Bayern Munich vs PSG
UEFA Champions League
Date: 8 March 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
We are ready for another clash of the titans in the elite continental competition as Bayern Munich host PSG in the reverse game of the UEFA Champions League R16 clash on Wednesday evening at Allianz Arena.
The Bavarians are big favorites to advance after the 0-1 victory in the return game in French capital. Nevertheless, we can never underestimate the strength of PSG who have in-form Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi in their ranks.
Mbappe and Messi have been phenomenal in the Ligue 1 clashes since the mentioned loss to Bayern Munich.
They have inspired three successive domestic league wins despite a tough schedule and the clashes against the likes of Lille, Marseille, and Nantes.
Mbappe broke record and became the best scorer in the history of PSG on Saturday evening when he bagged one of his team’s four goals in the drubbing of Les Canaris.
Les Parisiens are now eight points clear at the top of the league standings and they will be extremely motivated to stay alive in the elite continental competition by clinching a victory in Munich.
Bayern were also successful at the weekend, beating Stuttgart 1-2 on the road. The good news for Julian Nagelsmann is the return of Sadio Mane who came on from the bench to substitute the goalscorer Erik Maxim Chuopo-Moting four days ago.
Nevertheless, we don’t expect Mane to start on Wednesday due to his physical condition.
Bayern Munich vs PSG Head-to-head
- Bayern Munich won five of the last six head to head matches against PSG, keeping their net untouched in three of the previous four meetings.
- The Bavarians were the better team in the first leg played almost a month ago at Parc des Princes, but it is worth noting that Les Parisiens were without injured Mbappe (only came on as a late sub) on the occasion.
- Three of the last four head to head outings between these teams finished in Bayern Munich’s 1-0 wins.
