Predicted Line-Ups

Both sides are missing key players in the quarters, most notably Bayern's Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, so how will they line up for the UCL quarter-final first leg?

Bayern Munich Predicted 11

We expect Choupo-Moting will step in for Lewandowski, with Serge Gnabry ruled out of the first leg due to having tested positive for the coronavirus.

Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman will provide the pace on the flanks, with intelligent Thomas Muller floating around in attack.

Out: Robert Lewandowski (knee), Douglas Costa (ankle), Corentin Tolisso (tendon), Malik Tillman (ACL), Ron-Thorben Hoffmann (knee), Marc Roca (unspecified), Serge Gnabry (coronavirus)

Doubtful: None

PSG Predicted 11

Pochettino faces a real problem in midfield, as Marco Verratti has been ruled out due to Covid-19 while Danilo Pereira is suffering from an injury.

In addition, Leandro Paredes is facing a suspension, thus leaving no option but to recall Ander Herrera in the double-pivot alongside Idrissa Gueye.

Form Guide

Bayern Munich have not been as clinical as they were last year but have still been a force to reckon with this season.

The German giants have excellent players in their ranks and hold a slight upper hand going into this game, having beaten PSG in the 2020 UCL final.

Latest outing: RB Leipzig 0-1 Bayern Munich, 03/04

Paris Saint-Germain are not having the best campaign at the moment and face intense competition from Lille, Monaco, and Lyon in the Ligue 1 title race.

The French champions did however beat Barcelona in the round-of-16 and will be intent on a similar result this week, especially with talesman Neymar back in the side!

Prediction

Bayern have goals in abundance even without Lewandowski, but the Bavarian giants cannot expect to march to an emphatic first-leg victory like they did against Lazio, even with PSG stuttering in Ligue 1.

The two teams both know each other's strengths and weaknesses as they prepare to renew hostilities once again, so we are backing a draw in the first leg of the quarter-final tie.
