Tomorrow there will be an unusual calm at the “Parc des Princes,” with PSG having to comeback without fan support after a 2-1 defeat in the first leg. The reason is apparent – the threat of coronavirus.
The Germans won 2: 1 in the first match of these teams on “Signal Iduna Park.” Haaland scored his debut goal in the Champions League with a Dortmund T-shirt, but Neymar also scored and equalized. However, the Norwegian did not stop and was able to score a brace, and Borussia now has a little advantage.
Ander Herrera cannot play against Borussia Dortmund due to injury. Thomas Meunier and Marco Verratti are disqualified. It is unlikely that Dagba and Mbappe will play. Dortmund will not have Thomas Delaney and team leader Marco Reus, both injured.
Both coaches feel positive
Thomas Tuchel (PSG coach): “It is 2-1 after the first half, and we are ahead of the second half. We have every chance to win this duel. Thiago Silva will definitely play for Dortmund, and this will give Marquinhos a chance to change positions. Now the main thing is to plan everything correctly. ”
Lucien Favre (Dortmund coach): “Anything can happen, including that we win in Paris. I had to win the first game with a bigger difference. We had a chance of that. We played well in Dortmund. Then we looked great in the game against Gladbach as well. So we’ll do it in Paris too.”
