The UEFA Champions League is back next week and Real Madrid’s striker Karim Benzema is facing a race against time to be fit and ready for his side’s clash against French Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain. The two European powerhouses were pitted against each other in the round of 16 draw held some weeks ago and it would be a resumption of hostilities between the two sides when they meet in France for the first-leg of the two-legged tie.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Anc3has set his sights on winning another Champions League title for the club and it would be a very huge forward for the team if they can secure a win in the first-leg as a good preparation for the second one. But of course, they would have to be made to sweat for it as PSG are still looking to win their first-ever Champions League title in their history.
They came really close to doing so two seasons ago when they faced Bayern Munich in the final but fell to a 1-0 defeat and had their hopes dashed. Madrid are going to be a stubborn opponents for them but they must defeat their rivals if they want to get any close to winning the title.
