It is an uphill task for PSG when they welcome Real Madrid for the second leg on Tuesday night. Unai Emery’s men were defeated by a 3-1 score-line in the reverse leg at Bernabeu with the pair of stalemate breaking goals falling in the last 7 minutes of the match.
PSG are also dealt with major selection headaches with Neymar out with a fractured foot. The Brazilian striker is expected to be out of action for another three months.
On the other hand, Real Madrid do have similar issues with their midfield duo Luka Modric and Toni Kroos sweating to prove their fitness. Meantime, there is some hopeful news for Zidane as the influential wing back Marcelo could pass the fitness test on time to take the field at Parc des Princes.
