Real Madrid completed a 4-1 drubbing of Real Sociedad at the weekend ahead of the critical encounter against Paris-Saint Germain in the UEFA Champions League. However, all is not well ahead of the Round of 16 clash.

Los Blancos head into the game at Bernabeu with some significant handicaps. Casemiro and Ferland Mendy are suspended on the night owing to an accumulation of yellow cards. Moreover, injuries to Marcelo and Toni Kroos have put both players in doubt for these upcoming games.

Carlo Ancelotti’s plans suffer a big blow with these updates, especially at left-back and in midfield. Yet, there is a silver lining to the situation.

According to reports from Miguel Angel Diaz, Kroos is not yet ruled out for the game against PSG. On Tuesday, the German will try to train with the group. The final decision regarding his participation will be based on his feelings in the session.

If he is able to play, the German is expected to partner Luka Modric and Federico Valverde in midfield. However, Eduardo Camavinga leads the race to replace him if Kroos is unable to participate.

After the 1-0 defeat in the first leg, Madrid find themselves in a must-win situation midweek. If Ancelotti’s men cannot win by a margin of at least two goals, it will be the end of their Champions League run this season. However, they do have the home advantage on the night and are expected to see off the struggling French side.
