Borussia Dortmund – PSG: probable line-ups


By: Manu Tournoux

PSG is playing a huge part of its season this evening, on the pitch at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund. Faced with an already qualified German team, Luis Enrique’s troops must win, they who are two points ahead of third and fourth, Newcastle and AC Milan, who will face each other at the same time and who are seeking this second place. In the event of a Paris defeat or a draw, and a victory for the Magpies against the Milanese, Paris Saint-Germain would, for example, be eliminated.

No room for error therefore, for this PSG which still depends solely on itself to reach the next round, and which could also pass in the event of a bad result and a draw in the other match. A situation far from critical therefore, especially since Borussia Dortmund is already qualified and is in a bit of trouble at the moment, having not won any of its last three meetings in all competitions. The Jaune-et-Noir also had a fairly average season in the league, with fifth place in the Bundesliga, and great generosity in defense.

Luis Enrique needs to tinker a little

For this duel, Edin Terzic can count on a great team, with Kobel in the cages. He will be protected by Bensebaïni, Schlotterbeck, the veteran Hummels as well as Süle. In the midfield, we will find a duo composed of Ozcan and Sabitzer, with Reus in a slightly more advanced role. In the offensive sector, place for Bynoe-Giuttens, Brandt and Füllkrug, the offensive reference of the Ruhr club.

For his part, Luis Enrique is a little more handicapped by physical problems, which will deprive him of Nuno Mendes, Fabian Ruiz and Kimpembe, in addition to Ousmane Dembélé, suspended against his former club. Donnarumma will start in goal, with Hakimi, Marquinhos, Danilo and Lucas Hernandez in front of him. The midfielder will be entrusted to Ugarte, Vitinha and Warren Zaire-Emery, finally fully recovered from his injury. Up front, the Spaniard should rely on the duo Barcola and Kang-In Lee to support Mbappé.
