Paris Saint-Germain were more dominant in the first leg of their Champions League clash with Real Madrid than the result suggested and can highlight their superiority in the Spanish capital.

PSG had to wait until stoppage time to make the breakthrough when Kylian Mbappe scored the goal which sees the French side head to Madrid with a 1-0 lead.

It was a deserved advantage though and the visitors appeal as 2.60 underdogs to also win the second leg as our opening Real Madrid vs PSG prediction.

Real Madrid Betting Odds

Madrid looked set to leave Paris on level terms but were undone in the fourth minute of injury time when Mbappe fired home from a tight angle.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men had already survived a major scare when Thibaut Courtois saved Lionel Messi’s second-half penalty while at the other end they failed to muster a shot on target.

Their hopes of overturning the deficit in the second leg have also been hampered by bookings for Casemiro and Ferland Mendy which mean the pair are suspended.

Real will need to produce more of an attacking threat in the second leg but that could leave an ageing team vulnerable at the back, especially with the pace of Mbappe able to exploit any gaps on the counter attack.

An open game is expected, especially if Real need to chase the game later on, and we like over 3.5 goals at Real Madrid vs PSG odds.

PSG Betting Odds

PSG would have been left kicking themselves if they had not made the most of home advantage by winning the first leg.

Angel Di Maria set the tone after lifting an early chance for PSG over the crossbar from close range.

Courtois denied Mbappe after the interval and Messi fired the loose ball over before Dani Carvajal was adjudged to have taken out Mbappe in the penalty area in the 61st minute.

Messi’s spot-kick was saved by Courtois and it appeared not even the returning Neymar could break Real’s stubborn resistance until the Brazilian set up Mbappe for the decisive strike deep in added time.

PSG reached the semi-finals last season and were runners-up in 2020 so are desperate to go all the way this time.

The return of Neymar boosts their chances and being runaway leaders in France allows them to put greater focus on this competition.

The visitors can afford to be patient in the second leg and wait for Real to take more risks so for the last of our Real Madrid vs PSG betting tips, let’s go for PSG to win after drawing at half-time at 6.50.
