Borussia Dortmund will look to take win their home leg in front of the Black and Yellow Army for the first time this season, having faced the first legs of both the round of 16 and the quarterfinals away from home.

BVB arrives at the game in a difficult situation, as last Saturday they suffered a 4-1 defeat against RB Leipzig. That loss included with a team that included most of their starting eleven. Currently, in a comfortable fifth place in the Bundesliga, they are set to qualify for the UCL next season due to Bundesliga’s seasonal coefficient, almost surely awarding a fifth spot in the Champions League next term.

Paris St. Germain was crowned Ligue 1 champions on Sunday due to AS Monaco’s defeat to Lyon. Luis Enrique played a hybrid side on Saturday in their 3-3 draw against Le Havre to manage minutes prior to the big game. Kylian Mbappé came off the bench in the second half to play a total of 45 minutes.

PSG was on the verge of elimination in the group stage, yet now find themselves just one step away from the final. Luis Enrique does not shy away from the expectations and publicly targets a historical treble for the French side with the UCL as the main focus.

Both teams have recent memories of each other having played in the group stage this season. The opening game of the group saw PSG beat the German side by 2-0 at Parc des Princes, before closing the group stage with a 1-1 draw in Germany, a result that provided passage to the round of 16 for both sides. Borussia Dortmund finished at the top of the group but PSG had the better results in the head-to-head, the only thing that matters this time around.

Excluding this season’s encounters, they have only met once before in the competition, the round of 16 of the 2019/20 season. The first leg was a 2-1 win for BVB at home with Erling Haaland scoring both goals. However, the French side turned the tie around in Paris with a 2-0 win with Neymar leading the team.

Borussia Dortmund vs Paris St. Germain Prediction

Draw at 3.60

BVB is undefeated in the Champions League this season while playing at Signal Iduna Park with three wins and two draws. The group stage game between them was an even match that could have seen either side come out on top.

PSG struggled playing away from home at the start of the competition with defeats against Newcastle (4-1) and Milan (2-1), but since then have been fantastic on the road with key wins in both knockout games at Real Sociedad and Barcelona.

Borussia Dortmund vs Paris St. Germain Tips

Both teams to score at 1.44

Dortmund will go out looking to get an advantage and with all their attacking tools they will be able to break down a PSG defence that has conceded in all their five games on the road this season.

However, this PSG team has a variety of tools to score against low blocks and and an even stronger front three to capitalize on the counter with Mbappé, the current top goalscorer of the competition, with eight goals.
