Bayern Munich are keen to finish what they started as they host PSG in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last 16 tie.

The last 16 of the UEFA Champions League is finally here and it begins with a mega clash as PSG host German giants Bayern Munich

The French champions will battle it out in the first leg against the German league champions hoping to put one foot in the quarters.

PSG finished second in Group H despite finishing level on 14 points with Benfica, but the Portuguese side finished top on away goals scored.

Bayern on the other hand had a perfect record in Group C, winning all their games and finishing with 18 points, conceding just 2 goals.

The hosts have won six of their previous seven Champions League home games, beating Manchester City, Real Madrid and Juventus in that period.

PSG have also failed to score in just one out of their last 32 UCL games, giving this the potential to be a goal-frenzied encounter.

Bayern are no strangers at this stage, having progressed from the last-16 in nine of the last 10 seasons, including their last three European campaigns.

The last time these two sides met in the Champions League was in April 2021 and Bayern were 1-0 winners after losing 3-2 at home in the first leg.

This game provides a great opportunity for you to place a single bet on either side you fancy to get a first leg win.
