Bayern Munich vs PSG 06/12/2017
Bayern will be out for revenge after losing the first meeting in Paris, a shambolic 3-0 defeat. It also proved to be the final nail in Carlo Ancelotti’s coffin.
Cue Jupp Heynckes, and the Bavarians have regained the form that made them such a fearsome unit in Europe.
PSG have won all five games in this season’s competition, and they enjoy a three-point cushion over the German club. Paris also lead on overall goal difference so Bayern must win by a four-goal margin to finish top. But there’s doubt surrounding the Parisians after a shock 2-1 defeat at Strasbourg over the weekend. It was their first reverse of the season!
Home factor will play a huge role. Both teams have met in seven previous matches – all in the UEFA Champions League group stage – and all but one of those contests were won by the home side.
This is the German club’s first home meeting with French opposition since a 6-1 thumping of Lille in 2012. That gave Bayern the record of W10 D2 L3 at home to Ligue 1 opposition.
