Bayern had an indifferent start to their season under Carlo Ancelotti but ever since the Italian has been replaced by old-favourite Jupp Heynckes, their fortunes seem to have improved. The Bavarians are back at the top of Bundesliga and are on the verge of reclaiming their top spot in Champions League. However, it won’t be easy as they are up against the Parisian wall who have already thumped Bayern 3-0 in Paris. Bayern’s other results include identical 3-0 home win and 2-1 away win against Anderlecht and Celtic. They are second in the group now (12 pts, W4, L1) and have already qualified for the next round but need to win by a four-goal margin at least to top.
PSG have won all their five games in the competition conceding only one goal in the process and scoring 24, which is eight more than what any other team could achieve in this year Champions League. They have 15 points so far (W5) and can confirm their top spot by avoiding a defeat or not lose by four goals or more. They started with a 5-0 rout of Celtic and then followed with 3-0 (over Bayern), 4-0 (over Anderlecht) and 5-0 (over Anderlecht). In the last round, Celtic stunned PSG by scoring a goal within a minute but the star-studded Parisians hit back to win 7-1. It will take a super effort to stop them but as Strasbourg showed in the weekend, they are not unbeatable.
