As the last-16 round of the Champions League gets underway, football fans can look forward to an eagerly anticipated encounter between two European giants: Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich. The upcoming match promises to be a blockbuster clash that will capture the attention of football enthusiasts worldwide.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Bayern Munich are set to renew their rivalry in the UEFA Champions League for the 12th time. PSG have won six of their 11 previous encounters, while Bayern has won five, with one game ending in a draw. PSG’s 55% win percentage against Bayern is the highest among the six teams that have faced the German giants in the Champions League 10 or more times.
PSG have enjoyed much success at home against Bayern, winning four of their five previous matches at the Parc des Princes. The other game ended in a defeat, but PSG still advanced to the semi-finals last season on away goals. This season, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann has won 58% of his 40 Champions League matches as a manager, putting him in an elite group of coaches. In contrast, PSG’s Christophe Galtier failed to win any of his UCL games in charge of Lille in 2019-20 but has secured four victories in six games as PSG boss this season.
Despite PSG’s success at home, Bayern has been the most successful team in the competition since the start of the 2019-20 season, with the highest win percentage (86.5%) and the most total victories (32) of any team in the UCL. During this period, they have played 37 matches and have lost only two, making them the team that has lost the fewest number of games in the competition.
Both PSG and Bayern will be looking to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and add another trophy to their respective cabinets. With a storied history of competitive encounters between the two teams, this match is expected to be a closely contested affair, with both teams looking to come out on top.
