PSG vs Dortmund Preview

  • Tournament – Champions League
  • Date – Tuesday, May 07
  • Kick-off Time – 08:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Parc des Princes

The two European giants will battle out each other in the Champions League semi-final first-leg tie on Wednesday, May 01. This season, both clubs are trending in opposite directions and Dortmund has a great chance to win this tie against PSG who lost the first-leg 1-0 at Signal Iduna Park.

The highly-anticipated fixture has previously been contested only seven times with Dortmund and PSG sharing two wins each. PSG have won the Ligue 1 title this season and will turn their heads in securing their first Champions League trophy. But the French giants have managed to win only three of their last eight matches at home.

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 they have been disastrous in domestic competitions. 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 even though Dortmund picked up an important 1-0 win over PSG in the first leg. Luis Enrique’s men are on the verge of another Ligue 1 title and cruising their way to the league crown. PSG have already reversed a first-leg deficit against Barcelona in the quarter-finals and this will be Mbappe’s final night on the European stage at Parc des Princes

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 already have one foot in the finals even though they have been inconsistent on the domestic front.
