Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm GMT. The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport Extra.


Real Madrid retained top spot in the La Liga table at the weekend as goals from Isco, Cristiano Ronaldo and Jese gave them a 3-1 home win over Las Palmas. The Castilian side have the best defensive record in the Spanish top flight, with just four goals conceded in their 10 matches to date.

Real have not lost a competitive match since their defeat to Juventus in the first leg of last season's Champions League semi-final in May. The hosts are also on an eight-match unbeaten run against French opponents, winning five and drawing three.

Keylor Navas and Sergio Ramos are both expected to start against Paris Saint-Germain after they sat out the win over Las Palmas with minor knocks. Dani Carvajal (ankle) and Karim Benzema (hamstring) could also return, but Luka Modric (hip) is a doubt.

Laurent Blanc's Paris Saint-Germain are unbeaten across all competitions this season, winning all but three of their fixtures to date. The Parisians have a 10-point lead at the top of Ligue 1, with former Real star Angel Di Maria scoring at the weekend to give them a narrow win at Rennes.

Defender David Luiz is racing to recover from a knee problem for the trip to Spain, while attacking midfielder Javier Pastore (illness) could also return.

What managers say

Rafael Benitez: "We played well in the first half [against Las Palmas], we got off to a sensational start. That kind of early lead subconsciously puts you at ease. We talked about maintaining that intensity and scoring another goal, but that's not how things played out. We weren't able to build on that good start to the first half."

Laurent Blanc: "Overall, we dominated from start to finish, even if Rennes had the ball a little more, particularly in the second half. In the final 20 minutes, we took advantage of the effort Rennes had put in. You can't change the team around like that and expect to be as clinical. When you have Champions League games, you have to think about them too."
