Paris Saint-Germain vs. Bayern Munich: Probable line-ups and stats

Bundesliga- FC Bayern München vs VfL Wolfsburg

"They are among the candidates to win the Champions League".

Carlo Ancelotti does know Marco Verratti well, as he was the manager in charge at the Parc des Princes when PSG signed him. "It's the result of five years of work".

PSG looked relaxed ahead of their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

PSG, which has been backed by the almost unlimited funds of Qatar Sports Investments since 2011, craves to be regarded as equals by Europe's biggest clubs. When the Brazil star joined from Barcelona in a world record 222 million euro transfer, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said the German side would never spend so much on a player, and called for the introduction of a player's salary cap.

The indirect surface-to-surface fire, he said , was believed to have come from either Syrian or Russian forces. State TV al-Ikhbariya filmed from inside the town, showing plumes of black smoke rising into the sky.

Nevertheless, the biggest test for Bayern's shaky defence - which threw away a two-goal lead at home to struggling Wolfsburg in a 2-2 draw last Friday - will be to contain "MCN".

The former PSG coach also said that he was not scared of his former club despite Bayern's problematic start to the new season. The team has tried to quash these rumours but with Neymar already the center of speculation over jealousy with Lionel Messi at Barcelona it's tough to think that there isnt a little bit of ego massaging needed to get the best of the brilliant Brazilian. I am convinced we can get something out of this game'. We have more serious sporting enemies.

Bayern president Uli Hoeness launched a thinly-veiled attack on PSG's spending policy in an interview on Monday, but Rummenigge focused on the football. Both marquee signings have enjoyed bright starts to the new season, but it is the clash between Edinson Cavani and Neymar over penalty duty that has been making the headlines. Emery did not say which one of the two would take penalties if needed against Bayern.

Neymar has been included in Paris St Germain's squad for Wednesday's Champions League game against Bayern Munich after recovering from a foot injury, coach Unai Emery said on Tuesday. "The club has improved and has more experience after a lot of investment".
