The upcoming clash between Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Borussia Dortmund promises to be a thrilling Champions League semi-final battle filled with high stakes, star players, and intriguing statistics.

PSG, led by manager Luis Enrique, is on a mission to secure their spot in the final and fulfill the aspirations of their owners, Qatar Sports Investment.

Despite claiming the Ligue 1 title, PSG’s Champions League journey hangs in the balance as they trail Dortmund 1-0 from the first leg.

Key to PSG’s hopes is their talisman Kylian Mbappé, who boasts an impressive record of 32 direct goal involvements in 31 home Champions League games.

Mbappé’s attacking prowess will be crucial as PSG aims to overcome Dortmund’s resilient defense.

On the other side, Dortmund, coached by Edin Terzić, enters the match with confidence following a convincing 5-1 victory over Augsburg.

Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, with his exceptional dribbling skills and creativity, poses a significant threat to PSG’s defense.

Historically, PSG has the upper hand with four victories in their eight encounters with Dortmund. However, all previous wins in this fixture have been by the home team, giving PSG an advantage as they play at Parc des Princes.

Despite PSG’s attacking firepower, they have faced challenges this season, trailing on the scoreboard for more minutes than leading in the Champions League.

Dortmund, on the other hand, has been fortunate defensively, boasting the largest difference between goals conceded and expected goals against in the competition.

As both teams gear up for this crucial semi-final clash, the stage is set for an intense battle where every statistic, player performance, and tactical move will play a vital role in determining who advances to the final.
