Predictions and Tips
- Over Under Pick: The Total Will Go Over 2.5
- Computer Predicted Score: 3-1
- Both Teams to Score: Yes
Paris Saint-Germain F.C.
The Paris club needs to win in regular time by two or more goals. The home team will also have a 1-0 advantage. The main advantage of the home team, which won the Champions League three last home games, is the presence of forward Kilian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi. Both played six games in the current tournament campaign and scored five goals each.
The PSG is in a great mood for the match against the Germans. On March 4, in the semifinals of the Cup of France, the capital team defeated Lyon with a score of 1-5. A few days after the cup match Tuchel’s players were to play in League 1 against Strasbourg, but the match was postponed. This means that the players had an additional opportunity to recover before the important match in the Champions League.
The Red and Blue are in great shape now. After they lost to Borussia, they won 3 games (over Bordeaux, Dijon and Lyon). In these 3 games Mbappe and Co scored 13 goals.
At the group stage of the Champions League of PSG in 3 games on his field won 3 victories. He scored 9 goals and conceded 0. But here we must understand that only 1 opponent was strong – Real. We also had to meet with much weaker Brugge and Galatasaray.
Meunier, Verratti and Herrera won’t play against the Germans because of their injuries. Dagba, Mbappe and Thiago Silva are still in question.
Possible starting lineup: Navas – Kehrer, Silva (c), Kimpembe, Kurzawa – Di Maria, Marquinhos, Gueye, Neymar – Cavani, Icardi
For the overall success of Borussia, it’s enough for the opponents not to give up. And even if the club from Dortmund concedes in one goal to the opponent, such a gap will not be critical. If there is a repeat of the result of the first match, but already in favor of PSG, then the referee will appoint extra time. The visitors have an important advantage over their opponent: Borussia coach Lucien Favre as a steering team opposed Thomas Tuchel’s vis-a-vis 10 times. And in these matches the Swiss specialist did not lose to his opponent by the end of 7 games (with six victories – one world).
We can not say that in the first match Borussia looked much stronger than PSG. In general, the meeting was equal. It’s just that night the Black and Yellows had the fairy Erling Haaland, who made the double.
Like the Parisians, the Dortmunds, too, on the background of the victory approach the return game of 1/8 UEFA Champions League. In the final round of the domestic championship they beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 1-2 away. On the whole, the team won 5 previous games. The last loss comes at the beginning of last month, when the Bundesliga lost to Bayer 4-3 in the next round.
In the second round of this season, in all tournaments Borussia has already played 10 matches. In total, 31 goals were scored in them. The average performance is 3 goals in 90 minutes.
As for the team’s performances in the current BC away games. In 3 games 2 defeats were recorded (from Barcelona – 3:1 and Inter – 2:0), with one victoria (over Sparta – 0:2).
Delaney and Reus are not ready to appear on the field yet.
Possible starting lineup: Bürki – Piszczek (c), Hummels, Zagadou – Hakimi, Can, Witsel, Guerreiro – Sancho, Brandt – Haaland
PSG vs Borussia Prediction
The first match turned out to be very effective. We believe that the second match can be even more interesting. Parisians must score. Most likely, they will do it, because the defense of Dortmund is far from being in their optimal condition.
When the red and blue score, Dortmund will have to score too. As a result, the match can turn into a game without the center of the field. It is clear that in the 1/8 finals it is hardly worth waiting for 6 or 7 goals (for two), but we would assume that we could see 4 successful shots.
