Borussia Dortmund v Paris Saint-Germain: Match Preview


Paris Saint-Germain continue their hunt for a first Champions League trophy as they face Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the semi-finals.

The two sides meet again after being in the same group earlier on in the competition.

The group games between the two saw PSG win at home and a 1-1 draw away at Dortmund.

Luis Enrique and his side head into the fixture as favourites; however, they have never won an away match against Dortmund.

Edin Terzic and his Dortmund side may be the underdogs in the tie, but they are unbeaten in their last 10 Champions League home games, their longest-ever run in the competition.

Match details

After being crowned Ligue 1 champions for the 12th time on Sunday, PSG will want to go one step further and secure their very first Champions League trophy.

The French side will be hoping to secure a result to take back to Paris in the second leg of the tie next week.

Out to stop them is a Dortmund side looking to make their first final since 2020. They will have the backing of the iconic Yellow Wall of home support in this fixture, with the Signal Iduna Park being a notoriously hard place to come and get a result.

However, the German side are coming off of the back of a 4-1 defeat on the weekend against RB Leipzig.

It is all to play for in Germany. Catch all of the action live on Wednesday, 1st May 2024, on TNT Sports 1 from 7 p.m. and via the Discovery+ app or website.
