FC Bayern Munich starts the Champions League game against Paris Saint-Germain without Thomas Müller.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann relies on Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sané and the two former PSG players Kingsley Coman and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on the offensive in the round of 16 first leg at the Prinzenpark Stadium. Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka appear in defensive midfield. In front of goalkeeper Yann Sommer, who is playing his first premier class game for Bayern, Nagelsmann forms a back four with winter signing Joao Cancelo on the left side of defence.
In Paris, star striker Kylian Mbappé, who has recovered from a thigh injury, is initially on the bench. The world champion Lionel Messi, who was also recently injured, and the Brazilian Neymar, on the other hand, are part of the starting lineup. The 16-year-old Frenchman Warren Zaire-Emery also starts at PSG. The round of 16 second leg will take place on March 8th in Munich.
