Real Madrid are plagued with injuries and that could be decisive for their Champions League match at the Parc des Princes against PSG. The French squad are very tough to beat and Los Blancos will not be able to count on some of their starters. This is Real's injury report right now:

Ramos might be set to start

Out of all of the injured players Ramos is the one who has the biggest chance to make the list and feature. The Spanish defender rushed his recovery to play against Atlético de Madrid and has been out of the squad ever since the Derby, but he could and should be ready to contribute against PSG. Pepe is injured as well, so Ramos' return seems crucial to improve Real's defensive line and send Nacho to the bench.

Modric and Benzema will try to make it but it won't be easy

These two players picked up injuries during the FIFA break and while they have not trained with the squad since, reports suggest that they are trying their best to feature and help Benítez's side. It would be risky to rush them but Real Madrid could very much need their presence against PSG and Celta de Vigo next Saturday.

What's happening with Pepe?

The Portuguese defender hasn't been training with the squad during the last few weeks and nobody knows how much longer he will be out. Varane is playing very well but Pepe's experience could be very useful against top caliber teams like PSG.

James and Carvajal are out

These two players could try to play the return game against PSG but they will not be available at the Parc des Princes.
