PSG welcomes Bayern Munich this Tuesday, as part of the knockout stages of the Champions League. Here are the probable compositions.
The dreaded and expected duel is looming more and more clearly since on Tuesday evening (9:00 p.m.), Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich will face each other at the Parc des Princes for the knockout stages of the Ligue des champions. Excitement therefore, but above all concern on the side of Paris Saint-Germain since the overall state of the troop of Christophe Galtier does not encourage optimism. Since the beginning of January, there has been a series of tasteless performances and defeats have flourished in a very unusual way (4 in 10 games, all competitions combined). Opposite, Bayern Munich have regained their colors and seem ready for their European trip. But with which players?

On the PSG side, the news of Kylian Mbappé’s return to training has given the fans a very slight smile, but the striker will most likely not start against the Bavarians. Christophe Galtier should propose a 3-4-1-2 type system. Lionel Messi (if he is fully recovered from his thigh discomfort) and Neymar in front, with Vitinha in support. Behind, Achraf Hakimi and Nuno Mendes on the wings in an advanced position, and the Verratti-Ruiz duo recovering. In defense, Marquinhos could be accompanied by Danilo Pereira and Sergio Ramos. Presnel Kimpembe, who played a few minutes again on Saturday against Monaco after more than two months of absence, should be too fair to start. In the cage finally, no surprise with Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Nagelsmann remains secret
Regarding Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann leaves the greatest vagueness over the organization of his eleven. According The Team, the German coach could opt for a 4-2-3-1. Yann Sommer as goalkeeper. Joao Cancelo, Dayot Upamecano, Matthijs de Ligt and Alphonso Davies in defense. On recovery, the Kimmish-Musiala duo and ahead of them, Thomas Müller, Leroy Sané and Kingsley Coman. Alone at the forefront, the former PSG Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting. The possibility of instead seeing a 3-1-4-2 cannot be ruled out. In this case, Benjamin Pavard and Serge Gnabry would enter the composition, as was the case this weekend during the 3-0 success against Bochum.
