UEFA offer the opportunity to every away side in the Champions League to carry out a practice session at their rival's stadium, to get a feel for the pitch and the arena, but PSG's Basque coach has decided he'd prefer to have his last training session in Paris on Tuesday morning before flying to the Spanish capital.

PSG will arrive at Barajas airport at 18:50 and head straight to the five-star Eurostar Madrid Tower hotel, where a junior suite is around 300 euros a night, housed in the 236 metre high Torre PwC. Emery himself will head to the Bernabéu to give the pre-game press conference.
