Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Paris Saint-Germain could line up for their Champions League quarter-final first leg with Bayern Munich.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has a hefty number of absentees to contend with for his side's trip to the Allianz Arena for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Bayern Munich.

Midfielder Leandro Paredes is suspended for an accumulation of bookings, while Danilo Pereira is expected to remain sidelined with a calf problem, so Ander Herrera is in line to return to the midfield alongside Idrissa Gueye.

Further up the field, Mauro Icardi could make his comeback from a thigh problem here, but if Pochettino is not prepared to risk his compatriot, Moise Kean should start in front of Angel Di Maria, Neymar and record-breaker Kylian Mbappe.

The 22-year-old has already found the back of the net in six Champions League games this season and would set a personal record if he adds to his tally at the Allianz Arena, and Pochettino is also boosted by the return of Pablo Sarabia, who was fit enough to make the bench against Lille.

However, Marco Verratti completes a trio of midfield absentees after he returned a positive coronavirus test, and Alessandro Florenzi has also contracted COVID-19, so Colin Dagba will hope to earn a start at right-back over Thilo Kehrer.

Layvin Kurzawa's expected absence means that Abdou Diallo's spot on the left-hand side is safe, and Pochettino will once again rely on the brilliance of Keylor Navas, who kept out a spot kick from none other than Lionel Messi last month.

PSG possible starting lineup:
Navas; Dagba, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Gueye, Herrera; Di Maria, Neymar, Mbappe; Kean
