Match preview

Ninety mins that could possibly make or break Christophe Galtier's time in the Paris Saint-Germain hotseat wait for on Wednesday night, as Bayern Munich invite the French champs to the Allianz Sector in the 2nd leg of their Champions Organization last-16 face-off.

A singular strike from ex-PSG item Kingsley Coman was enough to drive the Bavarians to a 1-0 first-leg win 3 weeks back, as an acquainted feeling of deja vu rears its awful go to the ardent Parisiens.

Shades of the 2019-20 last developed in the French capital throughout Bayern's reunion with PSG, that shed the showpiece event three years ago to a Coman victor, and it was an identical story when the German champs came to town for the initial leg of their last-16 tie.

On Valentine's Day, there was no love shed in between Coman and also PSG, that succumbed to a 53rd-minute winner from their previous academy graduate, and also Julian Nagelsmann's side survived a late sending for Benjamin Pavard to place one foot firmly in the last eight.

Additionally halfway there to revenge over PSG for eliminating them in the 2020-21 quarter-finals, Bayern ought to feel hopeful of staying clear of simply a second last-16 leave from their last 12 Champions League projects - the seasonal German champions bowed out at this moment to Liverpool in 2018-19.

In addition, not considering that the 2010-11 campaign have Bayern been gotten rid of from the Champions Organization when winning the initial leg of a knockout tie, while 15 of their last 17 top-tier European video games at the Allianz Arena have finished in victory, consisting of all three of their group-stage games against Barcelona, Inter Milan and Viktoria Plzen this period - with 3 tidy sheets in tow.

Not given that April 2018 have Bayern stopped working to score in your home in the Champions League, and Nagelsmann's males continued to be in control of the tightly-fought Bundesliga title race thanks to a 2-1 gain Stuttgart on Saturday, just a couple of hrs before a new chapter of background was composed for PSG.

While more unwanted safeguarding was a minor blot on the note pad, PSG's 4-2 gain Nantes in Ligue 1 at the weekend will drop in history for the French champions, who engraved Kylian Mbappe's name into their document publications as the club's all-time top goalscorer.

Level with Edinson Cavani on 200 objectives for PSG heading into the contest, Mbappe struck PSG's fourth and also final objective late on prior to letting feeling take over, but there is little time for the 24-year-old to bask in Parisian splendor while their European fate hangs in the balance, again.

With the axe hovering precariously over his head, Galtier surely knows what is coming if PSG are removed from the Champions Organization last 16 for the fifth time in seven seasons, as well as the funding titans have actually only proceeded from among their six Champions League ko ties in which they have actually shed the initial leg.

PSG handled to take seven points from their three Champions Organization group-stage video games when traveling previously this period, but not considering that October 2020 have they handled to maintain a European tidy sheet away from house - a run of 12 games with their unstable protection being breached.

From the 12 previous meetings between Bayern and PSG, the German champs have six victories to their name, while the French champs have actually likewise acquired a half-dozen success, yet Wednesday's video game will certainly confirm to be an unfortunate 13 for one supervisor.

Pavard's late sending in the initial leg indicates that the Frenchman will offer a one-match suspension right here, leaving Nagelsmann with quite the defensive difficulty while Lucas Hernandez continues his healing from his ACL injury.

Needs to Nagelsmann linger with a back 3, Josip Stanisic might align along with Dayot Upamecano and also Matthijs de Ligt besides 3 started the gain Stuttgart, while Manuel Neuer as well as Noussair Mazraoui are keeping Hernandez business in the medical bay.

The injury-plagued Sadio Mane was able to make an appearance off the bench versus Stuttgart, yet Nagelsmann has actually warned the ex-Liverpool male that he must fight for his right to make the beginning XI, and an additional alternative getaway is seemingly on the cards for the Senegal international as Thomas Muller and also Leroy Sane complete to join Jamal Musiala in the final third.

On the other hand, PSG have announced that Neymar will now miss out on the remainder of the period as he prepares to undertake ankle surgery, while Presnel Kimpembe (Achilles) is also out for the long term, yet Renato Sanches has recouped from a hamstring problem and is in the squad.

In another midfield increase, Marco Verratti is back from a domestic suspension and also will likely come in for Warren Zaire-Emery - that will certainly transform 17 on Wednesday - even with the teenager's captivating showing during a 57-minute cameo in the very first leg.

Over the past week, PSG have been rocked by costs of rape brought versus right-back Achraf Hakimi - which the right-back refutes - however he is currently complimentary to leave the nation as well as must be available for option as he battles back from a thigh injury.

Bayern Munich possible beginning lineup:
Sommer; Stanisic, Upamecano, De Ligt; Coman, Kimmich, Goretzka, Davies; Sane, Musiala; Choupo-Moting

Paris Saint-Germain feasible starting lineup:
Donnarumma; Pereira, Marquinhos, Ramos; Hakimi, Ruiz, Verratti, Vitinha, Mendes; Messi, Mbappe

We say: Bayern Munich 2-2 Paris Saint-Germain (Bayern win 3-2 on accumulation).
Despite having regular ankle target Neymar seeing an additional crucial European competition from the sidelines, the dangerous Messi-Mbappe mix can no doubt problem a ravaged Bayern backline, and Wednesday's 2nd leg ought to definitely meet the invoicing.

While undoubtedly with the ability of wiping out Bayern's remarkable protective home document in Europe, PSG were revealed on a number of occasions in their recent sway Lille and Nantes, and the prolific Bavarians can match their visitors' ruthlessness to breakthrough to the last 8 and prolong the Parisiens' European agony.
