Kick-Off: 19:45 BST
Date: Wednesday 14, February 2018
Venue: Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid
Referee: Gianluca Rocchi (Italy)
Daniel Carvajal is out through suspension, this will give a big headache to boss Zinedine Zidane as he fears Neymar on the left-flank.
Casemiro was rested in the weekend’s La Liga game, he will be recalled to the starting eleven for this big game.
Jesús Vallejo and Luca Zidane are both out through injury.
Paris Saint Germain
Edinson Cavani is the only concern for the manager ahead of this game. He missed weekend’s game and is doubtful for the first leg. The rest squad is fully fit to choose from.
Thiago Silva, Marco Verratti and Layvin Kurzawa all were rested on the weekend, they will return to the lineup for this game.
Real Madrid have won 3 of their last 5 games against Paris Saint Germain in all campaigns.
Real Madrid have lost only 1 of their last 6 games in Champions League.
PSG have won their last 6 games in Champions League, conceding only 2 goals.
Real Madrid 2 – 1 PSG, tough and entertaining game.
Cristiano Ronaldo likely to continue his top form in Champions League.
Neymar would be the man to watch, this is the first time he is facing a Spanish top club since his summer move to French side.
