Bayern Munich travel to the French capital to test their hands against French giant Paris Saint-German in their second group match today, after Paris Saint-German made heavy spending during the summer to beef-up their squad.
Naturally, if this match was scheduled some years back, the odds would have favoured Bayern Munich who are currently without first-choice goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, but on paper today PSG will be having an upper hand. This match is arguably the first biggest match Paris Saint-German would be playing since after their summer spending.
PSG may have dished out huge sum of amount during the summer transfer to buy big stars such as Neymar, Alves and Mbappe. They have done the appropriate thing by getting them, but keeping them together as a team will determine their success in a big clash like this.
The unresolved face-off between Neymar and Cavani has led to division in the team, and if PSG face Bayern with this kind of spirit, they will need extra magic to get a win as Bayern will obviously be coming to France to get at least one point, while they wait for the second-leg in Germany.
Moreover, Neymar and Cavani’s misunderstanding have gotten to a level where the duo no longer pass to each other on the field, and this is quite unhealthy for a game like football where team-work is key towards success. If this spirit continues today, Bayern could get a vital three points and smile home to Germany.
