Beckham hopes to lead PSG in its first Champions League quarterfinal since 1995.

David Beckham says he feels fit enough to start the biggest game in Paris Saint-Germain's recent history when the club takes on Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Tuesday.

PSG has not played in the quarterfinals of the competition since 1995, when a 19-year-old Beckham was just breaking into the Manchester United team. That year PSG beat Barca in the quarterfinals.

After joining the French leader in January, Beckham has shown he can keep the pace at age 37. He made an impact as a substitute in Friday night's 1-0 home win against Montpellier, which moved PSG provisionally eight points ahead in the league.
