Real Madrid XI vs PSG: Confirmed squad news, predicted line-ups and most recent Champions League injuries

The 13-time winners enter the round of 16 with a huge draw against the Ligue 1 leaders, who are again seeking their first title.

Benzema is suffering from a hamstring injury and hasn’t played since the 2-2 draw with Elche on January 23.

However, the Frenchman traveled with the team to his homeland and suggested a final training session at the Parc des Princes would decide his involvement at Monday’s pre-match press conference.

“It’s been a lot of work, but I feel a lot better,” he said. “We have the last training session to see if I feel good and I can play tomorrow.”

Gareth Bale started Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Villarreal in Benzema’s absence and will be in contention to do so again if the striker is not deemed ready to start.

Ferland Mendy is fit to start following his own hamstring problem, while Carlo Ancelotti must decide who starts on the right of his attack.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courteous; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius
