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.

Bayern have a 1-0 lead after a Kingsley Coman goal gifted them the victory at the Parc des Princes on February 14.

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.

Not since the 2010-11 campaign have Bayern been eliminated from the Champions League when winning the first leg of a knockout tie.

In addition, Bayern have not failed to score in a Champions League home game since April 2018 and PSG have an uphill task here.

PSG managed to take seven points from their three Champions League group games away from home but have not kept a clean sheet since 2020.

If PSG are eliminated tonight, it will be the fifth time in seven seasons where the French giants have been eliminated from the Champions League last 16.

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.

Kylian Mbappe became PSG’s all-time goal scorer over the weekend and all eyes will be on him to inspire a fight back here and avoid another exit.
