Team News
Benfica are still working around a few of defensive absentees in Joao Victor, Lucas Verissimo and Morato, and while the former is close to recovering from a serious knee injury, he will not be ready for midweek.

Morato (ankle) and Victor (muscle) will not be sidelined for much longer either, but 18-year-old Antonio Silva should continue to man the backline with Nicolas Otamendi for the time being.

Julian Draxler could be in line for some minutes against his parent club if Schmidt rotates his attacking resources, but the hosts may ultimately stick with an unaltered XI from the weekend, with all 11 players who started Saturday's game featuring from the off in the win over Juventus.
Benfica possible starting lineup:
Vlachodimos; Bah, A. Silva, Otamendi, Grimaldo; Florentino, Fernandez; Neres, R. Silva, Mario; Ramos

Paris Saint-Germain
As for PSG, the injury-plagued Renato Sanches just cannot catch a break on the fitness front, as he was only on the pitch for 16 minutes against Nice as a substitute before being forced off with a groin injury - joining Marco Verratti and Presnel Kimpembe on the sidelines.

Verratti (calf) and Kimpembe (hamstring) are not expected to return from their respective issues just yet, but Galtier is still blessed with options in midfield and may consider swapping Fabian Ruiz out for the physical Danilo Pereira here.

Ekitike is also sure to make way for the returning Mbappe, who needs just one more strike to become PSG's all-time record goalscorer in the Champions League, with the Frenchman and Edinson Cavani currently level on 30 apiece.
Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:
Donnarumma; Mukiele, Marquinhos, Ramos; Hakimi, Pereira, Vitinha, Mendes; Messi, Mbappe, Neymar
Prediction: Benfica 1-2 Paris Saint-Germain
