Bayern Munich welcome Paris Saint-Germain to the Allianz Arena this evening in the first leg of the teams’ Champions League quarter-final tie.

Tonight’s game – between the German champions and French champions – is a rematch of last season’s final, from which Bayern emerged 1-0 winners for their first title in the competition since 2013. The trophy has long eluded PSG despite their domestic dominance, but they will have been buoyed by their last-16 triumph over Barcelona this term, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men securing a 5-2 aggregate victory that began with a stunning 4-1 first-leg win. Bayern, meanwhile, were 6-2 victors on aggregate against Lazio, and are unbeaten in their last 16 outings.

The Bundesliga outfit enter tonight’s fixture on the back of a crucial 1-0 league win against second-placed RB Leipzig, whereas PSG suffered a 1-0 Ligue 1 defeat by Lille, with both sides reduced to 10 men in the final moments of that game – though Neymar’s red card will not affect his involvement here. In contrast, Bayern’s star man Robert Lewandowski will miss out due to injury, with both teams set to be without numerous players on account of a mixture of fitness issues and Covid-19 infections. Follow live updates of Bayern Munich vs Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League quarter-finals below.

Half-time: Bayern Munich 1-2 PSG

After that Choupo-Moting goal, the momentum seems to be with Bayern. But trailing PSG is such a dangerous game and the Parisians showed in that first half how clinical they can be. Will Bayern continue to be this bold and aggressive with their defensive line and overall play in the second half? We’re about to find out.

Half-time: Bayern Munich 1-2 PSG

Where to start with that one? It’s been enthralling, breathless, and wildly unpredictable. PSG took the lead inside two minutes through Mbappe, thanks to Neuer’s mistake, and for a spell, the visitors looked like scoring every time they went forward. Shambolic defending resulted in Marquinhos doubling PSG’s lead, but the game seemed to swing when the PSG captain went off with an injury. Bayern, despite their defensive struggles, had been piling on the pressure and with Marquinhos out of the picture, Choupo-Moting headed in Pavard’s cross to pull one back.

44’: Kimmich’s delivery from set pieces has been outstanding so far. He swings in another dangerous free kick and it’s well dealt with by Danilo at the back post, who turns it behind.

40’: At the other end, Neuer plays a sloppy pass straight to Di Maria in PSG’s midfield, but the Argentinian can’t get it under control and is crowded out before he’s able to shoot at goal.

GOAL! Bayern Munich 1-2 PSG (CHOUPO-MOTING 37’)

Bayern are back in it, and it’s Choupo-Moting against his former team! Pavard has time to pick out his cross from the right and Choupo-Moting rises to power the header past Navas. It’s a great header, but you have to think that Marquinhos would have stopped that. Choupo-Moting had lost Danilo in the box.

33’: There’s another substitution, this time for Bayern, as Alphonso Davies comes on to replace Goretzka. The German doesn’t look injured, and it’s Alaba who steps into midfield, with Hernandez to centre back and Davies to left back. A complete rejig of the back four, then.
