Yuri Berchiche and Giovani Lo Celso are surprise starters for PSG in the Bernabeu while Real Madrid have selected Isco over Gareth Bale.

Both Yuri and Lo Celso have started to work their way into the PSG set-up in recent weeks, but it is still a huge surprise to see them both start, particularly the latter over Lassana Diarra.
