PSG vs Dortmund Match Information

  • Game: Paris Saint-Germain (5-2-4) vs Dortmund (6-3-2)
  • Location: Parc des Princes, Paris, France
  • Day/Time: Tuesday, May 7, 3 p.m. ET
  • PSG vs Dortmund Live Stream: Fubo.tv

 

The French champions are 90 minutes away from familiar European heartbreak owing to last week’s 1-0 reverse at Signal Iduna Park, where one of Dortmund’s icons –Marco Reus– played a Champions League home game for BVB for the very last time.

Dortmund proudly boasts the label of defensive masters in this season’s European Cup; a fifth shutout in last week’s slender success represents the highest tally of any team in the tournament.

A seven-game run without a clean sheet in all competitions will not do PSG any favors in that regard – nor will winning just three of their last eight matches at the Parc des Princes.

The French giants are the betting favorites at -215 odds to win the match. You can stream the game on FuboTV this Tuesday, May 7, at 3 p.m. ET.

PSG vs Dortmund Betting Tips

  • Since failing to score against Lorient in its first home match of the season, PSG has netted at least once in the 24 games at the Parc des Princes.
  • Dortmund is unbeaten in their last two matches against the Parisians, winning 1-0 in the first leg and drawing 1-1 during the group stages.
  • No player has scored more Champions League goals than Kylian Mbappe’s eight this season.
  • Borussia Dortmund has lost just one of their last 10 Champions League matches
  • PSG is without a clean sheet in their last seven games in all competitions.
  • PSG has won only three of their last seven assignments.
  • Niclas Fullkrug has scored three times in this season’s Champions League.

 

PSG’s Home Fortress Awaits Dortmund’s UCL Final Dream

Borussia Dortmund’s situation is very simple: avoid defeat against PSG at Parc des Princes on Tuesday and they are through to the Champions League final.

Dortmund established a 1-0 lead in the first leg at Signal Iduna Park last Wednesday with a smart finish from Niclas Fullkrug making the difference between the sides.

Edin Terzic’s troops defended pretty well in that game, although they were aided by some wastefulness in the final third from PSG.

The Ligue 1 giants have since been given a break domestically, whereas the Germans kept themselves warm with a 5-1 hammering of Augsburg last weekend.

Dortmund’s big hitters are well-rested too, though, and the added motivation of giving Reus the parting gift of a Champions League medal around his neck is a powerful one.

The intimidating Parc des Princes atmosphere should play its part in a nail-biting shootout, where we believe PSG should have the necessary weapons to overcome the first-leg defeat and qualify further in the competitions. We will include them in our soccer picks and parlays.

 

Betting Value in Paris: Why Both Teams to Score Is a Lock for PSG vs BVB

Luis Enrique’s troops have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven contests across all competitions, failing to keep out Clermont Foot, Barcelona, Lyon, Lorient, Le Havre, and Dortmund as part of that run.

And the news that Lucas Hernandez is out with an ACL injury, ruling him out until 2025, will do PSG no favors at the back.

They have their own player they will be looking to give the right send-off, Kylian Mbappe is set to play his last European clash at Parc des Princes, but things may not go according to plan.

Since losing their opening match in the competition against PSG, Dortmund has lost just one of their last 10 games in this season’s Champions League and we expect them to find the back of the net.

If you’re looking for a great value bet, a combo between both teams to score & at least three goals in the games is priced at -120 according to the latest soccer odds.

 

Money Well Spent: Niclas Fullkrug to Score vs. PSG

The net should bulge at both ends, so 2-1 looks like a decent correct score pick, while Fullkrug could again be a decent bet to score.

The forward has rediscovered his form recently and is amazing on aerial balls, meaning he could pop up with a goal from set pieces in an entertaining second leg. He is priced at +350 to contribute to the scoresheet.
