The likes of BBC and MCN cause great fear among rival defences, and on Wednesday a great battle will be on display between these two attacking tridents in an intense Champions League clash. Which trident will lead their team to European glory?
Paris Saint-Germain’s frontmen, Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar rule Ligue 1 and have terrorised Europe this season.
But they are not alone.
Real Madrid provoke nightmares in rival defences when they hear the names of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.
MCN’s scoring record
- 2017/18 71 goals (Cavani 28, Neymar 28, Mbappe 15)
BBC’s scoring record
- 2013/14 59 goals (Cristiano 33, Benzema 15, Bale 11)
- 2014/15 76 goals (Cristiano 43, Benzema 17, Bale 16)
- 2015/16 77 goals (Cristiano 40, Benzema 23, Bale 14)
- 2016/17 47 goals (Cristiano 25, Benzema 13, Bale 9)
- 2017/18 40 goals (Cristiano 24, Benzema 7, Bale 9)
Estadio Santiago Bernabeu will host the first leg while the second match of this highly anticipated battle will be held at Parc des Princes.
PSG’s frontmen have been in full effect this season while Madrid’s BBC are recovering their form after a sluggish, injury-hit campaign so far.
Despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s dull performances this season, he has transformed into a different player when back in the Champions League. The Portuguese striker has won the top scorer trophy in the last five editions and is also the leading marksman in the tournament this season.
