What a game to kick off the tournament with for both these teams. As perennial participants, they won't be fazed by the task ahead, but the Germans arrive in an upbeat mood, whereas PSG has reason to be worried.
They looked out of sorts in a Friday night defeat, while Dortmund fought back well to claim a win in Freiburg on Saturday. It doesn't take away from the fact, though, they too have looked a little too wobbly at this early stage of the season.
PSG scored 18 while allowing 13 against in the past ten matches in this tournament. They claimed a clean sheet once on the way.
Borussia Dortmund scored 17 goals, conceded ten and managed a clean sheet four times in their previous ten matches in this tournament.
PSG vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
PSG are looking to bounce back from a recent setback and get back to winning ways. In their last three matches, they first took out Lens by 3-1, before beating Lyon by 1-4. The winning streak came to an end against Nice, who ran out 2-3 winners. PSG won four of their last six Champions League matches on home soil, while drawing once and losing once. They conceded six and scored 15 goals.
Borussia Dortmund Form
Borussia Dortmund look solid currently after going three matches unbeaten, which started by drawing 1-1 against Bochum. They followed that up by sharing the spoils with FC Heidenheim in a 2-2 draw, before taking out Freiburg in a 2-4 win. Borussia Dortmund managed to win just once in their past six away games in the Champions League. On top of winning once they also drew one as well as losing four, while scoring 13 time and letting in seven.
Bookmakers have PSG down as rather big favourites for the win, when Borussia Dortmund arrive at Parc des Princes. While it might prove problematic, we still believe they will come through and deliver.
