Bayern Munich vs PSG lineups: Starting XIs, confirmed team news, injury latest for Champions League today

Evening Standard

Robert Lewandowski is absent for Bayern Munich’s Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain tonight.

The star striker, regarded as the best in the world, suffered a knee injury while on international duty with Poland, ruling him out of both quarter-final legs.

Kingsley Coman scored the only goal as Bayern beat PSG in last year’s final, and he may have to do it again.

Leon Goretzka last time out stepped up with the winner against RB Leipzig, with Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich both involved. All three have been outstanding this season and will be tasked with making up for Lewandowski’s absence, along with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Serge Gnabry has contracted coronavirus, so misses the game. Leroy Sane comes in.

PSG are without their two best midfielders. Marco Verratti has also contracted the coronavirus – for the third time – and the tough-tackling Leandro Paredes is suspended for the first leg.

Danilo Pereira and Idrissa Gueye could find themselves under a lot of pressure to stop Bayern from dictating the game, so PSG’s wide players will probably have to drop back and help out.

Bayern Munich XI: Neuer, Pavard, Sule, Alaba, Lucas, Kimmich, Goretzka, Sane, Muller, Coman, Choupo-Moting

Subs: Nubel, Martinez, Boateng, Davies, Sarr, Nianzou, Musiala

PSG XI: Navas, Dagba, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo, Danilo Pereira, Gueye, Di Maria, Draxler, Neymar, Mbappe
