Borussia Dortmund - Paris Saint-Germain: test in fire.
18/02/2020, 20.00 GMT
Feb 18 at 20.00 GMT, at the Signal Iduna Park stadium in Dortmund, the first meeting of the 1/8 finals of the UEFA Champions League between Borussia and PSG will begin. Despite the field factor, the French are listed as favorites by the couple, although we know very well that the “bumblebees” in their arena are able to beat anyone, including Parisians.
Borussia, a representative of unstable teams in Germany, Dortmund scores five goals in three games in a row, and then flies out of the Country Cup after losing to an outsider. After 22 rounds of the current Bundesliga season, BVB has 12 victories and 42 points, which is only three less than the first RB Leipzig today.
In terms of performance, the hosts even beat the traditional leader in goals scored - Bayern Munich and were able to score nearly three goals for their opponents on average per game - 63 goals, of which 13 were Sancho's and 11 were Royce's. Last Friday, the “Bumblebees” did not leave any chance for the Frankfurt Eintracht (4-0), and our prediction for this duel passed confidently.
In today's match, Thomas Delaney, Julian Brandt and one of the best snipers of the team - Marco Reus, who has muscle injury, will not be able to take part.

Parisians are cramped in the major league of France, where PSG have no equal, and the club’s misfires and failures are more likely due to laziness of players who were not set up for the next match in time.
Such a nuisance happened to the team on Saturday, when at the end of the first half the “red-blue” yielding by the end of the first half with a score of 0: 3, they managed not only to recoup, but to come forward. However, in the end they missed the counterattack from the underdog and completed another match of League 1 in draw (4: 4).
In the League Cup and the country at Les Parisians everything is in order, but if the guests in the League Cup are already in the final, then in the Cup of the country the main struggle is still ahead.
Of the unpleasant news for the capital team - injured players, the number of which is eight, and in the list you can see Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Colin Dagba and Abdou Diallo.
PSG is playing in the mood, and the extravaganza of goals in recent matches is most likely the merit of the main snipers who will miss the match today due to injury.
The hosts of the match have all the main performers in the ranks, and we can assume that they are quite capable of outplaying the defense of the guests, which missed from the obvious underdogs. We offer to play a bet in favor of the hosts
Our prediction is the victory of Borussia with the handicap (1 0)
