Borussia Dortmund vs PSV Eindhoven: Preview and Prediction

Borussia Dortmund and PSV Eindhoven will meet in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 on Wednesday, with the tie finely poised after a 1-1 draw in the first leg.

Dortmund will be looking to take advantage of their home advantage and progress to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2020/21. However, they will need to be wary of PSV, who have been in excellent form this season, both domestically and in Europe.

Dortmund have not lost a home game in the Champions League in two seasons, but they have drawn their last two home games in the competition, against PSG and AC Milan. This suggests that they will need to be at their best to beat PSV.

PSV, meanwhile, have only lost two games in all competitions this season, and they will be confident of their chances of causing an upset at Signal Iduna Park.

The Dutch side have a good recent record of scoring goals on the road, and they will be hoping that their in-form striker Luuk de Jong can continue his goalscoring exploits in the Champions League.

The tie is finely poised, and it is all to play for in the second leg.

Players to watch:

Donyell Malen (Dortmund): The Dutch forward has scored in four consecutive games for Dortmund, and he will be a key threat for the home side.
Luuk de Jong (PSV): The PSV striker has scored 31 goals this season, including three in the Champions League. He will be the main dangerman for the visitors.

Hot stat:

Both teams have scored in nine of PSV’s 11 European games this season. This suggests that we could be in for a high-scoring second leg.

Prediction

Borussia Dortmund are the favorites to win the match and progress to the quarter-finals. However, PSV Eindhoven are a dangerous team and they will be confident of causing an upset. I predict a 2-1 win for Borussia Dortmund.

Both teams have scored in nine of PSV Eindhoven’s 11 European matches this season.
