The first leg was something of a tight, cagey affair, but the amount of top players on display makes a tie between these Spanish and French giants a compelling fixture.

Real Madrid will have to overcome a 0-1 deficit to progress against PSG and make it to the quarter-finals, following a last-gasp winner from Kylian Mbappé a fortnight ago. They do not have a good recent history when in this position, having lost nine out of their last 10 Champions League knockout ties when behind from the first leg. Paris Saint Germain have, though, been eliminated from three of the eight Champions League ties when they’ve been ahead after the first leg. 

Mbappé had been a major injury doubt for the French side in the run up to the game, but he starts tonight in that famous front three alongside Mess and Neymar. However, former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos remains sidelined due to injury, though he has made the emotional trip to the Benarbeu with his new teammates even so.

Midfielders Toni Kroos and Fede Valverde are back for Real Madrid after missing the recent La Liga win against Real Sociedad. Gareth Bale is also fit and available to Carlo Ancelloti, but only makes the bench. 

There is then an embarrassment of riches on show from both teams, not least Lionel Messi. Now at PSG, the ex-Barcelona icon will return to Spain and likely face a rather hostile reception at the home of his former side’s great rivals, as will Neymar.

Here's how they line up:

Real Madrid: Courtois, Carvajal, Eder Militao, Nacho, Alaba, Modric, Valverde, Kroos, Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius Junior.

Subs: Vallejo, Hazard, Marcelo, Lunin, Jovic, Lucas, Bale, Ceballos, Rodrygo, Isco, Mariano, Camavinga.

PSG: Donnarumma, Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes, Paredes, Danilo Pereira, Verratti, Messi, Mbappe, Neymar.

Subs: Michut, Simons, Navas, Icardi, Di Maria, Dagba, Wijnaldum,Diallo, Draxler, Kehrer, Gueye, Ebimbe.
