FC Bayern Munich will welcome Paris Saint-Germain for the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal matchup. Both clubs are heading into the matchup.
The capital club will be without two vital midfielders as Marco Verratti tested positive for coronavirus; meanwhile, Leandro Paredes is suspended for yellow card accumulation.
As for the German giants, they’ll be without Robert Lewandowski, who picked up an injury while on international duty. During his press conference with the media, defender Benjamin Pavard discussed how Bayern Munich would do without Lewandowski.
Canal Supporters relayed the comments from the 25-year-old.
“It doesn’t change much except that he’s not here and he’s the best number nine in the world. Of course, we miss him, but we also have a big reservoir and a big squad with Choupo or other players who can also play in this position,” Pavard said.
“Choupo had an excellent game against Leipzig. We have a big team, a big squad. Of course, we miss him, but we adapt, and we stay on the same way of playing, and we don’t ask ourselves any questions.”
