Dortmund vs PSG 02/18/2020
Borussia Dortmund has been on a goal-scoring tear ever since the second half of the season. They are one of the top attacking squads in the world. However, their defense has been really inconsistent at times. Still, it makes them a must-watch team especially against a PSG squad boasting an even better attacking line. Dortmund finished second in their group behind Barcelona and edging out teams like Inter Milan and Slavia Praha.
The Black and Yellows have only faced PSG twice in all competitions, both games ending in a draw during the 2011 Europa League. Take note that the last time Dortmund got past the Round of 16 was under current PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel, back in 2017.
Players to Watch:
Erling Braut Haaland (8 goals and 1 assist while at RB Salzburg), Achraf Hakimi (4 G), Julian Brandt (2 G, 3 A), Jadon Sancho (2 G, 2 A), Roman Burki (2 clean sheets).
Paris Saint-Germain is one of the favorites to win this season’s Champions League as they boast the attacking foursome of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Angel Di Mari and Mauro Icardi. However, PSG has failed in the Champions League season after season. They can land in hot water with Dortmund, a team that might have an inconsistent defense but a deadly offense.
It should be noted that PSG has exited the Champions League in the Round of 16 in the past three seasons. They suffered the biggest collapse in the competition’s history in 2017 against Barcelona followed by an embarrassing performance against Real Madrid in 2018. Just last season, they have eliminated on away goals by a weak Manchester United side.
Players to Watch:
Kylian Mbappe (5 G, 3 A), Mauro Icardi (5 G), Angel Di Maria (2 G, 3 A), Pablo Sarabia (2 G, 1 A), Neymar (1 G, 2 A), Keylor Navas (4 CS).
