Bayern Munich team news
Benjamin Pavard is suspended after his red card in the first leg which, combined with Lucas Hernandez's injury, leaves Julian Nagelsmann with somewhat of a headache defensively.
Manuel Neuer and Noussair Mazraoui remain unavailable, while Sadio Mane is expected to remain on the bench after being challenged to earn his place back by Nagelsmann.
Bayern Munich predicted lineup vs PSG
(3-4-2-1): Sommer; Stanisic, Upamecano, De Ligt; Coman, Kimmich, Goretzka, Davies; Sane, Musiala; Choupo-Moting.
PSG team news
Neymar is set to miss the rest of the season due to injury, while Presnel Kimpembe and Renato Sanches will also not be available for this game at least.
Marco Verratti should return to the team after serving a domestic suspension, while Marquinhos is also expected to be available after shaking off a minor injury scare.
Right-back Nordi Mukiele missed training on Monday which may set up the return of Achraf Hakimi. The Morocco international has been sidelined by injury in recent weeks but has also returned to training and has been cleared to play, despite being charged by police over rape allegations - accusations the right-back denies.
PSG predicted lineup vs Bayern Munich
(3-5-2): Donnarumma; Danilo, Marquinhos, Ramos; Hakimi, Zaire-Emery, Verratti, Vitinha, Mendes; Messi, Mbappe,
Bayern Munich vs PSG score prediction
This is a huge game which could easily go either way. On any given day, these two teams can be the best on the planet, but they can also be beatable and unconvincing.
Given this game will be played on Bayern's home turf, the advantage has to go to the Bundesliga side. Since losing their first game in 2022, Nagelsmann's side have not lost at the Allianz Arena, although they have rarely faced anything like a PSG side who will throw caution to the wind in search of goals.
Expect major entertainment here as two heavyweights look to land the knockout blow. PSG should score at least once but, with no away goals anymore, a high-scoring draw would still see them crash out.
Prediction: Bayern Munich 2-2 PSG
