Champions League holders Bayern Munich trail Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 ahead of the second and decisive leg in the French capital.

Paris Saint-Germain v Bayern Munich Predictions and Preview
Hansi Flick cut a frustrate figure at full-time after seeing his side miss a hatful of chances. Lewandowski has contributed an astonishing 42 goals and seven assists from just 33 appearances but his team-mates will have to find a way of getting the job done without him as the Pole is expected to be out for at least another two weeks.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting deputised in the first encounter and to the versatile Cameroonian’s credit, he did find the back of the net against his old employers. The former Stoke City ace is 6/4 to bag anytime and will be flanked by Kingsley Coman and Leroy Sane with Serge Gnabry in reserve.

|Paris Saint-Germain to win 3-1||25/1||Offer|
Coman was the hero in last year’s final and is 7/1 to break the deadlock. Fellow flying winger Sane can be found at 11/2 and the duo will switch flanks with regularity to unsettle Alessandro Florenzi and Abdou Diallo. Bayern are 9/4 to qualify outright.
Ligue 1 heavyweights PSG had a future Ballon d’Or winner to thank for swaying the tie in their favour. Mbappe is set to battle it out with Erling Haaland, much like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi did before them, for the honour of world’s best player over the next decade and the Paris native is desperate to add the one trophy that has so far eluded him.
The forward is 4/1 to open proceedings and Neymar can be found at 5/1. The former Barcelona idol has been plagued by injury for the majority of the term but has handed Mauricio Pochettino a boost and is the man for the big occasion.
Moise Kean will feature after the break and has probably exceeded expectations after arriving on loan from Everton. The ex-Juventus youngster is 6/1 to register last and PSG are 1/3 to reach the last four and set up a mouthwatering showdown with Manchester City.
One to watch for Paris Saint-Germain: Angel Di Maria is much more than just a provider and has reached double figures in each of his five previous campaigns in France. The left footer is 11/5 to strike anytime.
One to watch for Bayern Munich: Gnabry is a wide man by trade but can operate through the middle if Flick wants a more fluid and mobile front three. The German is 6/1 to hit the last effort.
Long shot: Bayern Munich need to put in a champions performance if they are to advance in this season’s competition and the Bavarians will be quietly confident they can turn it around. PSG are known to buckle when the pressure is on in Europe and a 2-0 away success is 14/1.
