2022-23 UEFA Champions League — Round of 16 (First Leg)

The 2022-23 UEFA Champions League resumes on Tuesday, Feb. 14 with the Round of 16, featuring a massive collision between Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.

PSG is currently the top team in Ligue 1, starting the campaign with a 15-2-2 start. However, fans are expecting better results after the club finished behind Benfica in the UCL's group stage. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich is off to a 10-5-1 start in Bundesliga and hopes to keep building upon its perfect Champions League record.

PSG vs Bayern Munich Prediction & Pick

Regardless of how good a team that PSG has fielded, the club hasn't found much success against Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich has won four of its last five meetings with Paris Saint-Germain, which includes a 1-0 victory in the most recent matchup — another UCL clash — on Apr. 13, 2021. Bayern Munich was also undefeated in the group stage for a reason, highlighted by its plus-18 goal differential.

PSG might have the star power, but Bayern Munich's defense is one of the best. The Reds can withstand just about any attack and should be able to pick up the win in the first leg of this Round of 16 matchup.

Final Score Prediction: Bayern Munich: 2 | PSG: 1

PSG vs Bayern Munich Best Bet

When it comes to the best bet, taking Bayern Munich at +175 is the way to go. Those odds are more than playable, especially with Bayern Munich dominating PSG in recent history.

If you're looking for a second option, I also recommend backing the total going under 3.5 goals. While the two clubs have the talent to surpass that mark, two of their last three meetings have ended in 1-0 draws. Considering how good Bayern Munich's defense is, I wouldn't be surprised if the total isn't reached.
