With so many stars getting ready to take the pitch, who's going to be able to pull out the win? For PSG, all eyes will be on Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Jr. and others. 

With Paris Saint-Germain being the home team, they're slight favorites to come away with the victory. However, Karim Benzema, Vinicius Jr. and others could care less about that. They'll hope to record an upset here. 

It'll be on PSG to try and prevent that from happening. If you ask manager Mauricio Pochettino, he knows that this will be a difficult meeting for his players as a whole. 

"It's a tie that could be a Champions League final with these names, players and quality," Pochettino said this week. "We respect Real Madrid, they're one of the biggest clubs in the world.

"Their 13 Champions League titles tell you it isn't just about players or coaches, it's about the strength and internal structure of a club. PSG have been waiting to win this trophy for over 50 years. We're the challengers. We're trying to build a team to get closer to that dream."

From Poch's chair, he's looking at things as if PSG were the underdogs. Madrid has plenty of confidence for this one, which will of course making things all the more dramatic. Get ready for what should be a fantastic tilt.
