Michael Owen has backed Bayern Munich to win against Paris Saint-Germain at home in the Champions League this week.

German giants Bayern will take on French powerhouse PSG at the Allianz Arena in Munich in the first leg of their last-16 tie on Wednesday evening.

Bayern are the defending European champions, having defeated PSG in the final of the Champions League last season.

Hans-Dieter Flick’s side got the better of Lazio 6-2 on aggregate in the last round and will head into the match against PSG on the back of a 1-0 win against RB Leipzig away from home in the Bundesliga.

Meanwhile, PSG lost 1-0 to Lille at home in the league at the weekend and are now three points behind them in second place in the Ligue 1 table.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side eased past Barcelona 5-2 in the last round, but former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Owen has backed Bayern to win the match on Wednesday 3-1.

Owen said: “There will be no Robert Lewandowski for Bayern Munich ahead of the visit of PSG. It goes without saying that’s a big blow, however, Bayern are the form side heading into the match.

“Losing 1-0 at home to Lille at the weekend, the pressure looks to be mounting already on Mauricio Pochettino. It couldn’t be more different for the hosts.

“They sit well clear at the top of the Bundesliga, and although I can see PSG scoring on the night, I think the competition holders will have too much, even without Lewandowski.”
