This Wednesday, March 8, UEFA Champions League action returns for Paris Saint-Germain. The club from the French capital travels to Munich for the second leg of the round of 16 against Bayern. After recovering from his bump of bad results, and spinning three consecutive victories, the team led by Christophe Galtier is now focused on advancing to the next round of the European competition.
It will always be a tall task for PSG, for the simple fact that we are talking about the European Cup. We can talk about the level of both squads, but in the end in a competition with a high level of pressure and teams of this caliber, the matches are defined by small details.
Details such as those presented in the PSG vs. Nantes (4-2), which cost the two goals conceded by the resident team of the Parc des Princes. To get to the quarterfinals, the Parisians must remain focused and showcase all of their firepowers.

The German team won't have Lucas Hernandez available with an ACL injury ruling him out for the season. Benjamin Pavard is out after getting sent off in the first-leg game. Manuel Neuer, who suffered a fracture in the leg after getting eliminated from the World Cup, is also out. Noussair Mazraoui and Sadio Mane are doubts but they are expected to play even if it's just coming off the bench.
Neymar will miss the rest of the season due to an injury, while Presnel Kimpembe will also not be available for this meeting and into next year. Renato Sanches, meanwhile, returned to collective training but it's hard to see him getting any playing time on such short notice.
Marco Verratti should return to the team after not playing last weekend in the Ligue 1 completing a one-game suspension, while Marquinhos is also expected to be available after suffering a slight injury against Nantes last Saturday.
The right-back Nordi Mukiele missed the training session on Monday, but is part of the gameday squad, just like Achraf Hakimi.
The Morocco international has been marginalized by an injury in recent weeks, but has also returned to training and has been authorized to play, despite having been accused of rape.
