The first quarter-final match between Bayern Munich and PSG will take place on Wednesday. Both teams will join this meeting weakened.
Douglas Costa, Robert Lewandowski, Corentin Tolisso and Javi Martinez will be missing from the home team due to injuries healed. Additionally, Serge Gnabry will not perform due to the coronavirus infection.
It is also unknown how serious Marc Roca injury is. He has not trained with the team recently.
Juan Bernat, Mauro Icardi and Layvin Kurzawa will be missing from the team from Paris due to an injury. Italians Alessandro Florenzi and Marco Veratti will also not play due to coronavirus infection. Leandro Paredes pauses for the cards.
As you can see, Hansi Flick and Mauricio Pochettino have big problems with staff before the most important matches of the season.
The PSG team will be joined by Neymar, who has just returned from an injury. In his first performance after his return, however, he presented himself poorly. PSG lost to Lille, and the Brazilian saw the red card in this game.
Additionally, looking at the latest results of both teams, Bayern Munich is in a much better form. In the last five games, the Bavarians have had five wins. Their balance of goals at that time was 14 goals scored and 4 conceded.
During this time, PSG had 2 victories, 1 game tied and 2 matches lost. The balance of goals is 9 goals scored and 6 goals conceded.
Additionally, checking the history of matches between both clubs, Bayern Munich turned out to be the winner 4 times in the last 5 matches. PSG was victorious once. The balance of goals in these games is 9 goals scored by Bayern and 5 by PSG.
Both teams remember the final of the previous edition of the Champions League, won by the Munich team 1-0. The goal in this game was scored by the PSG homegrown Kingsley Coman.
It is also worth paying attention to a peculiar fact. In the history of matches between both teams, the host team has always won. The exception to this rule was the 1994 match, when PSG scored a 0-1 victory in Munich.
The expected lineups are as follows:
Bayern Munich: Neuer – Pavard, Sule, Alaba, Davies – Kimmich, Goretzka, Sane, Muller, Coman – Choupo-Moting
PSG: Navas – Kehrer, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo – Gueye, Herrera, Di Maria, Neymar, Mbappe – Kean
Here’s what the coaches said before the match:
Hansi Flick: “It’s a new match and Paris have a new team with a new coach. But on the whole not too much has changed since the final last year. Paris have a strong defence and obviously their quality up front is outstanding. We need to be able to cut off their passing. That also means putting the person with the ball under pressure as soon as possible. Manuel [Neuer] was outstanding in last year’s final. Will that be in the heads of the Paris attackers? I don’t know. But it is an advantage for our team to have a world-class keeper in goal.”
Mauricio Pochettino: “In the knockout stages you can never rule a team out. We’re playing the champions of Europe and of the world. We respect them, but we have faith in our ability and we’ve come here to win. Bayern are a very well-organised team, playing with a high defensive line and with attacking players able to win a game individually. We will have to find the right balance, not overcommit and be careful not to lose the ball in dangerous areas.”
