Crucial game for Real Madrid, who visit Paris Saint Germain’s Parc des Princes with a 3-1 lead on aggregate they must protect if they don’t want to spend the last few months of the 2017/18 season playing without a chance of winning a trophy.
Marcelo, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are all back with the team after recovering from their injuries, and while the two midfielders might not feature in the starting lineup, they will be ready to come off the bench if needed.
PSG will be without Neymar and Di Maria is expected to replace the Brazilian star in the lineup. Real Madrid will need to make PSG care about the defensive part of the game if they want to increase their odds.
Paris: Areola; Dani Alves, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Kurzawa; Verratti, Thiago Motta/Diarra, Rabiot; Mbappé, Cavani, Di María
Out: Neymar (ankle)
Doubtful: Pastore (calf)
Real Madrid: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kovačić, Isco; Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo
