Mauricio Pochettino’s side went into the game with a 3-2 advantage from the first leg, and they went close to stretching their advantage throughout an entertaining first half, with Neymar hitting the woodwork twice and Kylian Mbappe posing a threat throughout.
However, the goal when it came was scored by a former PSG man, with Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting heading home for Bayern from close range when Navas could only parry a David Alaba shot.
Bayern pushed hard for a second goal after the interval, but the Parisians held firm to progress on away goals.
