Paris Saint Germain, led by Mauricio Pochettino and with Ángel Di María, Mauro Icardi and Leandro Paredes, will host defending champion Bayern Munich on Tuesday in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals, where they will defend the advantage of the 3-2 win in Germany. The Parque de los Príncipes stadium in Paris will host the rematch that will be played from 2 p.m. with ESPN broadcast.
The winner will await the outcome of the series between Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund, which will be defined on Wednesday in Germany after the 2-1 victory of the English team.
In the reissue of the final of the last edition, Argentina's Pochettino's team surprised the first leg with a valuable 3-2 win in Germany that also snapped a 19-game unbeaten streak for the defending champion.
Bayern Munich, again without their striker Robert Lewandowski, is forced to win by two goals or more in Paris to continue on the path of defending the title it won last year in Lisbon.
To defend that advantage, the DT from Santa Fe will be able to count on Di María and Paredes, and his attacking pair made up of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé but the big loss will be that of the Brazilian Marquinhos, defender, captain and author of one of the goals in Munich. Mauro Icardi, due to a muscle injury, will also remain out of the team.
