The opening match of the Champions League round of 16 matches features Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain. This Tuesday, the first of the two legs will be played when the German Champions go to Parc des Princes. With so much on the line when these two titans square up, we can anticipate a real showdown.This season's Champions League has been enjoyable for the Parisians. Galtier's guys were rather amazing to witness and had a new level of confidence when it came to Europe's top opponents, despite finishing second in their group.PSG's recent league performance has been dismal, and last week they were eliminated from the Coupe de France. Under no circumstances can this club be underrated; they are capable of defeating a formidable opponent like Bayern.In terms of European football, Bayern Munich is another team with a unique history. As their ferocious attacking and stern pressing may quickly kill you, they are one of the toughest teams you can imagine playing on the European arena.Their performance in the Champions League this season has been flawless; they have won all six of their games during the group stage, overcoming formidable opponents like Bayern and Inter twice. The Bavarians are also on a very good run of form right now, having won each of their last three games.
Predicted lineup for Paris Saint-Germain (3-4-2-1):The following players are Neymar, Donnarumma, Hakimi, Ramos, Marquinhos, Mendes, Verratti, Fabian Ruiz, Vitinha, Ekitike, Soler.
Predicted lineup for Bayern Munich (3-5-2):Sane, Müller, Musiala, Davies, Kimmich, Goretzka, Upamecano, De Ligt, Cancelo, and Choupo-Moting
There is no doubt that this will be a very competitive game, and both clubs will want to have the upper hand heading into the second leg. Bayern may choose to take a passive approach in which they try to hold off PSG with the hope of winning the match in the return leg.The absence of Messi and Mbappe, along with their terrible play, will cost PSG dearly and prevent them from travelling to the Allianz Arena with a lead. Instead, Bayern will disappoint Paris with a 2-1 victory.
Prediction: PSG 1-2 Bayern Munich
