Paris Saint-Germain include David Beckham in their starting lineup for tonight's encounter against Barcelona.

Former England captain David Beckham has been included in the Paris Saint-Germain starting lineup for this evening's Champions League clash against Barcelona.

The 37-year-old will operate in a central midfield role alongside Blaise Matuidi, while Lucas Moura has shaken off an injury to start.

There is also a place for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who recently had his two-match suspension overturned.

Meanwhile, left-back Jordi Alba has recovered quicker than expected from a hamstring strain to start for the visitors.

PSG: Sirigu; Jallet, Silva, Alex, Maxwell; Matuidi, Beckham; Moura, Pastore, Lavezzi; Ibrahimovic

Barcelona: Valdes; Alves, Mascherano, Pique, Alba; Busquets, Iniesta, Xavi; Villa, Messi, Sanchez
