After what happened in the Champions League final last year, once again PSG and Bayern Munich faces each other. PSG are probably licking their lips right now. Bayern Munich will be without Robert Lewandowski. While Neymar and Mbappe are both fit and ready to terrorize the Bavarians’ hapless back line.

Hopefully, former PSG players like Kingsley Coman and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting are up to the task. Because the ex-effect will be needed. Meanwhile, Hansi Flick needs to show that he’s ready for whatever Mauricio Pochettino has planned, whether that be an all-out-offensive or a more conservative approach.
This could end up being one of the hardest quarter final games Bayern Munich have played in a long time.

Ahead of the upcoming Bayern Munich vs. Paris Saint-Germain Champions League clash, Kylian Mbappe spoke to RTL about how this year will be different and why PSG will not get caught looking ahead to a rematch with the Bavarians.
Speaking in an interview with RTL (as captured by @iMiaSanMia), the 22-year-old France international noted that this year’s version of the Bayern-PSG showdown will be different as it will be played over two legs.

“Losing the final last year hurt. We’re playing against them again but it’s a different context. We’ve learned a lot since that final,” Mbappe said. “They’re a great team. We’re playing the first game away. We will give our best to try to go through.”
“Before (the Bayern Munich match) there is an important league match (vs Lille), which is another major objective,” said Mbappe. “And we will do a real stock take at the end of the season.” For Official Football Highlights, Soccer Live Score and Latest Transfer News download Footylight app.
Surely, another major difference that Mbappe did not cover between this season and last season is that Robert Lewandowski is expected to be on the shelf for both matches.

One of the biggest football stars in current world like Robert Lewandowski, misses out both legs of the quarter-final, it may also create opportunity for others to snatch the light. Bayern Munich will eye some of their players to fill out the gap of Lewandowski. The responsibility may go to Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, ex PSG player to shine. They will also want Sane and Gnabry to perform up to their class. On the other hand, it may be a great opportunity for Kylian Mbappe to star once again in this competition. As, he has scored an astonishing hat-trick against Barcelona at the Camp-Nou. It could be another opportunity for Neymar to prove his worth. He would be more than exciting to face against Bayern as he misses clash against his former club Barcelona.
