Bayern Munich are back in action in the UEFA Champions League this week as they take on French giants Paris Saint-Germain in a quarterfinal fixture at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday. Both teams have had their problems this season and need a victory in this fixture.
Bayern Munich have effectively recovered from a slow start to their season and are beginning to hit their peak this month. With Robert Lewandowski injured, however, the likes of Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller will have to do much of the heavy lifting for the Bavarians in this match.
Paris Saint-Germain have been well below their best in Ligue 1 and will need to take it up a notch in the UEFA Champions League. The French giants have plenty of talent in their ranks and will want to make the most of their counter-attacking prowess in this fixture.
