Rummenigge: Bayern respectful of PSG’s attack

FC Bayern München chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says the club respect Paris Saint-Germain’s star-studded attack, although he is confident the Bavarians will perform well.

Bayern take on the Parisians in a UEFA Champions League Group B encounter on Wednesday, with both side’s no doubt intent on cementing their grip on the standings.

Currently, PSG top the group on goal difference after hammering Scotland’s Celtic 5-0 in their opening match. Meanwhile, Bayern also started well with a clinical 3-0 win over Belgium’s Anderlecht.

Nonetheless, Wednesday’s clash between the two powerhouse teams could prove to be decisive in who eventually comes out on top. With that said, Rummenigge takes the view that the German champions have more experience in the Champions League, despite being respectful of PSG’s attack involving the likes of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe.

He told his club’s official website, “We’re respectful of PSG, especially their attack. They have three world-class players up front. However, we have more experience in the Champions League.

“I know our team and I’m convinced they’ll play well tomorrow. I’m sure they’ll be full of concentration and motivation in the game.

“We’re still only in the group stage. It’s not the Champions League final tomorrow. There’s still the return fixture, so tomorrow isn’t all about topping the group. We want to perform well and give us the best chance of winning the group.”
