Venue: Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund).
PSG will take an impressive Champions League group stage record into the first leg of their last 16 tie away at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday 18th Feb 2020.
They won five games and drew once to finish top of Group A ahead of Real Madrid last autumn.
Now the French Ligue1 leaders will return to full strength after fielding a rotated side in a remarkable 4-4 draw away against 19th-placed Amiens last Saturday.
Surprisingly, Borussia Dortmund’s home record in the Champions League isn’t as formidable as one might expect. The German side have won just four of their last 11 matches at the Westfalenstadion in this competition including some disappointing draws against APOEL Nicosia and Club Brugge.
This is a huge season in the Champions League for Paris Saint-Germain. This is the competition that the club’s owners really want to win but they’ve been so disappointing in recent years. They’ve lost all three of their last Round of 16 ties and fell at the following hurdle – the quarters – in the three seasons before that.
