THE CHAAAMPIOOONS!!! Sorry, I had to get that out of my system. It’s impossible to not be hyped for this game. This is the big one, the kind of game that the UEFA Champions League is meant to showcase. Bayern Munich vs Paris Saint-Germain, a battle between the best club in Germany and the best club in France - European footballing royalty vs the nouveau riche upstarts. The best players in the world will be on display, and Bayern Munich will have a point to prove to the Parisians after their humiliating loss in Paris.

Team News: It could be better for Bayern. Manuel Neuer, Thiago Alcantara, and Arjen Robben will be unavailable for the game, while David Alaba and Franck Ribery have only just returned from injury. Jupp Heynckes will have Thomas Muller once again at his disposal, and unlike the last game between the two sides, Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng are almost certain to start. The game will be a matter of pride for the Bavarians, who will certainly want revenge for the 3-0 thrashing they received in October. On thing is for certain ...

It’s Bayern time.
