Team News & Lineups: Paris Saint Germain has spent massive amount of money this summer and Champions League is their priority a competition they have never won before. Bayern Munich on the other hand are bonafide European giants having won the trophy of 5 separate occasions. PSG has closed the quality gap between them and other top european clubs and this game will give us a very good idea where do they stand in terms of quality.
Neymar Jr will be back for the Bayern Munich clash having been rested over the weekend while Angel Di Maria might also start in midfield alongside Verrati and Rabiot. Cavani to lead the line while Neymar and Mbappe to start on the wings in three man attack. As far as Bayern are concerned their form has been shaky this season and Lewandowski to start upfront with James Rodriguez, Robben and Kimmich to start in attacking roles ahead of Vidal and Thiago.
This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Wednesday night, Confirmed team news will be available 1 hour before the kickoff.
Match Predictions: Hard to predict this one as both sides are equally matched on paper however with home advantage PSG are slightly favourites. If Cavani and Neymar put their penalty saga behind play as a team PSG might as well have upper hand in this game. This Bayern Munich side is not as ruthless as they have been in the past few years and good teams can frustrate them and PSG have enough about them to get a positive result here. Im going with a narrow PSG win on Wednesday night.
