Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has described Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema as "one of the most underrated players in the world".

The capital clubs are set to clash in a heavyweight Champions League group stage match on Wednesday night as the pair vie for top spot in Group A.

Ahead of the visit of Zinedine Zidane's men, Tuchel chose to focus on the qualities of Los Blancos' French striker, who has long played second fiddle to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale.

"It feels like he's been at Real Madrid for 25 years! We saw him against Levante and it's scary, he's one of the most underrated players in the world," Tuchel told Marca.

"He's top class, very difficult to defend against because he doesn't only play as a number nine. He goes wide, he goes everywhere.

"He has a lot of quality and crosses well, he's good at heading - what more can I say?"

PSG and Real Madrid met in the first knockout stage of the Champions League in the 2017-18 season, with Los Blancos running out 5-2 winners on aggregate. body check tags ::
