PSG vs Bayern: 8 Key Stats

April 13, 2021

We look at 8 stats ahead of Tuesday night’s Champions League quarter-final, second leg tie. PSG won the first leg 3-2

PSG have won all 4 of their previous games in which they’ve hosted the German side in European competition

Bayern Munich will be looking to progress from a Champions League knockout tie after losing the first leg for the first time since 2014-15 (v FC Porto in the quarter-finals) – the German side have been eliminated in each of the last 4 instances when losing the first leg

Only 3 of the last 50 teams to lose the first leg at home in a Champions League knockout tie have managed to progress

PSG became the first team to beat Bayern Munich under Hansi Flick in 17 games in the Champions League. The German side haven’t failed to win both legs of a knockout tie in the competition since the 2018-19 season

After losing his first knockout tie as a manager in the Champions League, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino is now looking to win his fifth straight two-legged knockout tie in the competition

Kylian Mbappe has scored 8 goals in 8 appearances for PSG in the Champions League this season, and would set a new record for most goals by a French player in a single Champions League campaign if he scores again

Mbappe will be looking to score in 4 consecutive Champions League knockout appearances for the second time in his career, having previously done so in his first four such games for Monaco in 2017. 

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has scored in each of his last 2 Champions League games for Bayern Munich (two goals), just one fewer than he managed in his first 22 games in the competition, and one more than he managed in 10 such outings for PSG
