class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>After a five-goal thriller in the first leg, Al Hain-Cole expects plenty more goalmouth action when the holders take on Pochettino's men in France
Paris Saint-Germain will be desperate to avoid another Champions League collapse when they welcome Bayern Munich to Parc des Princes for Tuesday’s quarter-final second leg.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men are in a strong position after running out 3-2 winners in Germany, although have been knocked out following impressive first-leg performances against Manchester United and, most memorably, Barcelona in previous knockout stage campaigns.
PSG vs Bayern Munich Latest Odds
Nevertheless, they are available at 19/10 (2.90) with bet365 to complete the job by coming out on top once again over the current holders.

Last week’s result put an end to Bayern’s run of 18 wins and no defeats in 19 Champions League matches and they are 23/20 (2.15) favourites to bounce straight back with a victory here.
None of the six previous encounters between this pair have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on them cancelling each other out in this one.
PSG vs Bayern Munich Team News
Keylor Navas, Layvin Kurzawa and Mauro Icardi are all doubtful while Marquinhos and Juan Bernat are both ruled out, although Marco Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi have both been cleared to play after missing out last time due to COVID-19.
Bayern are still without Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry and Niklas Sule, with Lucas Hernandez, Leon Goretzka and Jerome Boateng all doubts.
PSG vs Bayern Munich Preview
While a 3-2 away win in the first leg would normally leave a team extremely confident of progression, Les Parisiens have more reasons than most to be wary.
This is a side that let a 2-0 first-leg away win slip to lose 3-1 at home to a hardly imperious Manchester United team two seasons ago, and that’s without mentioning the infamous 6-1 defeat in Barcelona following a 4-0 first-leg victory.
What’s more, Hansi Flick’s team was actually extremely dominant in last week’s game, having over 30 shots on goal in an impressive attacking display that regularly missed only the finishing touch.
With the Germans set to play high up the pitch in search of goals against a team that has lost its last three successive Ligue 1 home matches, we are likely to see a lot more opportunity for the devastating counter-attacks of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
PSG vs Bayern Munich Tips and Predictions
All in all, odds of 10/11 (1.91) are surely not to be missed in on another entertaining encounter producing over 3.5 goals for PSG’s fifth Champions League game in six and a fifth in eight for Bayern.
