Bayern Munich welcome Paris Saint-Germain to the Allianz Arena this evening in the first leg of the teams’ Champions League quarter-final tie.

Tonight’s game – between the German champions and French champions – is a rematch of last season’s final, from which Bayern emerged 1-0 winners for their first title in the competition since 2013. The trophy has long eluded PSG despite their domestic dominance, but they will have been buoyed by their last-16 triumph over Barcelona this term, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men securing a 5-2 aggregate victory that began with a stunning 4-1 first-leg win. Bayern, meanwhile, were 6-2 victors on aggregate against Lazio, and are unbeaten in their last 16 outings.

The Bundesliga outfit enter tonight’s fixture on the back of a crucial 1-0 league win against second-placed RB Leipzig, whereas PSG suffered a 1-0 Ligue 1 defeat by Lille, with both sides reduced to 10 men in the final moments of that game – though Neymar’s red card will not affect his involvement here. In contrast, Bayern’s star man Robert Lewandowski will miss out due to injury, with both teams set to be without numerous players on account of a mixture of fitness issues and Covid-19 infections.

Full-time: Bayern Munich 2-3 PSG

Bayern Munich were excellent for large parts of that game but PSG were just too clinical. Kylian Mbappe was the difference in the end. In a match packed full of quality and incident, it was his second goal just after the hour that was the standout moment. After scoring three goals at the Nou Camp in previous round, he now adds a brace at the home of the European champions to his collection.

85’: It seems a bit early to be taking the ball into the corner flag, but that’s what PSG are doing through Moise Kean. Draxler then gets a sight at goal but hits it over the bar from the edge of the box.
