This Tuesday evening, Paris Saint-Germain were eliminated from the Champions League at the semi-final stadium by Manchester City (1-2; 0-2). Consequently, the Citizens are the first to qualify for the final which will be played in Istanbul at the end of May. This Wednesday evening, we will know the team that will join the Skyblues on Turkish soil. Real Madrid travel to England to face Chelsea.
During the first leg, the Merengues did very well since they managed to snatch a fairly happy draw (1-1). But Zinedine Zidane will have to create something else to hope to reverse the trend which, given the score, is not really in their favor. On the other hand, Thomas Tuchel, who arrived only a few months ago, will have the opportunity to play his second C1 final in a row after that with Paris SG last year.
Sergio Ramos back
The German coach should line up his usual 3-4-3 for this confrontation. Edouard Mendy will be well in goal and will be protected by a line of three made up of Christensen, Thiago Silva and Antonio Rüdiger. Ben Chilwell and Cesar Azpilicueta would be the pistons on the left and right when Jorginho and N’Golo Kanté, exceptional on the first leg, will take charge of forming the double-pivot. Finally, in front, Chistian Pulisic and Mason Mount should accompany a Timo Werner who must find the net.
Opposite, Zinedine Zidane should remain in the classic and a good old 4-3-3. Thibaut Courtois will be in goal while Nacho and Ferland Mendy will take care of the defensive flanks. Raphäel Varane absent, Eder Militão should accompany the captain, Sergio Ramos, back. In the middle, we also stay on the usual with a trident composed of Casemiro in low point and Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. Finally, Marco Asensio could start on the right side just like Eden Hazard on the other side. Finally, Karim Benzema will also be a good start. This meeting promises to be crazy!
