Real Madrid host Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their last-16 tie tonight.
Zinedine Zidane’s men have struggled for large portions of the current campaign and their La Liga performance in particular has been disappointing.
They will be without full-back Dani Carvajal through suspension, but Casimiro is expected to feature after being rested against Real Sociedad over the weekend.
On the other hand, PSG are hoping to take a giant step towards the next round. The French giants lost to Barcelona at the same stage last season, winning the first leg 4-0 before Neymar inspired Barca to a 6-1 win in the return game.
Thiago Motta is not available for selection while former Real midfielder Lassana Diarra is set to start in his place behind the star-studded front three of Neymar, Cavani and Kylian Mbappe.
Meanwhile, Liverpool face Porto in another match to be played tonight.
The Reds are unbeaten against Porto, having played them four times in all competitions (W2 D2). Their two encounters in Portugal both ended in draws.
