The winner of Tuesday's tie will see their rating upgraded by +2 OVR, whilst a draw on the night will see both rewarded with an 87-rated card.

Don't forget that this Showdown is based solely on the 90-minute match, not the result of the tie.

Costs

The estimated costs for both of the SBCs are very similar.

Those on PlayStation can complete either Tolisso or Kehrer for around 200,000 coins, Xbox users for 185,000 coins and PC gamers can do so for 230,000 coins.

You can opt to complete both should you wish and, if you are predicting a draw, then it might not be such a bad idea to do so.

PSG Lead

The shock of the quarter final first legs came in Munich as Kylian Mbappe helped PSG to a 3-2 victory over Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich are the bookmakers favourites to win the second leg at the Parc de Prince, though they will have to score twice if they are to advance to the second leg.

Predictions

It's a really difficult one to call.

Robert Lewandowski is a doubt to feature in the second leg having missed the first leg with injury, though his presence could make all the difference.

Keep an eye on Lewandowski's fitness status as the week goes on, if the Bayern forward is fit, we back them to go through.

Who to Complete

Both cards are decent in their own right, though we feel that Tolisso provides the better value.

Don't forget that this upgrade is applied based on the result on the night, not who progresses,

We're backing Bayern to get the job done, so we're going to recommend completing Tolisso.

Don't forget that you are not limited to one or the other either. If both fit your side, then you can complete both!
