Borussia Dortmund and PSG square off on Wednesday, with a spot in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 up for grabs.
The final eight games of Matchday 6 will conclude the UEFA Champions League Group Stage on Wednesday. Borussia Dortmund and PSG will square off at Signal Iduna Park in one of the Group of Death’s games this week. The group has so far this season generated some really interesting results.
After the drawings, Borussia Dortmund may not have predicted to win Group F of the UEFA Champions League. After falling to PSG in the first game, the Black and Yellows had managed to string together four straight games without a loss. They have thus profited when the sun was shining while the other clubs were struggling.
However, having lost their previous three games, Edin Terzic’s team is not at their best going into this one. Borussia Dortmund was eliminated from the DFB Pokal due to one of those outcomes. Conversely, PSG enters the game on Wednesday riding a winning streak of eight games in Ligue 1, their most recent triumph coming against Nantes.
However, since defeating Borussia Dortmund in the first week of the Champions League, the French champions have only triumphed once in their last four matches. Les Parisiens are now in a risky situation as the two teams below them in the standings, who play each other on Wednesday, are vying for second place in Group F.
Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Kobel; Sule, Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Bensebaini; Can, Ozcan; Reus, Brandt, Bynoe-Gittens; Fullkrug
Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Skriniar, Hernandez; Lee, Ugarte, Vitinha; Barcola, Kolo Muani, Mbappe
In their five prior matches with PSG in important European competitions, Borussia Dortmund has only triumphed once (D2 L2).
At Borussia Dortmund in the 2019–20 Round of 16, PSG was defeated 2-1. That is one of six losses in 13 UEFA competition visits to Germany (W5 D1).
Similar to Arsenal and Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund has only allowed three goals in their first five group games. Only two shipments are less than Real Sociedad.
The past three away Champions League games for PSG have ended in losses. In key European contests, they have never lost after four straight road trips.
In all four of his Champions League starts against Borussia Dortmund, Kylian Mbappe has contributed to at least one goal (four goals, one assist).
