Context could not be more important for this game. Dortmund is gearing up to host Paris Saint-Germain in a decisive clash that could determine their survival in the Champions League.

The outcome of this game, along with the result of the match between Milan and Newcastle, will decide whether they continue in the Champions League or drop to the less prestigious Europa League.

Paris Saint-Germain and Dortmund present starkly contrasting forms.

PSG has been on a winning streak, while Dortmund faced serious setbacks in the past weeks.

Their 2-0 loss against Stuttgart in the DFB Pokal was a major blow, followed by a 2-3 setback against Leipzig in the Bundesliga.

However, Dortmund has faired well in European play, leading their Champions League group.

Champions League Group F Standings

Dortmund faces a significant challenge with Emre Can suspended due to yellow cards, posing a major defensive issue ahead of their clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

But this is also true for Paris Saint-Germain, who will travel without Ousmane Dembélé, also suspended. Dembélé’s likely replacement, Barcola, is seen as less impactful, which could be less problematic for Borussia Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund vs Paris Saint-Germain, Prediction, Odds

The last encounter between these two teams ended in a 2-0 victory for Paris Saint-Germain; logically,  the odds currently lean towards the French team.

However, the Signal Iduna Park is renowned for its extraordinary atmosphere, often regarded as creating the best ‘Tifosi’ in Champions League history.

Despite not being initially favoured, Dortmund has never been this close to European glory in the group stages. And if Dembélé won’t play, it’s more than great news for Dortmund, who can significantly reduce their defensive concerns primarily to Kylian Mbappé. 

It’s much more of a must-win on PSG’s side than it is on Dortmund.

Sitting at 7 points, PSG faces the possibility of being surpassed by the winner of the simultaneous match between Newcastle and Milan.

This scenario heightens the pressure on PSG to secure a victory. Home crowds make a big difference, and the world knows how passionate German fans are.

After two important defeats, the Black And Yellows are eager to return to their winning form. Given this determination, it’s reasonable to expect a victory from Borussia in their upcoming match.

Borussia Dortmund vs Paris Saint-Germain Betting Tip

While most of the factors seem to lean in Borussia’s favour, there is always one element that the Champions League is known for: Superstars.

Kylian Mbappé, under immense pressure to regain his esteemed status, will be the de facto leader of PSG’s forward line.

The assistance of former La Liga star Lee Kang-in could prove invaluable in penetrating Dortmund’s often sloppy defence, particularly in the absence of Emre Can.

This vulnerability was previously exploited by Bayern Munich in their 4-0 victory, highlighting areas Paris Saint-Germain can target to dismantle Dortmund’s defensive setup.
