Are you ready for the exciting game between Bayern and PSG? I can’t wait to see who comes out on top in this highly anticipated match, which is set to take place on Wednesday, March 8th, 2023, at 3 p.m. ET or 12 p.m. PT.
Now, let’s dive into the details of this match. Bayern is looking to record their 16th win in their last 18 top-tier European games at the Allianz Arena. They have already won the Champions League trophy against PSG in 2020 thanks to a Coman goal, and they have defeated PSG by the same scoreline in three of their last four meetings. Additionally, Bayern has topped Group C with six wins out of six games and is leading the Bundesliga standings with only two losses so far.
However, PSG is not going to give up without a fight. They are hoping to see the best Kylian Mbappé, who became the club’s top-scorer ever in their last game. While they have been eliminated four times in seven campaigns, they are commanding the Ligue 1 table with 63 points, eight points clear of the second-placed Olympique Marseille. But PSG needs Messi and Mbappé to stand a chance of progressing.
Let’s talk about the team news. Bayern’s Neuer and Hernandez are still out, but Sane could be available. On the other hand, PSG’s Neymar and Kimpembe are out long-term, but Hakimi should be available despite rape charges. Renato Sanches is likely to miss out, and Marquinhos won’t be fully fit. Benjamin Pavard is also suspended for the game.
In terms of the prediction, PSG has rediscovered their scoring touch since the first leg loss. Bayern remains vulnerable at the back despite a decent scoring record. PSG only needs to win by a goal to take it beyond 90 minutes. A two-goal winning margin for PSG is possible, but a clean sheet for visitors is unlikely. Expect Mbappé and Messi to feature prominently.
Based on all of this information, my pick for the game is Bayern 1, PSG 3 (after extra time). However, it’s important to remember that anything can happen on the day of the game, and both teams are highly skilled and motivated to win. Mbappé and Messi’s performance will be key to PSG’s chances of winning the trophy, while Bayern Munich is in good form and has a solid team under Julian Nagelsmann. Yann Sommer, Dayot Upamecano, and Matthijs de Ligt need to perform well to support the team’s success.
I can’t wait to see how this game unfolds and which team comes out on top. Let’s get ready to cheer on our favorite teams and enjoy the excitement of the game!
