Bayern Munich will take the next step to defending their Champions League crown when they face Paris Saint-Germain in the last eight first leg on Wednesday.

It promises to be an entertaining game, although there are a few key players missing on both sides.

Bayern’s biggest issue is obviously the absence of top scorer Robert Lewandowski, who is still suffering from the knee problem he picked up on international duty with Poland.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting could start against his former club in place of the former Borussia Dortmund man.

Serge Gnabry is likely to start having come off the bench in the win at RB Leipzig, but Kingsley Coman will be hoping to keep his place against the club with whom he began his career.

Leroy Sane should feature on the opposite wing.

The Bavarians will welcome back Alphonso Davies from a domestic suspension which kept him out at the weekend, meaning Lucas Hernandez should move into centre back to partner David Alaba.

Meanwhile, Marco Verratti is still missing for PSG, and Mauro Icardi is unlikely to play any part. Moise Kean will be hoping to add to his three European goals in attack.

Neymar’s red card in defeat at Lille won’t affect his chances of playing, while Ander Herrera may come in in midfield.
