Dortmund vs PSG Preview

  • Tournament – Champions League
  • Date – Wednesday, May 01
  • Kick-off Time – 08:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Signal Iduna Park

The two European giants will battle out each other in the UEFA Champions League semi-final first-leg tie on Wednesday, May 01. This season, both clubs are trending in opposite directions and PSG has a great chance to win this tie against a vulnerable Dortmund who have struggled domestically but have progressed well in the European stages.

The highly-anticipated fixture has previously been contested only six times with PSG winning two, drawing three, and losing only one against the Black and Yellow. PSG are on course for a treble this season and it has been a good stretch for the French champions who are unbeaten in the league since September 2023. Also, Paris Saint Germain is entering this game after clinching their 12th Ligue 1 title.

Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, has endured an inconsistent season and has already played PSG twice earlier in the season’s group stages. But they still have a chance for glory in Europe, even though this is their first semi-final appearance since 2012-13. This tie would be extremely close fought, especially with the presence of the tournament’s current top scorer Kylian Mbappe who has netted eight goals so far.

The French giants are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture. They will enter this game off the back of a 3-3 stalemate with Le Havre over the weekend. Luis Enrique’s men are on the verge of another Ligue 1 title and cruising their way to the league crown. PSG have extended their unbeaten run in Ligue 1 to 26 matches since their loss against Lyon in September 2023.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund have clawed their way to the semi-final in Europe’s top-tier club competition for the first time since 2012-13. They have managed to win four out of six Champions League matches at home.

Prediction: Dortmund 1-2 PSG
