UEFA Champions League | Borussia Dortmund VS Paris St-Germain; Thursday, 02 May at 03:00 GMT +8

Dortmund has secured a spot in the Champions League’s final four for the first time since their runner-up finish in the 2012-2013 season under Jurgen Klopp’s guidance. However, they have not yet hit their stride, falling short of victory in back-to-back top-flight fixtures. Despite being labeled as the “underdogs” in the last-four stage, Dortmund must not be underestimated, especially when playing in front of a passionate crowd of over 80,000 fans. Their head-to-head record against PSG is not promising, with only six victories in six meetings thus far. However, they have become French champions for a record 12th time, thanks to Olympique Lyon’s victory against PSG’s nearest pursuer Monaco. Les Parisians also brushed aside Spanish opposition in their third Champions League semifinal appearance, overcoming Barcelona 6-1 on aggregate. Both sides are expected to adopt a defensively cautious approach, potentially resulting in an unappealing first-leg stalemate. The meetings of these sides have been tight and not overly exciting, so it is understandable to opt for Under 2.5 in this one.

Borussia Dortmund manager Edin Terzić may use a 4-2-3-1 formation with Gregor Kobel, Julian Ryerson, Niklas Süle, Nico Schlotterbeck, Marius Wolf, Marcel Sabitzer, Emre Can, Karim Adeyemi, Julian Brandt, Jadon Sancho, and Niclas Füllkrug due to injury absences of Haller, Malen, Kamara, and Bensebaini.

PSG manager Luis Enrique has a limited squad due to injury absences of Sergio Rico and Presnel Kimpembe. Les Rouge-et-Bleu will likely use a 4-3-3 formation with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Lucas Beraldo, Nuno Mendes, Warren Zaïre-Emery, Vítinha, Fabian Ruiz, Ousmane Dembélé, Kylian Mbappe, and Bradley Barcola.
