PSG will host Real Sociedad in the first leg of UCL's last 16

Ligue 1 defending champions PSG will host the Spanish club Real Sociedad at the Parc des Princes in the first leg of the last 16 of the 2023/2024 Champions League on Wednesday, 14 February 2024. PSG qualified for this round as runners-up in Group and the French side qualified from a tough group consisting of Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan and Newcastle. Meanwhile, Sociedad was the winner of Group D, a group containing Inter Milan, Benfica and Salzburg. In the group phase, PSG's talisman Kylian Mbappe and his teammates won, drew and lost twice each and they scored nine goals and conceded eight times in Group F.

Meanwhile, Sociedad remained unbeaten in their group, La Real won three times and drew three times, scoring seven goals and conceding only two. PSG and Sociedad have never met before and this is going to be their first Head-to-head clash in the Champions League history. However, PSG coach, Luis Enrique, is certainly no stranger to Sociedad. The Spanish coach, the former Barca architect, has faced Sociedad ten times, where he achieved five wins, two draws and three defeats (W5-D2-L3). Apart from that, Paris Saint Germain also has Marco Asensio, a former Real Madrid player who has faced Sociedad 13 times. In those meetings, the 28-year-old Spanish striker scored eight wins (W8-D2-L3).

PSG is unbeaten in the last 16 matches in all competitions and they have scored at least 2 goals in the last 9 matches in all competitions. On the other side, Sociedad is without a win in the last 4 matches in all competitions (W0-D3-L1), the 7th-placed currently in La Liga has always failed to score a goal in the last 4 games. It is going to be a decent fixture and it seems that PSG is likely to have an upper hand in this contest when they host Real Sociedad for this match in front of an expected packed home crowd with a capacity of around 50,000 fans.
