PSG and Bayern Munich will meet at the Parc des Princes in the 2022-2023 UEFA Champions League. Read here to see the likely line-ups for this spectacular Round of 16 match.
In a much-anticipated match, PSG hosts Bayern Munich in the round of 16 in the 2022-2023 Champions League. The first game is scheduled for Tuesday, February 14, 2023 at 3:00 PM (ET). Here are the likely lineups for both teams.
PSG is experiencing the worst period of the season. After the Qatar 2022 World Cup break, they have three Ligue 1 defeats against Lens, Rennes and Monaco. In addition, they were knocked out of the French Cup in the round of 16 by arch-rivals Olympique Marseille.
On the other hand, Bayern Munich and their dominance in the Bundesliga could be threatened thanks to Union Berlin, the biggest surprise in Europe this season. However, they had a perfect UEFA Champions League group stage with six wins in six games against Inter, Barcelona and Viktoria Plzeň.
