Champions League – Borussia Dortmund-PSG
Borussia Dortmund faces PSG at the Signal Iduna Park in a first leg from the 1/8-finals of the Champions League between these two teams.
Being in a tough group with Barcelona and Inter Milan, Borussia Dortmund managed to finish second and progress to the 1/8-finals. Lucien Favre’s team showed effiency in the crucial moments, the most crucial one being their win over Inter Milan in Dortmund.
On Friday Borussia Dortmund sent a message to PSG with a dominant 4-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga. Der Borussen showed their best football and gave a hint about their current quality. Lukasz Piszcek opened the score for Dortmund in the first half, while Jadon Sancho, Erling Haland and Raphael Guerreiro scored three more after the break.
The 19-years old phenomenon Erling Haland is going to be Borussia Dortmund’s most impressive weapon on Tuesday. Since joining the German club in January, the Norwegian striker scored 9 goals in 6 games played.
PSG will make another effort for winning the Champions League for a first time. During the group stage the French club also made a statement, beating Real Madrid for the first place in Group A. Finishing with five wins and one draw, PSG are still unbeaten in the competition during this season. In the group stage they scored 17 goals and conceded just two – that’s pretty good by Thomas Tuchel’s team.
PSG’s manager Thomas Tuchel has the privilege to coach a squad filled with superstars. Mauro Icardi is scoring a lot of goals since he joined the club, while Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are two of the best players in the world. The Argentine veteran Angel Di Maria remains a crucial player for the Parisians as well.
We believe that Borussia Dortmund and PSG will offer us the best of the Champions League on Tuesday. It’d be curious to see PSG’s manager Thomas Tuchel facing his former club. Will this going to help him? Let’s see.
