PSG-Real Sociedad: Paris facing the wall in the round of 16

This Wednesday on Radio Foot live summary at 4:10 p.m. UT (5:10 p.m. PARIS): Champions League, the rest of the round of 16: will Paris be “stronger in February? » as Luis Enrique predicted? PSG must be strong from the start against Imanol Alguacil’s Real Sociedad, who finished 1st in Group D, beating Inter Milan to the post. Having a good first round is essential for Luis Enrique’s 11, against the Spaniards who like to put pressure, confiscate the ball. Can the blue and white collective upset a fragile Parisian defensive sector? Will Paris be able to force the Basque lock with its “DMB” attacking trio?

– Bayern’s salvation goes through Rome and Lazio. Will the “Roten” take an entry option against the Bleu Ciel? The Bavarians, less sovereign than during the group stage, recover Thomas Müller and Joshua Kimmich. The Laziale, currently 8th in Serie A, know how to defend, can they count on their gunner captain Ciro Immobile? Can they surprise the Germans who have lost 2 of their last 5 meetings?

– Debrief of the first legs of these 8th rounds: Real Madrid suffered but won in Leipzig. The locals, however, thought they had opened the score, before Sesko’s goal was denied! Good or bad decision by VAR? Turning point of the meeting? Merengues goalkeeper Lunin was decisive. A 1-0 success sufficient to calmly consider the return? – This should be the case for the Citizens, who did the job in Copenhagen. Sometimes tickled by the Danes, the Sky Blues dampened the hopes of the Scandinavians in stoppage time. (3-1)

– New blow for Benzema. His club Al-Ittihad is not counting on him for the Asian Champions League. New disavowal for the 2022 Ballon d’Or, and a more complicated end to his career than expected!

With Annie Gasnier: Ludovic Duchesne, Éric Rabesandratana and Bruno Constant. Technique/Direction Diego Tenorio – David Fintzel/Pierre Guérin.
