Real Madrid played very well when they met PSG two weeks ago but still weren't able to get a win at the Parc des Princes. This time, Benítez and his men should be expected to collect all three points while dominating the match against the French side. James Rodríguez is back with the team and should play some minutes, although Benítez will most likely start the players in form.

Real Madrid projected XI: Keylor, Danilo, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Isco, Jesé, Cristiano Ronaldo.

PSG projected XI: Trapp, Aurier, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Maxwell, Motta, Verratti, Matuidi, Di María, Cavani, Ibrahimovic.

With Benzema and Bale out, Real Madrid's lineup is fairly easy to predict given the latest performances. Jesé has been in good shape as of late and he will no doubt get the nod ahead of Lucas Vázquez and Cheryshev.

This will also be Di María's return to the Santiago Bernabéu.
