Winning the Champions League is PSG’s biggest dream
Winning the Champions League is PSG’s biggest dream and on Tuesday the French champion once again enters the knockout phase of the competition. Thomas Tuchel’s team will visit Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park in a first 1/8-finals game between these two teams. Let’s talk about it in our Champions League predictions.
PSG were almost flawless in their group, winning it with a record of five wins and one draw. They bettered the most successful club in the history of the tournament Real Madrid, but the knockout phase is something completely different and they know it pretty well already.
Every season so far PSG does well in the group stage, but suffered a defeat when the eliminations started. The club dominated the Ligue 1 with an ease, but conquering Europe is a much more complicated challenge.
Neymar is healthy again and it’s great news for the manager Thomas Tuchel. In the same time the attacking partnerniship between Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi is getting better and better, while Angel Di Maria remains an influental member of the team as well. Thomas Tuchel has all he needs in order to win the Champions League, but now it’s up to him to make this team click and work in a flawless way on the pitch.
Borussia Dortmund dream for a first appearance at the Champions League final since 2013. The team plays well under the management of Lucien Favre and fights for the Bundesliga title this season, which is giving the fans some hope before the two games against PSG.
On Tuesday we expect to see Dortmund’s new shiny weapon Erling Haland starting in attack. The 19-years Norwegian wonderkid started with a bang his career in Germany, scoring 9 goals in his first 6 games for Der Borussen.
In our Champions League predictions we believe that PSG are favourites in this tie against Borussia Dortmund, but they would enjoy even a strategic draw in the first leg on German soil. One thing is for sure – we expect goals here.
