Thiago Motta not in PSG squad

Former Barcelona midfielder Thiago Motta has not been included in Paris Saint-Germain’s squad for their trip to the Bernabeu.

The Italian international has suffered extensive injury problems this season but despite making a comeback recently against Sochaux, he has not been risked for Wednesday night’s clash.

The 35-year-old’s position is likely to be taken by former Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra, who was signed by the Parisians in January.

Motta previously won the Champions League at both Barcelona and Inter, while he also enjoyed a stint at Atletico Madrid earlier in his career.
