PSG vs Bayern Munich
UEFA Champions League 2017/18 – Group Stage
Date: Wednesday, 27th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
Both PSG and Bayern made positive starts to their Champions League campaign and Wednesday’s duel could turn out to be a key factor in deciding the group winners in the long run.
PSG thrashed Celtic 5-0 away from home on matchday 1 to pick up their fifth win on the bounce then. The team will win one more to make it a six match winning streak before the run coming to an abrupt end with a 0-0 draw at Montpellier last weekend.
Back to Champions League, the Ligue 1 side boast of a strong home record. The only team that beat PSG at the Parc des Princess in the last five seasons is FC Barcelona. The remaining 23 games saw 15 wins and 8 draws.
On the other hand, Bayern’s start to the season is equally good. The team started the season on a 5 match winning run which came to an end away at Hoffenheim three days prior to the 3-0 win against Anderlecht. The Bavarian side surged forward in Bundesliga since, with back-to-back wins against Mainz and Schalke before failing to raise the ante against Wolfsburg this weekend. It was particularly disappointing as the 2-2 draw came after rushing to a 2-0 lead within the first 45 minutes.
The Bundesliga champions had occasional slump in away games at Champions League over the past few seasons. Last year, they lost to Atletico Madrid and FK Rostov. And to Arsenal an year before.
PSG vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
The last four meetings between the two sides was won by the team playing at home. With a pair of wins in the first two meetings, PSG lead the overall h2h with 4 wins and 2 draws.
PSG boast a strong record against German clubs in UEFA fixtures with 8 wins and 2 draws picked up from 13 matches at the expense of 3 losses. They are unbeaten at home with 5 wins and a draw.
Bayern’s overall record against French clubs is quite decent as 17 wins and 5 draws came from 31 meetings, losing 9. But the away record is moderate after having picked 5 wins and 3 draws from 14 games, losing in 6.
PSG vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
We can relay upon PSG when they are playing in front of their home side. The same cannot be said about Bayern Munich for away trips. The Bavarians have already dropped points twice in away matches this season and could struggle against the Ligue 1 side, who are looking complete in all areas of the field.
