One of the interesting clashes in the Champions League is between Borussia Dortmund and PSG.
The tour will take place on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, at Signal Iduna Park.
◾️The “yellow-blacks” arrived in the spring of the Champions League after winning the duel with Inter for second place in a group dominated by Barcelona.
◾️In the group stage matches he did not lose in front of his fans.
◾️After 0: 0, Barcelona defeated Inter (3: 2) and Slavia Prague (2: 1).
◾️Julian Brandt managed to score in both victories.
◾️After 2 consecutive defeats, at Bremen and Leverkusen, he was able to defeat Frankfurt with 4: 0 on Friday.
◾️In all these 3 games Halland and the company scored at least 2 goals.
◾️The young striker Erling Haaland is the main hope of the “yellow-blacks”.
◾️Since the January transfer he has registered 9 times in 6 games.
◾️Marco Reus and Thomas Delaney are injured and will miss this match.
◾️Julian Brandt may be missing because of an ankle problem.
◾️In the rest Tuchel has all the options available.
◾️Probably the German side will start in a 3-4-3 with Thorgan Hazard and Sancho in support of Haaland.
◾️In the middle it is expected that Emre Can will play alongside Axel Witsel.
◾️PSG won the Group A step by step, finishing with 5 points over Real Madrid and scoring 17: 2.
◾️Of the 17 goals 10 were scored by Icardi and Mbappe. Both scored 5 times.
◾️Despite the very good balance PSG was saved on the move every time after the break.
◾️In Istanbul he won with a goal scored in the 52nd minute.
◾️In Brugge he broke off in the last half hour, and in Madrid he returned from 0: 2, saving a point, in the last 10 minutes.
◾️Mbappe and the company had 9 successive victories in all competitions until they drew spectacularly at Amiens on Saturday night.
◾️He returned from 0: 3 and drove even with 4: 3 before the last minute of the regular time.
◾️Since the draw at the end of November at the end of November the Parisians have 17 victories and 2 spectacular draws.
◾️The team prepared by Thomas Tuchel is the best defensive of all the teams in the current edition of the Champions League.
◾️Will she succeed for the first time after 3 years of the finals? This will also be very important for the way the 4 “fantastic” evolved from the Paris offensive on Signal Iduna-Park.
◾️Colin Dagba and Abdou Diallo are absent from the French camp.
◾️In addition, in the center of the bottom line could make room Marquinhos, the one who would take advantage of the problem at the thigh of Presnel Kimpembe.
◾️In contrast, Neymar seems to have overcome the injury suffered recently and should be among the starters.
◾️With the Brazilian between the owners, along with Di Maria, Icardi and Mbappe PSG looks phenomenal in the offensive.
◾️When they were all holders, the Parisians scored four times with Amiens and Saint Etienne.
◾️And when they all played 4 for half an hour with Real Madrid, in the group stage, PSG came back from 0: 2 and dropped a point.
▫️Dortmund (3-4-3): Burki – Piszczek, Akanji, Hummels – Hakimi, Can, Witsel, Warrior – Sancho, Haland, Hazard
▫️PSG (4-4-2): Navas – Meunier, Marquinhos, Silva, Bernat – Di Maria, Gueye, Verratti, Neymar – Icardi, Mbappe.
🔺Hakimi vs Neymar
▪️Achraf Hakimi is a good speed player, who understands very well with Dortmund’s attackers.
▪️He is always involved in the offensive phase.
▪️But now in front of Hakimi will be Neymar, and the Brazilian could take advantage of the offensive advantage of his opponent.
🔺Mbappe vs Dortmund’s central defenders
▪️The 3 defenders of Dortmund are not recognized for their speed of reaction.
▪️PSG could benefit from this if Tuchel opts for a 4-3-3 with Mbappe on the right flank and Neymar on the left.
🔺Silva vs Haland
▪️The Brazilian just came back after the accident.
▪️Will Thiago Silva be at the optimal level in order to stop the momentum of the young Haland? At least in the economy of the first round this duel I think will matter a lot.
▫️The last direct confrontations took place in 2010 in the Europa League.
▫️Both duels since then ended on a par, but it does not even count 0.01% in the double economy this spring.
Football Prediction of the Day Dortmund vs PSG
There are two groups that have shown an extraordinary offensive appetite lately.
If we start with Dortmund, we can see that she has scored five goals in four of the five games in the Bundesliga in 2020.
The hosts are excellent in attack after bringing in Haaland, the young Norwegian having already eight successes in only five championship games.
On the other side, PSG scored no less than 21 goals in the five official matches of February.
The Parisians begin to score in defense and in the last round of Ligue 1 they took four goals from Amiens.
Also, PSG’s last four games were GG 3+.
Therefore, the show seems to be guaranteed in this duel, which is why I bet on goals in both gates and at least three successes in the match.
Prediction Today: Both teams also score over 2.5 goals
