The pressure is on defending European champions Bayern Munich after their first leg loss. They go to PSG 3-2 behind, knowing that at least two goals have to be scored to keep their grip on the crown. They have to do that of course without the help of top scorer Robert Lewandowski who is still out injured. The first leg loss is the only one they have suffered in their last nine games. It could have been a lot worse for them though after trailing 2-0 early on in the first leg. Despite getting back level, a late goal was conceded and they have an uphill battle now. The weekend saw them concede another late goal and end up drawing 1-1 at home to Union Berlin. Not since 2017 have Bayern lost an away game in the Champions League and that just happened to be a 3-0 loss at PSG. They have played 21 games in this competition since last failing to score in a game and just once in 30 matches.
Could this be the year that PSG finally win the Champions League? They of course lost to Bayern in last season's final but with a 3-2 lead will fancy their chances of making it to a semi-final against either Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund. There is one major problem that the French champions have at present. Their home form isn't good at all with just one win in five and three of them lost. That's affecting their Ligue 1 title challenge and they will hope it doesn't cross over to this competition. They have only won two of their four home Champions League games this season, with Manchester United beating them in October. Of course, they don't have to win this game to knock out Bayern Munich. Five of their last seven matches have seen both teams score. Back that stat to come up in this quarter final second leg.
