Bayern Munich vs. PSG preview: Team news and predicted lineups

Here is our preview, including predicted line-ups, for Wednesday's Champions League Round of 16 second leg clash between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
Bayern Munich are in the driver's seat ahead of their Champions League last-16 second leg clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Bavarians defeated the French champions 1-0 in Paris in the first leg and will now look to seal their place in the next round.

Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann is likely to stick with his recent 3-4-2-1 system, with Kingsley Coman and Alphonso Davies set to start at wing-back ahead of Joao Cancelo.

In addition to their long-term absentees, Bayern will be without Benjamin Pavard, who is suspended. Josip Stanisic is expected to fill in for the Frenchman after starting two consecutive games in a back three.

Sadio Mané will again be an option off the bench, having recently returned from a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

For the away side, Kylian Mbappé is back in full training after he was only fit enough to come off the bench in the first leg, but Neymar will miss out this time due to an ankle problem.

PSG coach Christophe Galtier fielded a four-man backline in the first leg in Paris, but could opt for the three-man defense he used in the last two domestic games. Achraf Hakimi is a doubt, with Nordi Mukiele ready to step in if the Morocco international is not fit enough to play.
