A rematch of last year’s final returns, but this time, there will be two games instead of one. Bayern Munich vs. PSG is one hell of a game and there’s no doubt this will be killer. Looking back at last year’s match, Bayern Munich barely took the win, 1-0, becoming champions for sixth time.
Now, we must say that it hasn’t been exactly the same for the reigning champs. One factor to consider is the absence of Robert Lewandowski due to a knee injury will shift the balance for the French squad. Can they take advantage of this and head back home with the lead? Or will Bayern Munich take the home field advantage and bring fear upon their rivals?
It’s time to take a closer look at this amazing matchup, along with the latest expert preview, Champions League odds and game prediction. You can check out this and many more soccer odds in our online Bitcoin sportsbook.

Why is Bayern Munich a safe bet in Game 1?
This is the 19th time Bayern has reached the quarterfinals, putting them in the lead with one more than Barcelona. This is also their 24th Champions League campaign. They’re coming in hot from last season, looking to win the title two years in a row. A lot of pressure on their side.
They head into the game undefeated in the last 19 games in the competition and could become the second team go for 20 consecutive games without losing, such as Manchester United did during 2007 and 2009, winning 25 games in a row. Their performance against French squads is great, winning nine out of the last ten games.
The absence of Lewandowski will bring a lot of pressure to the team. He has scored 10 of 13 games under their newest manager and has scored 15 goals under Flick’s guidance. So there will be a lack of power indeed.

Why is PSG a safe bet in Game 1?
This is the seventh appearance by PSG in the quarter finals. They’ve won five of their eight fames this season. They also come in with 34 consecutive games with a score in each, that’s including these eight games they’ve had so far during this campaign.
They’ve only failed to score in one of the last 43 Champions League games, which was last season’s final against Bayern Munich. They are currently averaging 2.5 goals per game since the 2016-17 campaign.
The player to watch on the French side is Kylian Mbappé, who’s been involved in 35 goals in 33 games during the tournament, which he currently keeps a record of 19 goals and 16 assists. This season, he’s scored six in seven games. He can definitely bring the heat on the Bayern.

Bayern Munich vs. PSG Betting Prediction
Considering each of their recent performances and current squad, you can say that PSG has the upper hand. Not dealing with Lewandowski for two games can shift the tide in favor of the French squad. But that doesn’t guarantee a thing.
If you look at Bayern’s squad, they have plenty of arsenal left to convert this into a huge win, especially when playing at home. But PSG has much more blood in their eyes after losing to them in the finals. They want that title after being so close to it. It won’t be easy for Munich and but it won’t be that easy for PSG as well.
