UEFA Champions League: Can Borussia Dortmund get the better of PSG?

Borussia Dortmund will hope to pick up a first leg advantage when PSG visit Signal Iduna Park. 

The German side got the better of Atletico Madrid in the quarter finals, winning 5-4 on aggregate to progress to their fourth UCL semi final. They haven’t had the best of campaigns, however, lying fifth in the Bundesliga and coming into this on the back of a 4-1 defeat to RB Leipzig at the weekend.

 Champions League football next season is starting to look unlikely, as they are five points behind fourth placed Leipzig, unless they go on to lift the trophy, which is a tall order. PSG capitalized on an early Ronald Araujo red card to breeze past Barcelona 4-1 in their second leg tie, and 6-4 on aggregate.

The French side had gone behind thanks to Raphinia’s opener, but Araujo’s dismissal sparked Les Parisiens to life, with Kylian Mbappe netting a brace in addition to goals from Vitinha and Ousmane Dembele. They have never won away from home against Dortmund in the Champions League, and with Die Borussen unbeaten in their last 10 Champions League home games, Luis Enrique will have much to ponder.
