Both Bayern Munich and PSG have qualified for the knockout stages, but this is a battle for the top position in the table and the Ligue 1 outfit and the team with a better chance to achieve this.
ayern Munich fought hard at Anderlecht to snatch a narrow 2-1 to keep the three point gap against PSG. The Bundesliga side lost 0-3 at Paris on opening day and they need to overturn that deficit to steal the number 1 position in the table. This is next to impossible if one is well aware of PSG’s form in all competitions this season.
The Parisiens thrashed Celtic 7-1 on matchday 5, which is arguable one of their biggest win in European nights. With 5 wins in 5 and a win against Bayern put them in an excellent position to qualify as group winners.
It will be worth to note that PSG have scored a whooping 24 goals in the Champions League this season, the most by any team at this stage.

Bayern Munich vs PSG: Prediction
PSG are in terrific form this season, but this will be the first time that they are playing away to a quality side.
Bayern have an impeccable home record in the Champions League and not many have returned with points in their bag.
Also, Jupp Heynckes knows well that beating PSG by 4 goal margin is almost impossible. Therefore they are not likely to go out there with an all out attacking strategy. Instead a solid performance against a strong team will be the Bavarian manager want. Therefore, don’t expect the Bundesliga side to leave too many holes at the back to let the Parisiens to score a handful here.
