There is a rematch of last season's UEFA Champions League final in the 2020/21 quarter-finals, with holders Bayern facing Paris Saint-Germain in the Munich first leg.
Holders Bayern München are reunited with the side they beat to win the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League final as Paris Saint-Germain come to Germany for the first leg of their quarter-final.
• A 59th-minute header from Bayern winger Kingsley Coman – formerly of Paris – proved enough to separate the sides at Lisbon's Estádio do SL Benfica on 23 August 2020, giving the German club their sixth European Cup and ensuring Paris's first final appearance ended in defeat.
• This season, Bayern have remained unbeaten to reach their record 19th UEFA Champions League quarter-final while Paris claimed the notable scalp of Barcelona in the round of 16.
Previous meetings
• All eight of the teams' matches before last season's final had come in the UEFA Champions League group stage – and all but one of those contests were won by the home side. Overall, despite last season's final defeat, Paris have the edge with five wins to Bayern's four.
• In the 2017/18 group stage, Paris were 3-0 winners at the Parc des Princes – Neymar scoring the home side's final goal – before a 3-1 Bayern success in Munich in which a Corentin Tolisso double added to Robert Lewandowski's opener; Kylian Mbappé scored for Paris.
• In the first group stage in 2000/01 – a campaign that culminated in Bayern winning the competition for the fourth time – home substitute Laurent Leroy's 90th-minute strike gave Paris a 1-0 victory at the Parc des Princes. Again Bayern turned the tables in Munich, goals from Hasan Salihamidžić (3) – now the club's sporting director – and substitute Paulo Sérgio (89) securing a 2-0 success.
• In 1997/98 Bayern ran out 5-1 winners in the first game in Germany, Giovane Elber and Carsten Jancker each scoring twice and Thomas Helmer getting the other with Marco Simone scoring Paris's consolation. Paris were 3-1 victors in France, their goals coming from Franck Gava (17), Florian Maurice (73) and Leroy (75); Markus Babbel had levelled for Bayern.
• The French club came out on top twice in 1994/95, George Weah and Daniel Bravo earning a 2-0 home win and Weah, again, claiming the only goal in Germany – the only away victory either team has managed in this fixture. ... ackground/
