3 Way - Paris Saint-Germain 37/100

The first leg didn't go according to Plan for the French Champions. Players like Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele did not affect the match in ways that PSG fans would have expected. PSG dominated possession slightly with 57% ball possession over the 90 minutes played. They had 14 shots at goal, one more than Dortmund. They created 4 big chances, that is one less than Dortmund. Looking at the stats from the first leg, there wasn't much to defrintiate the two sides. especially when considering that they created a similar amount of chances at goal.

Although the first leg failed to produce plenty of goals, one this was evident from the first whistle to the last. Both sides are familiar with each other and the coaching staff from both camps is laser focused on getting the result. Key players, like the two I mention above, were marked out of the game. on some occasions they were completely isolated to the wings, with no room to cut inside and affect the results in a positive manner. If it wasn't for that sublime moment of brilliance we would be talking about a 0-0 result in Germany and a different reflection on the first leg.

What seals the prediction for this fixture is that PSG has never lost to Dortmund in Paris. They have met three times in the past, with two matches being played in the UEFA Champions League. Both those meetings ended in a 2-0 win for PSG, the first coming in 2020 and the second coming in 2023, in the group stages of this season's UEFA Champions League.
