Borussia Dortmund vs Paris Saint-Germain Match Preview

Thomas Tuchel returns to his former club Borussia Dortmund knowing he needs to deliver a Champions League achievement this season worthy of Paris Saint-Germain’s vast investment on superstar players.

Given the huge amounts of money PSG have spent on the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, failing to reach the semi-finals of Europe’s elite club competition is not good enough – France’s dominant football force have not made it to the last four since 1995.

That, as a minimum, must be put right this term if Tuchel is to keep his job, you would imagine. He can win every trophy in France – and may well complete the Treble in this campaign – but the Champions League is the holy grail for PSG’s Qatari owners and they will be demanding progress.

When the round-of-16 draw was made in December, Tuchel said he “had to laugh out loud – because I knew it” as his current and previous employers were paired together. But at least his premonition means his team are favourites to advance, even though Dortmund continue to score goals for fun – 33 in their last nine home games.

The problem for the Black and Yellows is that they also concede plenty, though that has been true of PSG too this month as they have shipped eight in their last four matches including a 4-4 draw at Amiens on Saturday when they were 3-1 down at the break.

However, with this being a two-leg tie, a more circumspect approach can be expected from both teams. They will each want to still be very much in it heading to the French capital next month and so a low-scoring draw is our idea of the most likely outcome at the Westfalenstadion.
