Bayern Munich welcome Paris Saint-Germain to the Allianz Arena this evening in the first leg of the teams’ Champions League quarter-final tie.

Tonight’s game – between the German champions and French champions – is a rematch of last season’s final, from which Bayern emerged 1-0 winners for their first title in the competition since 2013. The trophy has long eluded PSG despite their domestic dominance, but they will have been buoyed by their last-16 triumph over Barcelona this term, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men securing a 5-2 aggregate victory that began with a stunning 4-1 first-leg win. Bayern, meanwhile, were 6-2 victors on aggregate against Lazio, and are unbeaten in their last 16 outings.

The Bundesliga outfit enter tonight’s fixture on the back of a crucial 1-0 league win against second-placed RB Leipzig, whereas PSG suffered a 1-0 Ligue 1 defeat by Lille, with both sides reduced to 10 men in the final moments of that game – though Neymar’s red card will not affect his involvement here. In contrast, Bayern’s star man Robert Lewandowski will miss out due to injury, with both teams set to be without numerous players on account of a mixture of fitness issues and Covid-19 infections. Follow live updates of Bayern Munich vs Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League quarter-finals below.

42’: Another Bayern change! Niklas Sule is replaced by Jerome Boateng. Of their starting back four, only Pavard remains in his original position at right back.

40’: At the other end, Neuer plays a sloppy pass straight to Di Maria in PSG’s midfield, but the Argentinian can’t get it under control and is crowded out before he’s able to shoot at goal.

GOAL! Bayern Munich 1-2 PSG (CHOUPO-MOTING 37’)

Bayern are back in it, and it’s Choupo-Moting against his former team! Pavard has time to pick out his cross from the right and Choupo-Moting rises to power the header past Navas. It’s a great header, but you have to think that Marquinhos would have stopped that. Choupo-Moting had lost Danilo in the box.

33’: There’s another substitution, this time for Bayern, as Alphonso Davies comes on to replace Goretzka. The German doesn’t look injured, and it’s Alaba who steps into midfield, with Hernandez to centre back and Davies to left back. A complete rejig of the back four, then.

Bayern Munich 0-2 PSG

32’: This game is madness! Bayern’s defensive line is in tatters, and parts like the Red Sea as Neymar dribbles forward into the box. Bayern eventually get it clear, but PSG look like they could rack up three or four tonight…

Bayern Munich 0-2 PSG

30’: It’s Marquinhos’ last action of the night. The PSG captain must have injured himself in scoring the goal. Ander Herrera comes on to replace him, with Danilo moving back to defence.

GOAL! Bayern Munich 0-2 PSG (MARQUINHOS 28’)

28’: It’s shambolic defending from the holders, and PSG double their lead! It came from a corner, which Bayern cleared, but from the second phase of play Neymar clipped it back into the box. Bayern’s line was all over the place and Marquinhos steals in to receive the pass in acres of space, before taking it down and finishing past Neuer. Such a cool finish.

27’: MISS! Kimmich sends in the corner and finds Choupo-Moting at the back post. The forward is free as a bird but can’t steer his sliding effort on target.

25’: Chance! Muller picks out Coman with cross to the back-post but the winger’s touch lets him down. Coman then beats Dagba on the outside before Marquinhos steps across to put it behind for a corner.

22’: I’ve just seen Mbappe’s goal again, and it has to go down as a howler from Neuer. He tried to guess that Mbappe was going to shoot across goal and is wrong-footed as the shot goes into his near-post. It went straight through the body of the Germany number one.
