    Bayern make light work of group

    Nagelsmann's side had a tricky group which included Barcelona and Inter Milan.

    They progressed to the knockout rounds without dropping a single point.

    They now have the chance of winning their first seven games of a Champions League campaign for the second time, having done so in the 2019/20 campaign.

    Clash of the European giants

    With both sides often dominating their own domestic leagues, the Champions League takes more importance.

    While Bayern have won the trophy six times, it has still eluded PSG.

    They have experienced winners with the likes of Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos, hoping they can dispose of Nagelsmann's side en-route to the quarter final.

    Die Bayern looking to make impression

    Bayern Munich, having won the 2019/20 Champions League at the expense of PSG, will be looking to challenge for major honours once again this season.

    European competition has been somewhat of a let down since that title, pressure is on Nagelsmann to deliver major honours.

    Disposing of the French champions in the round of 16 will certainly make a statement about their credentials this campaign.

    French hitting dip of form

    PSG were knocked out of the Coupe de France by Marseille and were looking to get back to winning ways as they travelled to face Monaco in Ligue 1 on the weekend.

    It did not pan out as planned as Galtier’s team fell to a dismal 3-1 defeat, with all four goals coming in the first half.

    While they still boast a five-point lead at the top of the table, losing two games on the spin is not an ideal way to prepare for the arrival of the German champions.

    Saudi owners focussed on prize

    The Champions League is the one trophy that has eluded PSG and the pressure will be on Christophe Galtier to challenge for the trophy this season.

    Mauricio Pochettino paid the price for not reaching the promised land as manager when he was relieved of his duties by the owners.

    The Saudi owners of PSG have targeted major honours and pressure is on the side to do so.

    Welcome to PSG vs Bayern

    PSG welcome Bayern to the Parc des Princes this evening as the champions of France and Germany go head to head in the Champions League round of 16.

    Despite missing their league game on the weekend, Lionel Messi is expected to be fit to face Bayern this evening, and he could be joined by Marco Verratti who is set to return from injury.

    The French side have been missing talisman Kylian Mbappe for the last three games due to a thigh injury, but having returned to training, he is expected to feature on the bench tonight.

    Renato Sanches and Nordi Mukiele are ruled out for Christophe Galtier’s side, but they will be hoping that Fabian Ruiz can recover from a virus to make the starting lineup, after missing the game against Monaco on the weekend.

    Galtier has one eye on tonight’s game with his team selection at the weekend with Achraf Hakimi, Nuno Mendes and Sergio Ramos all rested, but the trio are expected to join Marquinhos in the back-four against Bayern.

    As for the visitors, with Manuel Neuer out for the rest of the season, Yann Sommer will continue to deputise in between the sticks.

    Sommer will be hoping to mark his Champions League debut for the Germans with a clean sheet.

    Ryan Gravenberch, Noussair Mazraoui, Lucus Hernandez and Sadio Mane all remain sidelined.

    Joshua Kimmich is due to return from suspension to partner Leon Goretzka in the centre of midfield.

    Thomas Muller was forced at half time on the weekend due a calf issue, Nagelsmann may decide not to take any risks with the veteran striker and leave him on the bench.
