Thiago Silva, Alex included in PSG squad for Barcelona trip
Paris St Germain centre backs Alex and Thiago Silva have been included in Carlo Ancelotti's squad for the Champions League quarter-final return leg at Barcelona on Wednesday despite injury concerns.
Italy midfielder Thiago Motta, who has only played one game since late January because of a recurring groin injury, was also named for the trip.
PSG will be without suspended holding midfielder Blaise Matuidi as the Qatari-backed club look to qualify for the last four after drawing 2-2 at home in the first leg last week.
Thiago Silva remains a doubt after picking up a knock on his knee in the first leg.
The Brazil defender was left out of PSG's squad at Stade Rennes last Saturday while compatriot Alex also missed the 2-0 win because of a thigh problem.
