Real Madrid hopes to have their entire squad available to face PSG

While PSG and Real Madrid will meet in a few days for the knockout stages of the Champions League, the people of Madrid are not exempt from physical concerns. But his coach, Carlo Ancelotti, is confident that many of his injured players will return during the week. 

Eliminated against Bilbao in the Copa del Rey (0-1) and the narrow winner against Granada this weekend (1-0), Real Madrid is experiencing a wave of injuries to its squad. But the merengue coach, Carlo Ancelotti, seems confident that all his absent players will return for the clash against PSG in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16, which will be played next Tuesday. 

"Today we have six players out and next week, I hope to have them all back", Ancelotti said. PSG's future rivals are especially wary of Karim Benzema. The French international, absent for two weeks with a left thigh injury, is scheduled to train during the week. 

Among the other injured starters, Ferland Mendy is the most uncertain for the trip to Paris; while Casemiro and Vázquez, sick this Sunday, should be able to return without too many problems. Real Madrid will face Villarreal next Saturday, a game that is not easy, especially before facing PSG the following Tuesday. 

Although Carlo Ancelotti's starting eleven has changed very little since the beginning of the season, the merengue team's line-up this weekend will be a first clue as to the form of their players ahead of traveling to the Parc des Princes.
