He Real Madrid receive the PSG at Santiago Bernabeu On the cold night of this Tuesday in November. Zinedine Zidane He wants to prevent it from being even more icy by getting a positive result and moving away the ghosts that compromise the team's classification. With an air of revenge for the 3-0 of the match that inaugurated this edition of the Champions League For whites, this 'final' against the Parisians is the first in a month that seems like an exam.
In this first test the Real Madrid players will pass with a five with the fact of certifying the classification for the next round of the maximum continental competition. Although Santiago Bernabéu always demands ten, the cabals to pass this exam have three clear possibilities in which it is still possible to finish as group first, second, most likely, and out of the round of 16 for the first time since it changed The format of the competition.
Qualify without playing
The Zidane team can sign the pass to the next phase without Artur Dias signal the start of the meeting before the PSG. From 18:55 hours the game is played Galatasaray – Bruges. Anything that does not imply a victory of the Belgians would mean the automatic classification of Madrid at the knockout stages of the Champions League whatever happens in their match.
In this way, if the whites win in the game that starts at 9:00 pm, the way of the first place would be more open than in any other case. Galatasaray and Bruges the qualification for the Europa League via third place of the group would be played on the last day. The Galatasaray would face the PSG with something still in play, an incentive for those of Thomas Tuchel don't score in that match; which is the option that Madrid players would have as long as they also win the Bruges.
Win or win
In the event that the Belgians get the victory in Istanbul, Madrid could only qualify on Tuesday night winning the PSG. The Bruges would have five points, for the ten of Madrid in the case that is proposed in the absence of only one day to play. Those of Philippe Clement they haven't won any games yet, so victory in the Ali Sami Yen It would be the first in the competition.
What this option would also imply is that Galatasaray would not play anything on the last day against PSG, which would make it more difficult to achieve the first place for whites. A priori, the French would have a simple process before them. The same as the encounter between Madrid and Bruges, with the Belgians already classified for the Europa League.
Are there Europa League options?
Yes, there are. If the Bruges get the win against Galatasaray and the whites tie or lose, everything would be open for the last day with the definition of the second and third place of the group in liza in the Bruges – Real Madrid. The history of the confrontation that will be lived on Tuesday night at the Santiago Bernabéu favors whites with three victories in their fief, by one of the PSG, so continuing with this trend would prevent reaching the critical situation.
With the previous clashes giving Zidane favorites, the defeat would put the white club on the ropes for the first time since the Champions League format changed. Although in that circumstance the club of Concha Espina could overcome the process against Bruges with the tie, the appointment on Tuesday at the Santiago Bernabéu before the PSG is vitally important not to play the pass to a card in Belgium.
