Benjamin Pavard is absent for Bayern Munich’s Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain after he was sent off during the dying embers of the first leg.

France international Pavard was given his marching orders while his team were closing in on an away win thanks to Kingsley Coman’s goal.

Manuel Neuer remains a long-term absentee, although Sadio Mane is now available and he is named on the bench at the Allianz Arena.


In Pavard’s place, Josip Stanisic lines up in a back for the German champions, along with Dayot Upamecano and Matthijs de Ligt, as Julian Nagelsmann attempts to halt the looming threat of Kylian Mbappe.

The devastating forward is available from the off for PSG, having sat out much of the first leg due to a slight injury, and starts for the visitors. He and Lionel Messi will be tasked with turning things around for the Ligue 1 side.

Neymar, however, miss the rest of the season after the Ligue 1 champions confirmed the Brazil international was set for ankle surgery.
