KYLIAN MBAPPE is set to line up against the team where he’s expected to play his football next season as PSG host Real Madrid.
The Parisian superstar is out of contract in the summer with the La Liga leaders the favourites to snap him up.
Visitors Real Madrid were left cursing Uefa after initially being drawn against Benfica in the round of 16.

In addition to Mbappe, Carlo Ancelotti’s men could be lining up against Lionel Messi and Neymar.
Messi has recently recovered from Covid while Neymar is back in training after a long term ankle problem.
