Match previewThe city of romance plays host to a must-see clash in the Champions League on Valentine's Day but it is fair to say there is no love lost between juggernauts Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.
Messi has looked rejuvenated since returning from his World Cup triumph with Argentina. PSG are also a different beast on home soil, having gone 40 matches unbeaten at the Parc des Princes in 90 minutes, while they have also won six of their last seven home games in the Champions League, beating the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid and Juventus in that run. This PSG side are less erratic than in years gone by with more stability in midfield and arguably the best attacking combination in the Champions League, while Bayern Munich have been far from perfect since returning from their winter break in the Bundesliga, so the hosts are worth a draw-no-bet selection. Key statPSG are unbeaten in their last 40 competitive matches on home soil.

As for Bayern, they hold just a one-point lead over red-hot Union Berlin in the Bundesliga title race, but they head to Paris on the back of two straight league matches.

Bayern Munich v PSG live stream: how to watch the
Mbappe, Messi, and Verratti take part in PSG training ahead of Champions League clash vs Bayern MunichWell this was shockingly predictable. After a week of reports that Paris Saint-Germain would be reduced to a skeleton crew in the upcoming Champions League game versus Bayern Munich it looks like their key players will feature after all. Leo Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Marco Verratti all completed some form of training on Sunday, and according to Le Parisien will definitely make the game against Bayern on Tuesday. Of course, making the matchday squad doesn’t necessarily mean that they will start. However, given that Mbappe was supposed to be confirmed out and has already resumed partial team training, we can only assume the others will make it as well. Meanwhile at Bayern, there are fears that Thomas Muller could miss the game due to a calf issue that caused him to get subbed off against Bochum as early as half time.
These European heavyweights locked horns in the Champions League final only three years ago, having also met in the tournament's quarter-finals of the 2020-21 season, and they could hardly have asked for a tougher opening knockout contest. Bayern Munich will feel especially hard done by, having been the only team to win all six of their Champions League group games earlier this season, comfortably topping a section which featured Inter Milan, Barcelona and Viktoria Plzen. They plundered 18 goals in that group-stage campaign and head into the first leg of their last-16 tussle unbeaten in 19 matches in all competitions, so it is no surprise to see a number of bookmakers pricing Bayern Munich up as marginal favourites at the Parc des Princes.
PSG's preparations for this knockout contest, meanwhile, have not gone to plan with Christophe Galtier's men first slipping to a 2-1 defeat to Marseille in the French Cup before losing 3-1 to Monaco in Ligue 1 on Saturday. In fairness to the capital club, though, Galtier opted to ring the changes for the Monaco contest with a handful of key players missing and Achraf Hakimi and Sergio Ramos having been rested with one eye on this Champions League contest. And the big news for PSG heading into their clash with Bayern Munich is that both Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe have shaken off injuries and are set to play a part in this first leg. The pair have scored a combined 11 goals in the Champions League this season and their importance should not be underestimated.
It would be a classic Bayern moment if, after weeks of having the apparent advantage due to injuries, the situation were to get turned on its head less than 72 hours before kickoff. Such is the luck of the Champions League. Even so, Julian Nagelsmann will be expected to find a way to win. Bayern’s saving grace is that they come into the game in MUCH better form than the Parisians, and they’ll want to leverage that into a first leg win. We’ll have to see if the team can pull it off. Interested in a proper, in-depth look at the game? How should Bayern Munich line up, what tactics should the team use, and what kind of impact will this game have on the future of Julian Nagelsmann? We have all that and more in the latest episode of our podcast.
