Reasons Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich tip
The French and the German champions are going to meet in the main event of the day. Paris Saint-Germain is hosting Bayern Munich in the derby of this round of Champions League. The hosts would like to make a statement with winning against one of the most successful clubs in European history. On the other hand, the Germans are not very good recently, and it seems that something is not right at Allianz Arena.
Paris Saint-Germain preview
We did mention that something is wrong with Bayern Munich but to be honest the French champions have their problems too. Neymar and Edinson Cavani got on the wrong foot, and we are going to see the consequences of this situation. The Saints played only a draw away from home against Montpellier 0-0. This was the first game since the start of the season in which they haven’t scored. On the other hand, it was the 9th straight in which they haven’t lost and the 6th during that streak with clean sheets. High-efficiency is a default when PSG appears on the pitch, and 5 of the recent 7 matches went above 2.5 goals. Angel Di Maria will be available for this event, but the situation with Neymar is still unclear. This could affect the game enormously.
Bayern Munich preview
As the climax of recent unstable performances, Bayern Munich played only 2-2 against Wolfsburg this Friday. When looking the game objectively, we have to say that they didn’t deserve even that single point. It seems that the problems with Carlo Ancelotti and the rest of the team are affecting the overall atmosphere. After three victories in which they haven’t conceded, this game is a huge disappointment for all the fans and the players. Bayern Munich lost only once this season, and that happened against Hoffenheim two weeks ago, but it was evident that their performances are not at highest possible level. However Bayer is very efficient, and 8 of prior 10 games, ended with over 2.5 goals. The Germans scored at least twice in 9 matches during that span, and Robert Lewandowski already reached 11 goals this season. David Alaba and Thiago Alcantara will have a game-time decision regarding their appearance.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich head to head
Although they are in the elite of European football in the recent years, these two sides only met twice, and that happened all the way back in 2001. Bayern Munich was victorious in Germany with 2-0, and the Saints won the match in Paris 1-0.
Carlo Ancelotti has four victories and one loss against Unai Emery so far.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich prediction and betting tip
We are not going to predict the winner of the match, and instead, we are going to focus on goals. Over would be our 2.5 first choice. It would take a miracle not to see many goals at Parc des Princes.
With the recent struggling in defense and especially without Manuel Neuer, Bayern is looking very pale in the back line. Meanwhile, the hosts are not so bright either.
So we would suggest one long shot. Both teams to score in the second half.
