Paris Saint-German vs. Valencia: Lineups

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic suspended Carlo Ancelotti has decided to switch up formations and bring in an extra midfielder, rather than going with a two striker formation again. Thiago Motta benefits from this chance and gets a start while Thiago Silva returns in the defense.

After teasing the possibility of David Beckham starting, PSG's January signing will be on the bench.

Valencia's back line is completely changed from the first leg with Aly Cissokho, Antonio Barragán, Victor Ruiz, Jérémy Mathieu all getting the start today. Ever Banega has been dropped in favori of David Albelda, with Tino Costa shifting forward in the midfield and Albelda playing a deeper role.

Paris Saint-Germain starting lineup (4-5-1): Salvatore Sirigu; Thiago Silva, Alex, Maxwell, Christophe Jallet; Blaise Matuidi, Clément Chantome, Javier Pastore, Thiago Motta, Lucas Moura, Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Valencia starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Vicente Guaita; Aly Cissokho, Antonio Barragán, Victor Ruiz, Jérémy Mathieu; Daniel Parejo, Tino Costa; David Albelda, Sofiane Feghouli, Jonas; Roberto Soldado.
