Paris Saint-Germain have decided to go with one man in attack in the shape of Edinson Cavani as the French side travel to face Benfica in the Champions League this evening.

The visitors have called on Lucas Moura to provide attacking support, while promising 18-year-old Adrien Rabiot is also given a chance to impress on the European stage.

The home side have called on the services of striker Lima, who will be supported by the attacking talents of Lazar Markovic, Enzo Perez and Nicolas Gaitan.

At the back, Benfica have stuck with their trusted defensive partnership of Ezequiel Garay and Luisao as they look to produce a shock home victory against the visitors.

Benfica: Artur, Luisao, Maxi Pereira, Garay, Sílvio, Fejsa, Gaitan, Matic, Perez, Lima, Markovic

Paris Saint-Germain: Sirigu, Marquinhos, Camara, Digne, Traoré, Ménez, Thiago Motta, Rabiot, Pastore, Lucas, Cavani
