Bayern Munich vs PSG, Champions League 07.04.2021
A rematch of last year’s finals awaits us on Wednesday evening when defending champions Bayern Munich face off the beaten finalists Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at the Allianz Arena.
These teams are having contrasting fortunes in their respective domestic leagues but that will be thrown out of the window when these two teams draw the battle lines eight months after the finals.

Bayern’s all-conquering season saw them sweeping and winning everything in front of them last season including the coveted Champions League crown with Kingsley Coman’s goal against his former club enough to see the Bavarians crowned champions for the 2019-20 season. They proceeded to bag more silverware in the World Club Championships and the German Supercup to cap up their truly historic season.
This season has not been all smooth sailing for Bayern. They have nevertheless navigated through the challenges well and are on course for a ninth successive Bundesliga title after a 1-0 victory over the closest challengers RB Leipzig at the weekend, without their injured talisman Lewandowski, a win that saw them moving 7 points clear at the top with the finish line in touching distance.
They have won all but one of their Champions League matches this season. That exception being the 1-1 draw with Atletico in December, when they fielded a largely second-string squad having already topped the group.
PSG’s clinical 4-1 win in Barcelona underlined their intentions to make amends for last year’s failing effort. Kylian Mbappe ran circles around Camp Nou with his pace and finishing proving a bit too much for the Catalan giants. Although they couldn’t quite replay this performance on the return leg on home soil, a 1-1 draw was enough to see them through.
Domestically, the French giants are getting perhaps their toughest challenge yet this season. Pochettino’s side had only just regained the top spot but a 1-0 home loss to Lille at the weekend means they have dislodged from the top by Lille who now hold a three-point cushion at the summit.
Although a fourth consecutive Ligue 1 title would be welcome, it is the world’s worst kept secret that a first-ever Champions League triumph is the ultimate dream for Les Parisiens.
Possible Line Ups
|Injured: Lewandowski (Knee), Hoffmann (Meniscus), Tolisso (Tendon), Costa (ankle), Tillman (ACL) and Verratti (COVID-19), Kurzawa (Calf), Pereira (Calf), Letellier (Thigh), Icardi (Thigh), Bernat (ACL)|
BAYERN MUNICH VS PSG BETTING PREDICTIONS
This is a draw neither team wanted after the tough final they played just eight months ago. They will however relish the challenge here. With both sides nursing injuries to key personnel, this should be a pretty even encounter. By now, they pretty much know each other’s strengths and weaknesses. We expect a rather cagey opening here with both sides keen to hold their ground. We are therefore going for Under 1.5 first-half goals @ 1.55 as our opening betting tip here.
Despite the absence of Lewandowski, Bayern have a wealth of attacking options upfront. They have been particularly lethal at the Allianz Arena where they have scored an incredible fifty goals in thirteen matches in their backyard. They will look to establish the advantage in this first leg and will likely dominate the proceedings here. For our last tip, we are backing the Bavarians to score the first opening goal of the game @ 1.63.
