FC Porto vs. Paris Saint-Germain: Lineups

The two favorites in Group A meet for the first time tonight in Portugal. A win by either side will give them a leg up on winning the group, but no matter what happens, these should be the two teams that advance to the knockout round.

Porto manager Vítor Pereira has made only one change to the lineup he used in their win over Zagreb two weeks ago, replacing Steven Defour with Fernando in the midfield.

Carlo Ancelotti's PSG lineup looks a bit different from their 4-1 victory over Dynamo Kiev. The formation remains the same, but there are a few changes. Javier Pastore starts on the bench, replaced by Nenê. In the defense, Alex and Christophe Jallet are on the bench, with Mamadou Sakho and Gregory Van der Wiel getting the start instead. Up front, it's the one man awesome show of Zlatan Ibrahimović...ZLATAN.

FC Porto (4-3-3): Helton; Danilo, Maicon, Alex Sandro, Nicolás Otamendi; Lucho González, João Moutinho, Fernando, James Rodríguez, Silvestre Varela, Jackson Martínez.

PSG (4-3-2-1): Salvatore Sirigu; Thiago Silva, Mamadou Sakho, Maxwell, Gregory van der Wiel; Nenê, Blaise Matuidi, Clément Chantôme, Marco Verratti, Jérémy Ménez, Zlatan Ibrahimović.
