David Beckham will be in the starting line-up when Paris Saint-Germain take on arch rivals Olympique Marseille in a French Cup last 16 tie on Wednesday, coach Carlo Ancelotti said.
Asked if the former England captain, who made his first appearance as a second-half substitute in the 2-0 home win against OM in Ligue 1 on Sunday, would start at the Parc des Princes, Ancelotti told a news conference on Tuesday: "Yes. In the same [defensive midfielder] role as [Marco] Verratti."
Verratti is suspended for the game.
"[Beckham] is in good condition; he has experience, quality to help us win tomorrow," said Ancelotti. "He can play a whole game."
Beckham, 37, joined as a free agent on January 31.
