PSG vs Bayern Munich 27 September 2017: UCL Preview and Predictions

Neymar missed the goalless draw away to Montpellier at the weekend but is expected to be fit for PSG's high-profile Champions League tie at home to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

But it seems not everyone at PSG was happy about Neymar joining the club.

"They see that we are a serious team with the players we have bought in the past and also this year, and now we can also be among the candidates to win the Champions League".

Wednesday's opponents Bayern have been critics of the French side too. This is game between two of the best sides in Europe at the moment and as a result I am expecting this to be an incredible match.

The president of Spain's La Liga, Javier Tebas, recently accused PSG of "laughing" at UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules with their signings of Neymar and Mbappe, who had also been a target for Real Madrid.

The blockbuster signing of Neymar reinforces the notion that the club are willing to put their money where their mouth is, but PSG will never truly be satisfied until they secure their first Champions League trophy. Then I came here, and we made a big step forward to be able to compete with the best.

Everton have since been linked with an audacious move for the Uruguay global, who was the top scorer in Ligue 1 last season with 35 goals.

Bayern and PSG have won their opening games in Group B and will be meeting for the first time in 17 years.

But when asked about PSG's star-studded "MCN" attack - Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar - Robben was unfazed: "The important thing is the performance of the team, not just to focus on particular players".

"There will be 20 players training later and if everything goes well, there will still be 20 tomorrow", Emery said.

"Those who have the responsibility to be the most prepared (to take a penalty) are Neymar and Cavani", said the Spaniard, who saw Cavani score from the spot in the 5-0 win at Celtic two weeks ago. "He offers versatility. He can help us by starting or by coming on".
