PSG-Bayern Munich a few seconds ago

At Bayern Munich it is striking that Leon Goretzka starts on the bench against Paris Saint-Germain.

The German international is normally a fixture in trainer Hans-Dieter Flick's team, but tonight he has to hand over his place to David Alaba.

Kylian Mbappé shows a cautious smile at the Parc des Princes in Paris, so Bayern Munich can probably get his chest wet.

Is the star of the first leg in Munich (two goals) going to put on a show in the Champions League?

Only four times did a team make up for a home defeat.


The statistics do not really indicate a comeback from Bayern Munich tonight in the return against Paris Saint-Germain.

Only four times before, a team that lost the home game in hostile territory managed to reach the next round.



  • Ajax-Panathinaikos 0-1, 3-0 (1995/96, semi-finals)

  • Inter-Bayern Munich 0-1, 3-2 (2010/11, knockout stage)

  • Ajax-Real Madrid 1-2, 4-1 (2018/19, knockout stage)

  • Tottenham-Ajax 0-1, 3-2 (2018/19, semi-finals)

  • Chelsea-FC Porto · a few seconds ago

    Chelsea is already with one leg in the semi-finals of the Champions League thanks to the 2-0 win over FC Porto in the first leg in Seville, where this diptych is played due to the travel restrictions between the United Kingdom and Portugal.

    So it can hardly go wrong for the Londoners, or can FC Porto do a stunt?

    Hakim Ziyech cannot do anything about that for the time being.

    The former Ajax player starts again on the bench.



    Chelsea line-up: 

    Eduard Mendy;

    Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Rüdiger;

    James, Kanté, Jorginho, Chilwell;

    PSG-Bayern Munich a few seconds ago

    In this live blog, of course, most of the attention goes to the return between Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich, a repeat of last year's Champions League final.

    Bayern surprisingly lost the first leg in their own Munich with 2-3 and must therefore win to prevent premature elimination in the ball of millions as the defending champion.

    PSG is on a roll, but has collapsed under high voltage before.

    Are the Parisians holding out now?

    These are the setups.



    PSG line-up: 

    Keylor Navas;

    Dagba, Danilo, Kimpembe, Diallo;

    Gueye, Paredes;

    Di María, Neymar, Draxler;

    Mbappé.



    Bayern Munich line-up: 

    Neuer;

    Pavard, Boateng, Lucas Hernández, Davies;

    Kimmich, Alaba;

    Sané, Müller, Coman;

    Choupo-Moting.
