PSG come into the game on the back of three successive wins in Ligue 1, the latest of which saw a 1-0 triumph at home to Strasbourg this past weekend. Neymar scored the goal in that match for the Parisians, but is suspended for this continental clash.

Real returned to winning form in La Liga this past Saturday with a hard-fought 3-2 home win over Levante. Los Blancos’ goals were scored by Karim Benzema and Casemiro, easing the pressure on manager Zinedine Zidane.
