Paris Saint-Germain's star recruit David Beckham trained with the team on Tuesday (March 5) ahead of their Champions League round of 16 second leg match at home to Valencia. Wednesday's (March 6) game will be Beckham's first in the Champions League since 2010 when he played for AC Milan. The former England captain, who signed a short-term deal with PSG in January, could start the match unless PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti decides to field Clement Chantome or Thiago Motta returns from injury. Ancelotti is likely to change his centre back pairing with captain Thiago Silva in the running to feature for the first time in more than seven weeks after recovering from a thigh problem. The Brazilian's return would be a boost to PSG, who recorded a 2-1 win at Valencia in the first leg. The team will play Wednesday's match without Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is suspended after being sent off in the first leg.
