Bayern Munich hosts Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. The match will be played on Wednesday, April 7th at Allianz Arena (Munich)
A few steps before the final of the tournament, the draw gave football fans a top-class confrontation. Bayern Munich are the reigning Champions League Cup holders and one of the favorites for a victory in the current Champions League. For the second year in a row, the team is in excellent shape. When the Munich team was headed by Hans-Dieter Flick, the Reds reached a new level and won all possible trophies. In the previous stage of the Champions League knockout rounds, the Germans beat Lazio twice without any problems. However, it won't be so easy in the upcoming meeting. Firstly, the opponent is much stronger. Secondly, the injured players will not help the Bavarians, namely, Lewandowski, Tolisso, and Costa.

PSG reached the Champions League final in the previous season. However, the Parisians minimally lost to Bayern in the decisive battle (0-1). Then Paris Saint-Germain was headed by Thomas Tuchel, who now works at Chelsea. Recently, the bosses have appointed Mauricio Pochettino to manage the team. But today it is difficult to call the Parisians a stable team. They make too many mistakes. At the previous stage of the Champions League knockout rounds, the Red-Blues dealt with Barcelona, scoring four goals in the first match at Camp Nou. Pochettino also has lineup problems before the quarterfinals. Paredes is disqualified, Bernat and Verratti are injured, and Pereira, Florenzi, Kurzawa, and Icardi are questionable.
Bayern looks stable and loses very rarely, especially when it comes to the important stage of the tournament. Football players are always focused and determined only to win. The same cannot be said for Paris Saint-Germain. The French are poorly motivated, and the main stars are too relaxed. Due to the lack of the proper mood, the Parisians lost to Nantes and Lille in the French championship. On the other hand, over the weekend, the Bavarians beat their direct competitor for the gold medals, RB Leipzig. Beyond that, Bayern won three last head-to-head matches against PSG. Last year's Champions League final showed that Bayern are better in combination football, while discipline and ball control give the Germans an advantage. We think that they will gain a confident home victory.
Prediction for the match: Bayern Munich to win
