This is a clash between last season’s finalists, as winners, Bayern Munich will be welcoming runners-up Paris Saint-Germain to the Allianz Arena in a clash of the titans.
There have been nine Champions League meetings between these two teams, with Bayern Munich winning 4 games, while Paris Saint-Germain have won 5 matches. Both teams scored a total of 24 goals in those encounters, 12 goals each.
Bayern Munich will be without the world’s best player, Robert Lewandowski, Ron-Thorben Hoffmann, Corentin Tolisso, Douglas Costa, and Malik Tillman due to injury. Paris Saint-Germain, on the other hand, will be without Layvin Kurzawa, Danilo Pereira, Alexandre Letellier, Mauro Icardi, and Juan Bernat, while Marco Verratti due to a positive COVID-19 test. Leandro Paredes is suspended for this clash.
Bayern Munich have had to fight hard to win games this season, but they are winning and they sit top of the Bundesliga, unlike PSG, who are on their worse run in a long time, and they are second in Ligue 1. Lewandowski has been a key figure for the Bavarians, and his absence will be felt, but they should edge this clash.
