PSG vs Bayern – Betting Preview
Tuesday’s Champions League match between Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich at Parc des Princes will pit the nations’ respective champions from France and Germany against one another.
In contrast to the Bavarians, who hope to win the Champions League trophy for a record-breaking seventh time, PSG is hopeful that 2023 will mark the end of their protracted Champions League trophy drought.
Having won 12 and drawn three of their 15 home games this season, PSG will undoubtedly be confident that they can take a lead to Germany.
The hosts have also won six of their previous home Champions League matches at Parc des Princes, defeating teams like Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Juventus during that time.
They have only lost one of their five home games against Bayern in the competition, a 1-0 defeat in the most recent meeting between the two teams in April 2021.
Bayern Munich Preview
Bayern breezed through a challenging group that featured Barcelona and Inter Milan to advance to the knockout stages without dropping a single point.
They now have the opportunity to win their first seven games of a Champions League campaign for the second time, having already accomplished this feat in the 2019–20 season.
The defending champions from Germany often do well in this stage of the competition, having advanced from the last-16 in nine of the previous ten seasons, including their most recent three European campaigns.
Bayern Munich are currently at the top of the Bundesliga standings but have been plagued by inconsistency since the World Cup last year. The Bavarian giants eased past VfL Bochum by a 3-0 scoreline in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this week.
1×2 Betting Odds
PSG cannot afford to perform poorly this week because they have so far played it safe this season. Due to a hamstring injury, Lionel Messi missed the match against AS Monaco and is questionable for this match.
Their odds of winning this first leg at home, stands @ 2.70.
Bayern Munich has a strong team at their disposal, but since the new year, they have been shockingly unsuccessful.
However, Bayern Munich has the superior team going into this game despite the fact that Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi are both having fitness issues.
But Nagelsmann thinks that both of them will play. Calling this a mind game tactic from PSG.
Bayern to win here and take the advantage to Allianz, stands @ 2.67.
The chances of a stalemate between the two giants, stands @ 3.92.
Total goals over/under
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.56.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.61.
Paris Saint-Germain scores 2.65 goals when playing at home and Bayern Munich scores 2.88 goals when playing away.
While that is just the reflection of the attacking powers that both these sides have, which needs no introduction.
Expect a high scoring match under the Eiffel Tower.
