With Thiago Motta forced to miss out due to injury, Carlo Ancelotti has named the 37-year-old former England captain in his starting line-up as the Ligue 1 leaders look to get a foothold in their last-eight encounter with the 2011 European champions.
The PSG chairman Nasser al-Khelaifi said earlier this week that the club would like Beckham, who signed a five-month deal in January, to remain for the 2013-14 campaign.
"We are going to talk with him about it. But frankly, we really want to keep him with us next season," Khelaifi told the French sports daily L'Equipe.
"He's fantastic, on and off the pitch. Signing David has been one of my best decisions. He has really made an impact in this squad. Everybody loves him."
PSG STARTING XI: Sirigu; Jallet, Alex, Silva, Maxwell; Moura, Beckham, Matuidi, Pastore; Lavezzi, Ibrahimovic.
BARCELONA STARTING XI: Valdés, Alves, Mascherano, Piqué, Alba; Sergio, Iniesta, Xavi; Villa, Messi, Sanchez.
