As Paris Saint-Germain prepares for their season-defining clash against Borussia Dortmund, all eyes are on their superstar attacker, Kylian Mbappe. The 25-year-old French forward has been in scintillating form this season, leading PSG's charge in domestic and European competitions.

Although Mbappe appears to be leaving PSG soon, the dangerous attacker is helping the club make one more UCL push before his exit. Mbappe has been instrumental in PSG's journey to the semi-finals, netting a brace against stubborn Barcelona and providing key assists along the way. 

His blistering pace, sublime technique, and clinical finishing abilities have made him a nightmare for opposing defenders to deal with. With PSG's long-standing quest for Champions League glory in sight, Mbappe will be looking to drag his team to the final and finally lift the coveted trophy.  

The 25-year-old has already proven himself on the biggest stage, having won the 2018 FIFA World Cup with France. However, this will be his opportunity to announce himself on the grandest stages of European club football. The question is, CAN he do it? 

Do you know you can bounce up your bankroll on this game? This game presents a significant chance for you to stake a successful bet. We have gathered crucial information to help you make an accurate prediction of this game.  



PSG have been in impressive form at the time of this publication, having played 50 matches this season in all competitions. The Parisiens have won 32, with 12 ending in a draw and losing 6. 

In Ligue 1, PSG's form has been excellent with 18 wins, 9 draws, and 1 loss. This performance currently places them 1st out of 18 teams in the Ligue 1 Table.  

Most recently, Kylian Mbappe, who is set to leave the club at the end of the season, scored twice in the 4-1 second-leg victory against Barcelona that qualified the Parisian for the semi-final. 

Mbappe, who is the highest goal scorer for PSG this season with 43 goals seems very daring and sets to achieve more landmarks as he urges his team-mates not to get carried away with past achievements. 

Following the victory at the Camp Nou, the 25-year-old forward expressed his pride in leading PSG to the semi-finals and reiterated his dream of winning the Champions League with the French capital side. Mbappe proudly stated: "I have the dream of winning the Champions League for Paris.”

Borussia Dortmund 

Dortmund's form can be seen as strong, but not quite exceptional, possibly due to Sebastian Haller, their top striker, being sidelined with an injury. 

Despite the absence of their top striker Sebastian Haller, Borussia Dortmund won their last 4 away matches and 5 out of their last 8 matches in the Bundesliga. Overall, they have 16 wins, 8 draws, and 5 losses in the league, placing them 5th in the table at this time.  

In a thrilling match, Dortmund overturned a 2-1 deficit to reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals for the first time since 2013 with a thrilling victory over Atlético de Madrid. Julian Brandt, Ian Maatsen, Niclas Füllkrug, and Marcel Sabitzer scored the crucial goals to send Edin Terzic’s side through to the semi-final. 


Verdict: Just by observing how PSG and Dortmund performed in the Champions League quarter-finals, they both turned their initial defeats in the first leg into impressive victories in the second leg. However, based on their overall performances this season, PSG appears to have the edge with more potential to win.  

Key Players


The 2018 World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe is the number one player fans will be eager to see on the pitch against Dortmund. The French man has netted 43 goals already with 9 assists this season and has vowed to score more crucial goals. 

Let's not forget PSG boasts other talented and dangerous players like Hakimi, Barclays, Mendes, Vitinha, and Dembele among others whose contributions have been instrumental to the team's success.

Borussia Dortmund 

Even with their injury crisis, Dortmund presents a strong offensive force with Niclas Fullkrug, Karim Adeyemi, Jadon Sancho, and Julian Brandt.  

These players have played a crucial role in Dortmund's recent victories, including impressive triumphs over Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid. 


Verdict: In this aspect, we give the advantage to PSG. The Parisiqens have Mbappe and Dembele, who are a cut above whatever Dortmund has to offer. Also, the potential absence of Dortmund's goal machine Sebastian Haller, tips the balance towards PSG.

Head To Head

Borussia Dortmund's recent record against Paris Saint Germain has been a struggle, with only one win in their past six meetings since 2010. Despite some close matches, PSG has come out on top twice, with the rest ending in draws. 

The fact that Borussia and PSG faced each other in the group stage of this current campaign of the UEFA Champions League is quite notable. 

PSG emerged victorious with a 2-0 victory in their encounter in France while they played a 1-1 draw in Germany.

Dortmund may have struggled in their recent performances, but their potential cannot be overlooked. With their attacking power, indomitable defence, and home advantage, they could surprise PSG and turn the tables in their favour. 

PSG, on the other hand, must not underestimate their opponents and remain focused if they desire to secure a positive result. 


Verdict: This aspect is quite evenly matched. Just one win gives the match an extra reason to be more exciting. 

PSG Vs Borussia Dortmund Possible Lineup

PSG: Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Hernandez, Mendes; Zaire-Emery, Vitinha, Ruiz; Dembele, Barcola, Mbappe.
