Keylor Navas and PSG to face Real Madrid in Champions League
Keylor Navas and PSG will face Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium on Tuesday with both clubs fighting for the top spot in their Champions League group.
The Costa Rican goalkeeper posted a clean sheet when the two clubs met in September. Through PSG’s four Champions League fixtures this season, Navas has yet to allow a goal.
But Tuesday in Madrid will mark Navas’s biggest test yet. And, of course, it’ll be against his former club.
While PSG has already qualified for the Round of 16, win or a draw Tuesday will guarantee PSG first place in Group A — and, theoretically, an easier opponent in the knockout stages.
Real Madrid vs. PSG: Santiago Bernabéu Stadium (Madrid), 2 p.m. CST. TV: ESPN Internacional (Costa Rica).
