Bayern must mastermind an audacious comeback after conceding three times at home last week, having lost in each of their previous three visits to the Parc des Princes. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored in Lewandowski’s stead during the first leg, but his and Serge Gnabry’s finesse was clearly missed as Bayern finished only two of their 31 total attempts, per WhoScored.
Hansi Flick is highly unlikely to see his leading frontman return in time for the midweek matchup, while Gnabry is still in isolation due to COVID-19 protocols:
PSG took the spoils from Bavaria despite seeing only one third of the first-leg possession, and the Bayern boss was adamant his side deserved more for their troubles:
Die Roten could have as many as 10 first-team players out of action for the voyage to Paris, with as many as five of those having started in the first leg. Starting center-backs Jerome Boateng and Niklas Süle are each carrying niggles, while Lucas Hernandez is a doubt with a rib injury. Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman are also fitness concerns, which could force Flick into a slight overhaul of his lineup.
The primary worry for Mauricio Pochettino comes in how to replace defensive talisman Marquinhos, who had to be taken off shortly after scoring PSG’s second in Bavaria. The French powerhouse was noticeably more vulnerable after the Brazil international left the field, with questions over whether his replacement will be able to provide the same security. Keylor Navas and Mauro Icardi are questionable ahead of the second leg, meanwhile, but the returns of Mauro Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi following isolation periods is a big boost.
Bayern faltered in their domestic return and are now two without a win after drawing 1-1 with Union Berlin on Saturday, saving some of their strongest assets for a climactic meeting in Paris. The German giant was technically the ‘away’ team when they beat PSG 1-0 in last season’s Champions League final, but Bayern will be in hostile territory in earnest as they target a historic comeback this time around.
