What results in the direct confrontations between the two clubs?
It is the PSG which leads, with five victories to four (12 goals everywhere), after nine confrontations in an official match, still in the Champions League.
A trompe l'oeil assessment: the Bavarians have won three of the last four matches between the two clubs, including the C1 final in August 2020. The most striking goal?
This exceptional rush signed George Weah, during a Parisian victory in Munich, in 1994 (0-1).

Lewandowski or Verratti, who will be missed most by his team?
That's the € 1 million question… With 42 goals in 36 matches since the start of the season, Robert Lewandowski is the strongman of the Bavarian attack, probably the best center forward on the planet.
Beyond the numbers, Bayern is not the same without him.
Marco Verratti was given more responsibility and freedom by Mauricio Pochettino.
And it suffices to review the match that the “Little Owl” had delivered to Barcelona, in the round of 16 first leg, to understand that it was a good idea.
Without him, PSG coughs and struggles to build.
The answer to this question will depend, at least in part, on the outcome of this double confrontation.
Note that it is the former Parisian Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting who will be established in place of Lewandowski.
Serge Gnabry could have stuck to it, but the Covid-19 puts him on the sidelines.
Marc Roca, Corentin Tolisso and Douglas Costa are also unavailable.
On the PSG side, Alessandro Florenzi, Layvin Kurzawa, Leo Paredes and Juan Bernat are absent.

Who would be suspended on return in the event of a warning?
On the side of FC Bayern, no player is under suspension in the event of a warning on Wednesday.
On the other hand, they will be two in this case in the Parisian ranks: Idrissa Gueye and Neymar Jr. Which Neymar is hot-blooded at the moment, as demonstrated by his recent expulsion, no later than last Saturday against Lille.
Also one toast from a suspension match, Marco Verratti and Layvin Kurzawa are forfeited.
Warned during the return match against FC Barcelona in the round of 16, Leo Paredes is suspended this Wednesday.
- Neymar and Mbappé must show the way
What dynamic for the two clubs?
Aside from their elimination in the German Cup against Kiel and a few snags here and there in the league, Bayern has been going super since the start of the season, adding in particular the European Supercup, the German Supercup and the Cup. from the world of clubs to its rich track record.
Hansi Flick's players remain on 14 wins in their last 16 matches in all competitions, including seven straight wins.
Last Saturday, in Leipzig (0-1), to take a probably decisive lead for the Bundesliga title.
And they are undefeated in the Champions League (7 wins, 1 draw, 24 goals scored, 7 conceded).
On the side of PSG, irregularity is the norm.
If they won the Champions Trophy and they are still racing in all competitions, Mauricio Pochettino's players alternate the good and the less good.
In C1, they won their group on the wire, before dismissing Barça.
In the league, they remain on a setback against Lille (0-1) which cost them pole in the standings.
Their eighth loss this season in L1, including five in Paris.
