"Bayern are a good side, a team that have won everything," PSG manager Christophe Galtier said.
Paris have been using two systems and I think we might start using a third in matches against teams of a certain level. I will ask the coaching staff to work on a new option. 
"We need to find the most balanced model that will allow us to get the ball back as quickly as possible."
Bayern emerged as 1-0 winners over PSG in their last meeting in the Champions League with the match taking place at the Parc des Princes on 13 April 2021.
It was the Bavarians' second win over the Parisians in their last three meetings while the other match ended in a win in favour of PSG in Germany.
