Sports Mole previews tonight's Champions League trip to Valencia for Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain.

All eyes were expected to be on new Paris Saint-Germain signing David Beckham in tonight's Champions League trip to Valencia, but the midfielder has failed to reach optimum fitness in time.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti will head to the Mestalla with Beckham as a spectator, as the Ligue 1 outfit try to gain an advantage in the round-of-16 tie, with a place in the quarter-finals up for grabs.

PSG head into the meeting with the Spanish outfit on the back of one loss in their European campaign, while Valencia came second in Group F courtesy of four victories, one defeat and one draw.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to be chosen as PSG's main goal threat in the away leg, while Roberto Soldado should be handed a starting spot up front for the home side.
