Bayern Munich vs PSG
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 7 April 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
Allianz Arena will witness a repeat of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League final as the six-time European champions Bayern Munich attempt to defeat PSG, who are desperate to progress as they continue hunting their maiden Champions League title.
Bayern Munich is the favorite to win with their squad strength and overall form in CL. The 2-1 win over Lazio in their last UCL game not only gave the German champions their 150th UCL victory but also extended their unbeaten run in this tournament to the 19th fixture in a row.
PSG will aim to make history under Pochettino as they have defeated Barcelona to reach the quarterfinals in the Champions League this season. The guest’s record of progressing in only two of six previous UCL quarter-final clashes won’t help their confidence.
The absence of Bayern’s star striker Lewandowski will certainly put a weight on the home team’s attack in the middle. The away team will look to take advantage of this condition in the upcoming clash, and Mbappe’s speed will heap on the misery for the Bavarians trying to defend the CL title.

- The host has lost none of their last four clashes at home since 1997.
Bayern Munich vs PSG Prediction
Expect a tight game at Allianz Arena as both teams are in a tough spot in the tournament. Bayern Munich will not risk playing upfield without Lewandowski. The Polish forward brought in most of the goals for Hansi Flick this term in any major competitions. His absence will certainly affect the scoreline in the match and will probably be a low-scoring affair in ninety minutes.
Besides, the Bavarians have shorthand only at the finishing department and not in their defensive line. Another reason to back the low scoreline is that PSG is visiting, and they have scored only a goal each in their recent two visits to this venue. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
The host enjoys the ground advantage in the clash and is likely to win the first leg of the quarterfinals on Wednesday this season. The Bavarians have lost none of their last four h2h meetings with the French side at this venue. PSG will also try to be more defensive unless they are given open space like Barcelona in their last CL round. Hence, the draw no bet over Bayern Munich will probably be an ideal choice for the punters.
