Bayern Munich will need to win tonight against PSG, having lost 3-2 at the Allianz Arena last week. Both sides will be out on the streets of Paris right now hoping to recruit enough passers by to fill the subs bench, having suffered so many injuries in recent weeks. PSG will be without Marquinhos, Mauro Icardi, Layvin Kurzawa, and Juan Bernat, though they may see Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes back in the squad. Bayern, on the other hand, will be without Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry, Niklas Sule, Corentin Tolisso, and Douglas Costa, while Lucas Hernandez and Leon Goretzka are both doubts for the tie. Whoever goes out at this stage will have their excuses at the ready!

The rest of the quarterfinal games will be played tomorrow, with Borussia Dortmund hosting Man City, needing a win to reverse the 2-1 loss in the first leg, and Liverpool needing to make up two goals after a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid.

All of the ties are close enough that they could easily swing the other way. So there’s plenty to look forward to!
