Team news: Real Madrid will be forced to work around suspensions for two of their key players this week, as Casemiro and Ferland Mendy picked up their third yellow cards of the tournament in the first leg and are banned for this one. Mendy’s suspension is hardly ideal with Marcelo restricted to indoor training on Monday – although he could still make himself available for the second leg – while Toni Kroos is in the squad after a hamstring injury. On a brighter note, Federico Valverde has recovered from flu in time to take Casemiro’s place in the middle, while Eduardo Camavinga ought to come up against familiar opposition if Kroos’s injury does not allow him to feature from the off. As for PSG, Pochettino would throw Mbappe straight back into the first XI as the Real Madrid-linked man returns from his domestic ban, but the attacker took a stomp to the foot from Idrissa Gueye in training and will need to be double-checked. Ex-Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is set to miss out on a Bernabeu reunion due to his latest calf injury, but Achraf Hakimi and Leandro Paredes have made the squad. Ander Herrera remains out, though, with the Spaniard developing an eye infection while he also attempts to battle his way back from a muscular problem, and there is also no space in the squad for Layvin Kurzawa. Gianluigi Donnarumma can expect to return in goal for Keylor Navas this week, while Georginio Wijnaldum may drop out of the midfield after another uninspiring display at the Allianz Riviera.
