In Wednesday’s rematch with Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain looks to make up for lost opportunities in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal.

The French champions are ninety minutes away from a very familiar kind of agony in Europe as a result of last week’s 1-0 loss at Signal Iduna Park, where one of Dortmund’s legends played his final Champions League home match for BVB.

Former Dortmund attacker Ousmane Dembele in particular had a nightmare match against his old team as PSG wasted numerous opportunities in the first leg. BVB talisman Niclas Fullkrug gave Luis Enrique’s team a lesson in merciless attacking.

After thirty-six minutes, the German international scored his third goal in the 2023–24 Champions League. It’s his first season of the European Cup.

Thanks to PSG’s incompetence, Dortmund also recorded their fifth clean sheet of the Champions League season.

2023/24 season story

Although PSG has already won the top division once more, they were at least fortunate to have a weekend off from Ligue 1 affairs in advance of Tuesday’s exciting second leg.

Les Parisiens’ Champions League campaign has always been characterized by “close but no cigar,” but Enrique’s team has already overcome a first-leg deficit against Barcelona in the quarterfinals.

They now have a chance to become the first team in the tournament’s history to advance to the final after losing their first two quarterfinal and semifinal matches.

Not winning just three of their last eight games at the Parc des Princes, nor a run of seven games without a clean sheet in all competitions, will help PSG in that regard, but Enrique’s team hasn’t failed to score at home since the first weekend of the 2023–24 Ligue 1 season.

In an attempt to end PSG’s record-breaking 24-game scoring run at the Parc des Princes and advance to an unexpected Champions League final, Dortmund is the team that has been dubbed the defensive maestros of this season’s European Cup.
