Paris Saint-Germain must come from behind to progress in the Champions League after Bayern Munich took a first leg lead.
A 1-0 win away from home leaves Julian Nagelsmann’s side in a strong position ahead of hosting the Ligue 1 leaders in Munich.
Bayern have been further boosted by the news of Neymar’s season-ending ankle surgery, though will be all too aware of the threat that their visitors still possess.
Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi will look to get at a Bayern defence that will be missing Benjamin Pavard, who is suspended.
Here’s everything you need to know.

Bayern Munich will be without Benjamin Pavard, who is suspended, with Josip Stanisic in line to deputise on the right of Julian Nagelsmann’s defensive three. Noussair Mazraoui recently took a break from football due to a heart issue and may not yet be ready to return, while Manuel Neuer and Lucas Hernandez are long-term absentees.
News of Neymar’s injury comes as a blow to Paris Saint-Germain, with the Brazilian forward out for the rest of the season. In his absence, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe may be employed as a front two and supported by a strengthened midfield. Achraf Hakimi has been named in Christophe Galtier’s travelling squad despite being under investigation by French police for an alleged rape.
