PSG will take on Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16

 

The first leg of the Champions League round of 16 will have as one of its main attractions the key to PSG and Bayern Munich in the Parc des Princes this Wednesday, February 15 at 01:30 AM IST.

In a clash of great power, the two teams seek to meet again with their best version and clear up the great doubts that have existed with them during the campaign. Both sides are serious contenders to win the trophy but only one could move to the next round, so winning this one-on-one can mean a balm with a view to the remainder of the campaign.

On the French side, both Mbappe and Messi will be heading to this match after healing sort of their injuries after presenting physical discomfort but it is not very sure that Mbappe will be the first choice in PSG's Playing XI for this massive clash. However, coach Christophe Galtier is confident that his players are part of the main starting lineup. As if that were not enough, they come to this meeting with some concerns, since they were recently finished at the hands of Monaco, it is imperative to take the potatoes out of the fire and verify that the project can meet expectations.

The Bavarians are not arriving at their best either, in the middle of the German season, Nagelsmann's men have left several doubts and their advantage in the championship is barely one point. Although the good news is that they come from thrashing Bochum in their game before the Champions League. In history, PSG comes from winning the last key, when they collided in the Quarterfinals of the 2020-21 season and now they hope to repeat the dose and settle in the next round. However, what happened in the Champions League Final in 2020, when Bayern won the title thanks to Kingsley Coman's goal, cannot go unnoticed.

When preparing predictions for PSG - Bayern, it is worth paying attention to past meetings. The last time both PSG and Bayern met was in 2021 when they played two games. The clashes took place within the framework of the fourth final of the Champions League. In the first meeting, the French side beat their rival with a score of 3-2, and in the second, the German side took revenge with a score of 1-0, but this was not enough to reach the semifinals. Recall that in 2020, the clubs played in the league final: the winner with a score of 1-0 was Bayern.

Probable Playing XI:

PSG: Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Ramos; Mendes; Ruiz, Pereira, Verratti; Soler; Messi, Neymar

Bayern: Sommer; Cancelo, De Ligt, Upamecano, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Musiala, Coman; Choupo-Moting
