Real Madrid XI vs PSG: Confirmed squad news and starting line-up

However, Casemiro and Ferland Mendy are both banned for the second leg of the Round of 16 at home to PSG, having accumulated their third respective yellow cards in the competition.

Madrid need to overturn a 1-0 deficit at the Bernabeu to reach the quarter-finals of a competition they have won 13 times.

German veteran Kroos missed the La Liga win over Real Sociedad on Saturday with a hamstring problem but was deemed fit to start. Federico Valverde, who suffered from the flu this weekend, is also back.

Dani Carvajal’s torrid night in Paris didn’t impact Carlo Ancelotti’s selection, with the Spaniard once again preferred over Lucas Vazquez at right-back.

Marcelo came off the bench in the weekend’s 4-1 win but was dealt a knock and he has to settle for a place on the bench, even without Mendy.

Starting XI: Courteous; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Nacho; Modric, Kroos, Fede Valverde; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius

Subtitles: Lunin, Vallejo, Hazard, Marcelo, Jovic, Vazquez, Bale, Ceballos, Rodrygo, Isco, Mariano, Camavinga
