Real Madrid and PSG players observe a minute's silence ahead of their Champions League knockout clash at the Parc des Princes Stadium in Paris, France, March 7, 2018

When Real Madrid faced Paris Saint-Germain in a Champions League knockout clash in 2018, they made it through with a 2-1 second-leg victory in Paris. Can you name their XI from that night?

On March 6th, 2018, Los Blancos travelled to the French capital as the strong favourites to make it through, having gone into the match with a 3-1 lead from the first leg at the Bernabeu.

Zinedine Zidane’s men were looking to win their third successive Champions League, a feat unprecedented in the modern era, having dispatched Italian champions Juventus and city rivals Atletico Madrid in the 2016 and 2017 finals.

They would eventually triumph with a 3-1 victory over Liverpool in the final in Kyiv, but before that they had to make it past Unai Emery’s PSG side – who boasted a fearsome front three of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria.

Cavani did get on the scoresheet for the Parisiens that night, but their fightback was short-lived and futile, with their task made extra tough after Marco Verratti’s sending off in the second half.

During that three-peat era, Zidane’s Madrid were known for playing a 4-3-3 system, with some era-defining figures in midfield and attack. Some of those featured here, but others missed out as the French coach instead opted for a 4-4-2 formation.
