Borussia Dortmund vs Paris Saint-Germain: Match Preview, Team News And Betting Tips
The Champions League knockout stage is set to kick off tonight and two teams who look to get on the front foot and play attacking football Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain meet in the Champions League Last 16 First Leg on Tuesday.
Both Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain have to get through some tough mental obstacles having struggled to make the Quarter Final of the European competition in recent years.
Paris Saint-Germain, in particular, have found ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory on a number of occasions and there is a fragility about them which makes it hard to really back them with confidence once we get to this stage.
However, they are facing a Borussia Dortmund team that have some talented players but who are perhaps lacking some experience and know-how. That can be huge once you get into Knock Out Football with the kind of pressures that come with the Champions League ties.
Borussia Dortmund do get forward and score goals, but they are left vulnerable at the back and they are facing a Paris Saint-Germain team who have scored a lot of goals away from home.
PSG are unbeaten in 6 away games in the Champions League and last season they were comfortable winners in the Last 16 First Leg at Manchester United before blowing things at home, and they do look like they can provide a huge threat in this one.
Dortmund’s Thomas Delaney, Marco Reus, and Julian Brandt are all doubtful for this fixture whiles PSG’s Marquinhos, Juan Bernat, and Neymar are all hoping to be involved. Presnel Kimpembe is a doubt.
In the Group Stage, they scored twice in a 2-2 draw at Real Madrid and Inter Milan did score twice here in their 3-2 loss at Borussia Dortmund. The Bundesliga club takes chances going forward and can score goals and the chances of both being created and given away suggest backing a lot of goals to be scored.
