PSG vs Real Sociedad live score, result, updates, highlights, lineups from UEFA Champions League

Paris Saint-Germain take on Real Sociedad in the French capital for the first leg of their Round of 16 clash in the UEFA Champions League.

Sociedad topped Group D, which included Inter Milan, Benfica and RB Salzburg, while PSG could only finish runners-up to Borussia Dortmund in the ‘group of death’ that also included AC Milan and Newcastle United.

Luis Enrique is set to have Kylian Mbappe fit to play tonight despite a slight injury concern and will also see key players return to the starting XI as he rested many at the weekend.

For La Real, they will unfortunately be without their skipper Mikel Oyarzabal who is suffering from injury. Can Imanol Alguacil’s side spring the first major surprise of the 2023/24 knockout phase and claim an important first-leg victory?
