Champions League: PSG vs Bayern




One week ago, the champion's house fell in the den. It was a fascinating encounter at the Allianz Arena, but the results did not really tell the exact situation.






The team that lost to Bayern is the one who created the better stance. The European champions hold the ball 63.6% and hit 31 shots. Only 2 goals are still very modest compared to the opportunities they create.

Damage for Bayern is owner Robert Lewandowski to make the audience due to injury. The Polish player was forced to watch the shining Kylian Mbappe and Neymar bring back important goals for PSG and the replacement for Choupo-Moting, despite scoring 1 goal, wasted many favorable opportunities. 

That day, Bayern's defense, including goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, also made mistakes to blame. They proved helpless before Mbappe's agility, which they themselves dissolved well when overcoming PSG 1-0 in the Champions League final last season.

For many people, PSG paid off the debt and had a great advantage in the semifinals. However, coach Mauricio Pochettino told his students to be cautious. Indeed, Bayern is a team with real power and is still the defending European champions. 

As for PSG, in the context that the French government has not yet allowed the audience to watch football live on the field, the "Prince's Park" mecca is no longer their big fulcrum. Les Parisiens only won 1 of the last 5 matches here in all competitions (losing 3).

Human resource difficulties also come to PSG at this time when some defensive pillars such as Marquinhos, Juan Bernat, and Kurzawa are all injured and are likely to miss the return leg with Bayern. As for the left-back position, young talent Abdou Diallo will again fill the place reluctantly because there is no more possible option.

PSG has yet to lose a single match against German teams at home in the Champions League . But if this happened before the giant Bayern, it wouldn't be so seismic. 

Before losing to PSG in the first leg, Bayern were unbeaten for 17 consecutive Champions League matches. Reunited in France, "Gray Lobster" promises to make PSG face many difficulties. It should be remembered that the Bundesliga representative has a series of 20 games without losing on away field in European cups. 

Last weekend, Bayern were held 1-1 by Union Berlin at home. But it was a match that coach Flick put up almost half of the main squad to prepare for PSG's reunion.
