Zidane cut to leave Real Madrid after PSG defeat

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is feeling the heat after the Spanish giants lost 3-0 away to Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League opener.

It was the first time in 578 matches that Madrid failed to register a shot on target and Jose Mourinho is Paddy Power's 6-5 favourite for the Santiago Bernabeu hotseat when Zidane eventually leaves.

Former Juventus manager Max Allegri is next in the betting at 11-4 and Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino has been cut to 9-2 to swap London for Madrid.

Angel Di Maria netted a brace against his old club before Gareth Bale had his lobbed goal ruled out for handball by VAR with an added-time strike from Thomas Meunier sealing maximum points on matchday one for PSG.

The French champions are a best-priced 8-1 to lift the trophy with Manchester City 3-1 market leaders after a 3-0 success against Shakhtar Donetsk and Barcelona as short as 9-2 after a goalless stalemate away to Borussia Dortmund. Real Madrid are out to 15-1 with RedZone.

Zidane has made a modest start to his second spell in charge of Real Madrid, who have two wins and two draws from their opening four La Liga assignments.

They face a difficult return to domestic matters and can be backed at 7-5 to win on Sunday against La Liga leaders Sevilla, who are managed by former Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui.

Key stats
  • West Brom have lost one of their last 10 matches against Stoke
Expert verdict
West Brom have lost just two games this season and they should be too strong for Stoke at the Hawthorns. The Baggies are top following Leeds’ defeat to Sheffield Wednesday and they can cement their place in pole position against a side who have won just one of their last five away league fixtures.
