Bayern Munich vs PSG prediction: Visitors value with Mbappe back

Kick-off: 2000, 08/03/2023

Stadium: Allianz Arena

TV: BT Sport

PSG are up against it when travelling to Bayern Munich in the Champions League after going down 1-0 in the first leg in France.

However, they looked a different team once Kylian Mbappe came off the bench that night and we reckon this tie is far from over.

The visitors prevailed 3-2 at Allianz Arena a couple of years ago in this competition, when Mbappe hit a double.

Punters can get 9/10 for them to avoid defeat again here and that is our first Bayern Munich vs PSG prediction.

Coman returns to haunt old friends

Bayern claimed victory in Paris thanks to a 53rd-minute Kingsley Coman strike against his former club, which Gianluigi Donnarumma really should have kept out.

At that point, the German giants were in total control and Donnarumma had to make amends when tipping a close-range Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting effort onto the bar.

Leon Goretzka forced the keeper to make another decent save when getting his head to a corner, as Bayern looked to press home their advantage.

However, the introduction of Mbappe inspired a PSG revival, with the France winger twice having the ball in the back of the net, only for both goals to be ruled out for offside.

Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann commented: “We didn’t expect Paris to be so passive.

“It was a good first half. After the break, we had a great start and then things hung in the balance a little.”

FC Hollywood have since had mixed results in the Bundesliga, losing 3-2 at Borussia Monchengladbach before hammering Union Berlin 3-0 and then prevailing 2-1 at Stuttgart.

We’re expecting this contest to be much more open from the outset and Bayern Munich vs PSG odds.

Mbappe back to his best

Mbappe made his comeback from a hamstring injury in the first leg and his pace repeatedly caused problems for Bayern’s defence during the closing stages.

“When we play attacking football, it’s uncomfortable for them,” said the 24-year-old. “You have to be positive.

“From what I’ve seen, it’s not over. We’re going over there to qualify.”

The good news for PSG is that Mbappe has since shown his well-being with five goals in three Ligue 1 victories.

Lionel Messi and Neymar have also been amongst the goals as Lille were beaten 4-3 before a 3-0 triumph away to second-placed Marseille and a 4-2 home win over Nantes.

The visitors should benefit from Bayern defender Benjamin Pavard being suspended for the second leg.

Anything could happen in what promises to be an exciting encounter and we feel PSG could take the tie to extra-time.

Let’s add 17/4 for an away win by exactly one goal to our Bayern Munich vs PSG betting tips.
