Real MadridReal Madrid Team News, Updates and Facts

A lot of Real Madrid's best known players are not involved in the International Champions Cup, perhaps as they only recently played at Euro 2016, so it will be quite a young team on show here. 

However, big names like Luka Modric and Karim Benzema are expected to play, with Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe, champions at Euro 2016 with Portugal, among the absentees for coach Zinedine Zidane to contend with for this game.

Real Madrid likely XI: 

Casilla, Coentrao, Nacho, Marcelo, Danilo, Kovacic, Modric, Isco, Asensio, Jese, Benzema

Paris Saint GermainParis Saint Germain Team News, Updates and Facts

PSG are looking to follow up their 3-1 win over Inter Milan in the last round with another victory here, but again a lot of their best known players are not going to be on show for this clash. Serge Aurier hit a brace in that win against Inter and will again line up at right-back, with Edinson Cavani given a chance to impress up front following the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Paris Saint-Germain likely XI: 

Areola; Aurier, Silva, Kimpembe, Maxwell, Callegari, Moura, Stambouli, Rabiot, Ikone, Cavani 

Real Madrid vs Paris Saint Germain Head-to-Head Stats

Real Madrid and PSG have a lot of recent history as they were drawn in the same group in last season's Champions League, which Zidane's men went on to win by beating city rivals Atletico Madrid on penalties in the final. Madrid won 1-0 at home but the game in Paris was a 0-0 stalemate, which could indicate a tight game is in store here. Prior to that double header, Madrid have beaten PSG 1-0 twice in club friendlies, so they have the edge on the head-to-head record.

Real Madrid v Paris Saint-Germain: Prediction

Despite the high-profile absentees, Madrid look to have a strong squad at the ICC, although PSG have the benefit of playing one of their group games already, so they have had more of a chance to acclimatise to the conditions and the surroundings. A close game seems inevitable and one goal could well be enough to win it, with a penalty shootout very possible too.

Real Madrid v Paris Saint-Germain: Betting Tips

Real Madrid have been made the narrow favourites for this game, offered at a price of 6/4 to win the match in 90 minutes, while PSG can be backed at slightly larger odds of 8/5. The draw could also be good value, with 13/5 a big price on what is likely to be a very close match. The 21/20 available on under 2.5 goals leaps out as a fantastic offer, while 1-0 Real Madrid is at 9/1.
