Real Madrid are the only Champions League team not to change their squad

Despite struggles in LaLiga and Copa del Rey, Real Madrid are the only side left in the Champions League not to have made changes to their 25 man squad before the knock out stages. The 15 other sides left in the competition have all made changes to their registrations.

MARCA say that Zinedine Zidane has kept the faith with his current squad after not making any signings or sales in the January transfer window and will not be changing the squad that will take on the Champions League as their last shot at success this season.

Their opponents in the last 16, Paris Saint-Germain, have made four changes, with an ex-Real Madrid player Lassana Diarra being signed up with Remy Descamps, Moussa Diaby, Alec Georgen and Lucas Moura all being left out.

Barcelona have also added their new additions, whilst leaving out those who left the club. Philippe Coutinho is cup tied after appearing with Liverpool but Yerry Mina has been signed up, with youngsters David Costas and Jose Arnaiz also being added. Gerard Deulofeu, Javier Mascherano, Rafinha and Arda Turan have all been excluded.

Sevilla have also signed up some new players, with Guilherme Arana, Roque Mesa and Sandro Ramirez all being included. Miguel Layun is cup-tied after featuring for Porto in the group stages. Equally, Michael Krohn-Dehli, Borja Lasso and Walter Montoya have all been left out.
