PSG host Real Madrid in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie, with the hosts hoping to overturn a 3-1 defeat from their first leg at the Bernabeu.
Madrid, buoyed by the presence of the 2017/18 Champions League top-scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo (11), will be looking to progress to the quarter finals and mount a charge for their third UCL title in four years.
PSG have been shaken by the news that the world’s most expensive player, Neymar, has fractured a metatarsal in his right foot, and is expected to be out for the remainder of the season. Angel Di Maria is expected to deputise in his place for the clash against Madrid on Tuesday night.
PSG are also reportedly confident that centre-back Marquinhos, midfielder Marco Verratti and forwards Kylian Mbappe and Edison Cavani will be ready after minor fitness concerns ahead of the clash.
