bernabeu will mark our path”… these are some of the motivating words from the Madristas as they face the tough task of coming up against Mbappé, Cavani and Neymar.
The Brazilian has 18 goals in as many appearances in Ligue 1, and will be PSG’s main man, although they will also use Mbappé’s pace, as well as Cavani’s movement to break down Los Blanco’s defence, and statistics show that Neymar is superior to Messi, who has caused problems for Madrid throughout the years.
In other news, Barcelona’s new signing Phillipe Coutinho says that he is integrating well in the Catalan’s squad, and that he will be a member of their community, and he says he came to Barcelona to inscribe his own history and that he wants to play with the best.
