Can Bayern Turn It Around In Paris?

Bayern Munich face an uphill when they take on Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on Tuesday night. PSG have three away goals to defend, and Bayern are still without star striker Robert Lewandowski. The current holders will need to win by at least two goals or score four away goals to secure a spot in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

Bayern will also be without highly rated Serge Gnabry, who tested positive for COVID-19 this week. PSG on the other hand will be missing defenders Marquinhos and Kurzawa which will leave them short-staffed in defense. PSG's attack will miss Mauro Icardi, but with Neymar & Mbappe fit, they will still cause problems for Bayern's defence.

"You Have To Salute Al Ahly, But Bayern Dominated"

While it has been suggested in football circles that Al Ahly Coach Pitso Mosimane is under fire in Egypt for his team's inconsistency in the league, it cannot be denied that he has still managed to accomplish quite a bit during his short time with the club so far. The team known as the “club of the century” are notoriously critical of their coaching staff, essentially expecting a win in every fixture, so while ‘Jingles’ might be under a bit of pressure from the ‘Red Devils’ hierarchy, South Africans will still celebrate his CAF Champions League triumph and managing to help Al Ahly reach the FIFA Club World Cup semi-finals where they were recently knocked out by European champions Bayern Munich.

In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’s “The Bundesliga Connection”, DW sports correspondent Kres Harrington provides an analysis of the Club World Cup semi-final stating "obviously coach Pitso Mosimane is well-respected in South Africa and has managed to accomplish quite a bit in a short time with Al Ahly, so you have to salute the African champions for making it this far and competing but the match was totally dominated by Bayern". In the full podcast, Harrington also discusses Liverpool's trouble getting into Germany for their UEFA champions League round of 16 tie against RB Leipzig, Dortmund’s continued struggles, and more from the latest round of fixtures in the Bundesliga.
