Why Bayern need a good result at PSG


Time to worry about Bayern

Marcotti's Musings

Bayern need a result at PSG to boost team morale, calm lingering tension

Raf Honigstein says Sven Ulreich needs to show he's up for being the goalkeeper in Manuel Neuer's absence at Bayern.
Raf Hongistein explains why Dortmund are full of confidence as they get set to play Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola once declared that the Champions League was "like a good meal in a nice restaurant" whereas the Bundesliga tasted more of "everyday pizza or hamburger." Carlo Ancelotti, a man well-known for his love of food, will undoubtedly appreciate that culinary analogy. The trip to his former club Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night holds out the promise of both a gourmet experience and a satisfied stomach.

Bayern Munich look vulnerable with Sven Ulreich back-up to Manuel Neuer

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti has played down reports of a rift between Carlo Ancelotti and his players.

Bayern Munich have three players they cannot afford to be without for a long time -- Robert Lewandowski, Arjen Robben and Manuel Neuer. The German champions will be rocked by the news their captain and goalkeeper Neuer will miss the rest of the year after surgery on his foot.

Bayern's captain suffered a recurrence of his metatarsal misery and went under the knife on the same day as the German champions, seeking their sixth Bundesliga in succession, moved back to the top of the table with a...
