Real Madrid will lock horns with Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes on Tuesday night as they look to pick up a famous win at the French capital. Los Blancos were held to a scoreless draw by Villarreal in their last outing, so they will be eager to get back to winning ways versus PSG in midweek.
Carlo Ancelotti will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could revert to his strongest first-team for this game. Karim Benzema will probably get the opportunity to lead the line for the Madrid giants if he can pass a late fitness test.
4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Paris Saint-Germain
Thibaut Courtois will feature in between the sticks for Los Blancos after he secured a clean sheet versus Villarreal earlier this month. David Alaba will resume his defensive partnership with Eder Militao at the centre of Ancelotti’s defence as they look to keep the PSG attackers at bay during the game.
Dani Carvajal will hope to give a good account of himself at right-back while Ferland Mendy fills in on the other side as the left-back. Ancelotti will ask both his full-backs to keep a good shape defensively so that they can stop the opposition wingers from getting in behind them out on the flanks.
Nacho will have to settle for a place on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive positions.
Ancelotti could opt for a midfield three of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric for this game. All three of them need to be at the top of their game if Los Blancos are to come away with a positive result from Paris this Tuesday night.
Eduardo Camavinga might have to be content with a place on the bench as he waits for his chance to influence the game in the second half if needed.
Vinicius Junior could get the nod to function as the left-sided wide player while Marco Asensio looks to catch the eye on the right.
Karim Benzema will lead the charge for the Madrid outfit up top if he can recover in time for this game. Luka Jovic will be on stand-by just in case Ancelotti needs him off the bench.
