PSG vs Bayern Munich predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Champions League fixture tonight

Bayern Munich have a big comeback job on for Tuesday night if they want to retain their crown as European champions, as they trail 3-2 to Paris Saint-Germain from the quarter-final first leg.

A snowy Bavaria provided a dose of reality to the team previously seen as favourites to win the Champions League again this year and Bayern must net at least twice without reply if they want to reach the last four. Their task is made more difficult by the fact they are missing key men, including top scorer Robert Lewandowski.

For their part, PSG did lose a big game at home recently – against Ligue 1 leaders Lille – so it’s far from a closed case that the French champions will come up trumps this time around. But they have the added incentive of earning revenge for last year’s Champions League final, where Bayern won in Lisbon, to ensure they wrap up the job properly.

Kylian Mbappe is the second-highest scorer in the competition this season; one more for the talented forward here might put the tie beyond Bayern, as they would then need to match PSG’s haul of three away goals.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the second leg.

When is the match?

The match kicks off at 8pm on Tuesday, 13 April at the Parc des Princes in Paris.

Where can I watch it?

The match will be shown live on BT Sport 3 and BT Sport Ultimate. Subscribers can stream the match via the BT Sport app and desktop website.

What is the team news?

Both teams are facing significant potential absences. PSG are without Marquinhos and Juan Bernat, while goalkeeper Keylor Navas is also a doubt after coming off at the weekend. Mauro Icardi and Layvin Kurzawa must be assessed before the match.

Bayern are missing Robert Lewandowski and Corentin Tolisso, while Serge Gnabry will also be missing. There are doubts over Niklas Sule, Lucas Hernandez and Leon Goretzka, but Kingsley Coman should be fit to play. Jerome Boateng should also make the trip despite his own knock.
