UEFA Champions League

Starting XI: Real Vs PSG

Real Madrid host French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, with the sides having battled it out to a draw two weeks ago.

UEFA Champions League

Teams: Real Madrid vs Paris Saint-Germain

Venue: Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid

Time: 9.45pm

The hosts are expected to be without Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema for the clash, while PSG's Javier Pastore and Marquinhos are also definite absentees.

Los Blancos come into the tie unbeaten in 26 of their past 29 matches in Europe, including qualifiers, while the French giants haven't conceded a goal in their past three encounters.

Real haven't conceded to PSG in the last three matches between the two clubs, including the last match in this group that ended in a goalless stalemate.

PSG's Angel Di Maria returns to his former side, where he spent four successful years, and will be relishing the opportunity to perform well against his old colleagues.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored four more UCL goals than any other player, in both teams, taking part in tonight's clash, having put away five strikes already this season.

Marco Verratti, who was linked with a move to Los Blancos last season, has been in great form for Laurent Blanc's side in this campaign, but will be looking to avoid a yellow card, as he will miss his team's next match in Europe if he is issued one.
