Carlo Ancelotti picks David Beckham to make his full Paris Saint-Germain debut against Marseille in tonight's Coupe de France quarter-final.

Paris Saint-Germain have chosen to hand David Beckham his first start for the club in tonight's Coupe de France quarter-final against Marseille.

Beckham made his PSG debut as a substitute against Marseille on Sunday and makes Carlo Ancelotti's starting XI this evening after an impressive cameo.

PSG captain Jeremy Menez also returns to the side after combining with Beckham to lay on a goal for Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Sunday's 2-0 win.

Marseille are unchanged from that defeat at the Parc des Princes, which means Joey Barton goes up against Beckham for the second time in three days.

PSG: Douchez, Van der Wiel, Camara, Sakho, Maxwell, Chantome, Beckham, Matuidi, Menez, Ibrahimovic

Marseille: Mandanda, Fanni, Nkoulou, Lucas Mendes, Morel, Barton, Romao, Kadir, Valbuena, A. Ayew, Gignac
