PSG’s Champions League progression is in the balance when they host Valencia tonight.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men are favourites to progress, thanks to the 2-1 win they secured in the first leg of their last-16 tie in Spain.
But Valencia were buoyed by Adil Rami’s late goal, and especially by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s extra-time dismissal, which means he will not be able to torment them at the Parc des Princes.
Having seen Real Madrid come from behind to progress, Los Che will be determined to join their compatriots in the next round of the Champions League, and perhaps even meet them all the way in the final, like they did in the year 2000.
But Valencia will have to get the best of David Beckham tonight, if they are to reach the last-eight.
Becks is likely to feature for suddenly shaky PSG, and he is excited and determined to taste Champions League football again.
The last time he played in the competition three years ago, Beckham suffered as AC Milan were thumped 4-0 by his old team, Manchester United.
This time around, Becks insists he will show he still has what it takes to star on the Europe’s top stage.
"I might not be able to run as much as I used to when I was 21, but I'll try,” the 37-year-old told Sky Sports.
"I can still get around the pitch and still play the balls I play.
“My passion hasn't changed, my energy hasn't changed, the way I want to win a game hasn't changed, so it's pretty much the same."
Ancelotti, meanwhile, is confident that PSG are good enough to preserve their lead and progress at Valencia’s expense, even though they are coming into the game on the back of a shock Ligue 1 defeat to minnows Reims.
"We are still in contention in several competitions, and I am confident," Ancelotti said.
"I think Valencia will play their usual game, although I expect them to threaten on the counterattack a little more than normal. We are going to play our own game and use our own qualities.
"I think we have got a great opportunity to get into the quarter-finals."
