How Real Madrid will line up against Paris Saint German Revealed

Real Madrid are hopeful that Karim Benzema will be able to start Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg in Paris against Paris Saint-Germain.

The centre-forward will travel to Paris and is expected to be available from the start, but head coach Carlo Ancelotti has stated that he will not take any chances with the Frenchman.

Ferland Mendy has been declared fit after suffering a hamstring injury, but the Spanish club is still concerned about the fitness of Benzema, who has missed the team’s last two La Liga games.

There aren’t expected to be many surprises with Mendy returning to the side at left-back, with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric set to line up alongside Casemiro in a midfield three.

Vinicius Junior is also a lock for a starting spot in the final third of the field based on his performance in 2021-22, with the Brazilian scoring 15 goals and assisting 10 times across all competitions.

Ancelotti must make a big decision on the right side of the attack, with Marco Asensio seemingly in charge for the time being.
As a result, Rodrygo, Eden Hazard, and Gareth Bale are all viable options on the right, while Los Blancos could use Federico Valverde as an extra midfielder, with Vinicius and Benzema potentially starting up front.
