Paris Saint-Germain vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction and Betting Preview, 11 Mar 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
Paris Saint-Germain are aiming to overturn a 2-1 deficit when they welcome Borussia Dortmund to the Parc des Princes for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Round of 16
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris)
Due to the spread of the coronavirus across Europe, it was announced on Monday that this game will now be played behind closed doors.

Borussia Dortmund have a 2-1 lead to protect when they travel to France to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.

The German side warmed up for the trip with a 2-1 win at fellow Bundesliga hopefuls Borussia Mönchengladbach at the weekend and will be confident of securing safe passage to the quarter finals on Wednesday.

PSG come into the game with fresher legs, as their Ligue 1 game against Strasbourg was postponed due to concerns over the coronavirus outbreak in France, which has resulted in Wednesday's game being played behind closed doors. A 1-0 win would be enough to send them through, having already scored an away goal.

Paris Saint-Germain vs Borussia Dortmund Team News

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel came in for a lot of criticism following his side's defeat at the Westfalenstadion after opting to use a three-man defence.
Whether it was down to the tactics or certain players having an off day, Tuchel's men once again failed to transfer their impressive domestic form onto the European stage.

The French champions have been eliminated at this stage of the competition in each of the last three seasons and how have a big task on their hands if they are to stop the rot.

Never before have PSG successfully overturned a first-leg deficit in a Champions League knockout match, going out to AC Milan in 1995, Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid in 2018.

Unsurprisingly, Tuchel's side have won all three domestic games since tasting defeat in Germany, scoring 13 goals across those Ligue 1 and Coupe de France matches.

A domestic treble remains a real possibility, but as ever it is the Champions League that will define whether this season is a success for Tuchel, whose job may depend on Wednesday's result.

Dortmund have also won every match since the sides last met, including a 2-1 victory at Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday to remain within four points of Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.

In fact, BVB enter this match on a five match winning run in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in three of those games.
The ability to keep out the opposition could prove the crucial factor in Wednesday's clash at the Parc des Princes, with PSG boasting an away goal thanks to Neymar's tap-in three weeks ago.

Dortmund have progressed to the next stage of the Champions League on all four occasions in which they won the first leg of a knockout match. Only Juventus, who have done so 11 times out of 11, boast a better 100%-progression-rate.

However, the German side have lost each of their last five away Champions League knockout matches since a 4-2 win at Zenit St Petersburg in February 2014.

They have failed to get beyond the last-16 stage since 2017, meanwhile, when losing to surprise package Monaco in the quarters.
Both sides therefore have a point to prove in this finely-poised return fixture in the French capital, knowing that elimination will lead to some familiar questions being asked.
