Paris Saint-Germain vs. Real Madrid: Lineups

The lineups are out for Wednesday's most exciting Champions League clash.

The starting lineups have been released for the pick of Wednesday's Champions League action, in which Paris Saint-Germain play host to Real Madrid. Both of these sides have won their opening couple of matches, and are expected to be closely matched at the Parc des Princes.

There are no real surprises for either side, and least of all for the hosts. They're fielding just about their strongest starting 11, which includes former Madrid man Ángel Di María in attack. He goes up against his former club for the first time since he left for Manchester United last year.

Meanwhile, Madrid are boosted by the return of a few players from injury. Sergio Ramos and Danilo were both doubtful, but have been named in Rafael Benítez's lineup. Luca Modrić, on the other hand, is only fit enough to make an otherwise inexperienced bench.

Paris Saint-Germain starting lineup (4-3-3): Kevin Trapp; Maxwell, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Serge Aurier; Blaise Matuidi, Thiago Motta, Marco Verratti; Edinson Cavani, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Ángel Di María

Real Madrid (4-2-3-1): Keylor Navas; Marcelo, Raphaël Varane, Sergio Ramos, Danilo; Toni Kroos, Casemiro; Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco, Lucas Vázquez; Jesé.
