FC Bayern with face off against PSG later this month, but PSG’s star forward Kylian Mbappe recently picked up a knock that is supposed to have him out for 3 weeks, therefore missing the first leg of the match up.
Bayern (+600) and PSG (+750) are 2 of the top 3 favorites to win the Champions League this season along with Manchester City (+170).
Mbappe is having himself another stellar season for PSG, scoring 25 goals and assisting 6 goals in just 26 games across all competitions. In the Champions League specifically he has 7 goals and 3 assists in 6 games, so he is certainly a major threat to Bayern.
Bayern’s coach Julian Nagelsmann refuses to believe that Mbappe will not play in the first leg, and will have to have a gameplan for when and if he does play in the first leg.
“I don’t believe he will miss the game. I expect him to play. I don’t know what injury he has, but the statement on PSG’s website is pretty vague,” Nagelsmann said.
Nagelsmann has already done his research, and he’s not buying into the idea of Mbappe being out for that long.
Bayern are favorites to beat PSG across both legs, boasting -160 odds to advance while PSG have +120 odds to advance.
