Another semifinal match will see Borussia Dortmund and PSG fighting for the last step before the UEFA Champions League trophy. For Borussia, this could be the first Champions League final since 2012, while PSG has reached this stage in 2020. The teams have already met in the group stage, with PSG securing a relatively easy home win (2-0) and a draw (0-0) at Signal Iduna Park. The teams do not have a rich history of head-to-head matches, but at the same time PSG approaches the upcoming clash as a favourite, with only 1 loss in 6 matches.

Borussia Dortmund vs PSG Preview 

Borussia Dortmund Preview

Borussia Dortmund have been a different team in the Champions League compared to their Bundesliga form this season. On the Champions League level, Borussia does not lose at Signal Iduna Park for 10 consecutive matches. At the same time, the team is plagued with poor Bundesliga form, losing to RB Leipzig during the weekend game. It was evident that Edin Terzic and the players were thinking about the clash with PSG but Dortmund’s bet on their Champions League campaign can turn out to be a void gamble, given that Borussia is on the verge of losing their Champions League spot for the next season. Moreover, it is unclear whether Mats Hummels will be ready for the match, given that he left the pitch with an injury. This can seriously affect the defence of the German team and give more advantage to PSG, with Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele knowing the best way to navigate the vulnerabilities of such teams.

PSG Preview 

Paris Saint-Germain have been in excellent form recently, winning their last five away matches in all competitions. Moreover, the last two away matches have ended with the same score - 4-1. In the weekend, PSG secured another Ligue 1 title, with all the team’s forces currently concentrated on getting into the final of the Champions League. Luis Enrique seriously aims to bring PSG back to Champions League finals for the first time since 2020, when the team lost to Bayern Munich (0-1). Given that all the key players are fit for the upcoming match, PSG will have all the chances to pass through troubled Borussia.

Betting Tips for Borussia Dortmund vs PSG

PSG Draw No Bet

While it is hard to overestimate the run of Borussia, the team had its lucky moments in the matches against Atletico and even in the matches against PSV. PSG, on the other hand, looks more classy in the current situation, having a more resilient and versatile line-up eager to qualify to another finale. Despite the evident fact that Borussia saved its strength for the Champions League in the weekend match against RB Leipzig (4-1), the ease of conceded goals should be quite worrying for Edin Terzic. Unibet gives 1.78 for this Borussia Dortmund vs. PSG prediction. 

Total Goals Borussia Dortmund Under 1.5

Luis Enrique emphasised several times that the team should be more consistent in the defensive build-up. Indeed, if not for individual mistakes and loss of concentration, Barcelona wouldn’t have scored 4 goals in 2 matches. Given that the finale will see either Real Madrid or Bayern, the teams who score goals from nowhere, these semifinals should test PSG’s ability to show consistent display in the defence. Borussia Dortmund vs. PSG odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.81.

Kylian Mbappe To Score at Any Time 

Despite not showing his best against Barcelona, Kylian managed to step up and score two goals that cemented PSG’s dominance against the 10-men Barcelona. In the match against Dortmund, the French will have way more chances given the inconsistency in the defensive records of Borussia. As current best goalscorer of the tournament with 8 goals, finishing his journey at Paris with both team and individual trophy is most likely his main goal after securing the Ligue 1 title. For this Borussia Dortmund vs PSG tip, Unibet gives 1.75.
