PSG and Bayern, two giants injured in the return to the Champions League

PSG’s ambition to finally win its first Champions League crashed in the last two editions with painful eliminations against Bayern and Real Madrid.

But this time, PSG are not facing a ‘big’ and Luis Enrique’s team arrives at a great moment: they have not lost since the defeat in Milan at the beginning of November and since the group stage ended they have played ten games in all competitions, with eight wins and two draws.

Quite the opposite of Real Sociedad, which does not look like the team at the beginning of the season that was able to emerge as champion of a group that included Inter, current continental runners-up.

Since playing in Milan in mid-December (0-0), the Basque team has played 12 games in all competitions, of which they have only won four.

Real Sociedad is not the perfect machine of previous seasons and it is a team that has a hard time scoring: in half of those last twelve games it was unable to score and only scored two goals in two, although it is also true that it concedes few goals. and this season they have not lost a game by more than one goal difference.

This period has coincided with the plague of casualties suffered by Imanol Aguacil’s team, the main one being that of its captain and scorer Mikel Oyarzabal, whose presence in the Parque de los Príncipes is an unknown.

Likewise, in tomorrow’s other tie, Bayern Munich visits Lazio in Rome after the humiliation received last Saturday in Leverkusen (3-0) against a Bayer that seems increasingly closer to ending the club’s hegemony Bavarian, winner of the last eleven Bundesliga.

Bayern, however, has shown throughout its history that the more injured it is, the more dangerous it is. Also this season: after being eliminated at the beginning of November by a 3rd division team, they beat Dortmund 4-0 in the next game and after being humiliated by Eintracht (5-1) in December they won four consecutive victories.

And the Germans have Harry Kane, scorer of 24 goals in the Bundesliga and 4 in the Champions League, against a Lazio that has had a very irregular season and is 8th in Serie A, far from the fight to repeat its presence in the Champions League on next year.
