Heynckes backs Real Madrid to see off PSG

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes is confident Real Madrid will recover from their recent malaise and beat Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

“That Madrid is going through a low in the league at the moment is, in my opinion, quite normal, especially if you have won the Champions League twice and been Spanish champions too,” said the man who guided Madrid to the Champions League title in 1998 during his sole season in charge at Santiago Bernabeu.

“You must not write off Real in the Champions League. They have much more experience than Paris Saint-Germain. Much more! I believe they will win the tie.”

“They have a good team for playing in European competition. When we first won the Champions League again in 1998, we finished fourth in the league. I know from personal experience Madrid should never be underestimated.”
