The first match, which was held last week, ended with the Parisians winning 3-2, in the first round at Allianz Munich.
Bayern Munich needs a near miracle on Parisian soil to grab the candidacy card, especially since the team needs to score at least two goals to cross on condition that no goals are received.
During the following lines, we review the features of the Bavarians ’difficulty in overcoming the Parisian obstacle, given the result of going with the current conditions of the team and the strength of the competitor:
Paris..the eternal knot of the Bavarians
Looking at the history of Bayern Munich against Paris Saint-Germain on the land of Paris, it is clear to us that the Bavarians did not win or draw at all in the City of Light during the previous confrontations against the owners of the land, where they were defeated in all 4 matches.
The first confrontation between the two teams in Paris dates back to September 14, 1994, in the group stage of the European Champions League for the 1994/1995 season, and the landlords won two goals without a response.
Before they met again in the group stage also on the land of Paris on November 5, 1997, in the 1997/1998 season, and the match ended with the Parisians winning again with three goals for a goal.
The two teams played again on Paris soil in the group stage of the 2000/2001 season, and the Parisians won 1-0, and the match was on September 26, 2000.
The fourth match between the two teams in Paris was in the group stage for the 2017/2018 season, and the meeting ended with the Parisians winning 3 goals without a response, and the match took place on September 17, 2017.

The enormous power of the Parisians
Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmis expressed his great confidence in the ability of the Bavarians to turn the tables in Paris, and stressed that they were the best team in the first leg, but the result did not smile at them in the end.
Certainly, Flick and his men will experience today’s meeting with much confidence that the European champions derive from the logo printed on their shirts. The impossible is not Germany, as the pages of history have taught us, but certainly the task is very difficult.
The champions of the final version of the Champions League need to score at least two goals to pass to the next round, provided no goals are received, and in the event that Neuer is shaken, the team will need more goals against Navas, which is very difficult.
With doubts surrounding the participation of the expert Brazilian defender Marquinhos, which will definitely affect the efficiency of the back-line of the Parisians, this does not prevent us from indicating that the front line is living its best period under the brilliance of Mbappe and Neymar.
Given the numbers of Paris Saint-Germain this season in the Champions League, we find that the team has played 9 matches since the group stage, won six of them, and lost two games, including defeat by Manchester United at the beginning of the group stage with two goals to one goal on the land of Paris.
Paris players scored 21 goals in the nine games, meaning that their goal rate is 2.34 goals in each match, and the team has received only 10 goals in the nine matches, which means that their rate of goal receiving is slightly more than the goal each match.
Absence of the attack commander
Robert Lewandowski will not participate in today’s confrontation against the Parisians, and Flick will not be able to count on him despite his return to training, which is a sign that his return to the stadiums is imminent.
Flick will have to continue relying on Chubu Moting in the position of the outspoken striker, and Moting has scored only 6 goals in 27 matches he played in all competitions this season with the Bavarian Grand Prix.
The Bavarian attack will be affected, but that certainly does not prevent us from pointing out the variety of attacking solutions at Flick, whether thanks to the speed of the flankers, or thanks to the offensive support provided by the midfielders.
