🏆 PSG vs Dortmund: Match preview & predicted XIs with fireworks expected in Paris

PSG's Champions League last-16 second leg match against Borussia Dortmund will be played behind closed doors because of coronavirus.

We still expect an entertaining clash, with the Parisian side aiming to claw back a 2-1 deficit after defeat in Germany a fortnight ago.

☄️ Predicted PSG XI (4-4-2)

Navas; Kehrer, Marquinhos, Kimpembe; Herrera, Gueye, Paredes, Bernat; Di María; Neymar, Mbappé

Thomas Tuchel will persist with a three at the back, especially considering that both Thomas Meunier and Marco Verratti will miss the match through suspension. Versatile German defender Thilo Kehrer could come in for Meunier to occupy a right wingback slot, and Juan Bernat could come in for Layvin Kurzawa on the other flank. Argentine playmaker Leandro Paredes and Ander Herrera will fight it out for the vacancy in midfield left by the suspended Verratti. Skipper Thiago Silva is injured, so there could be a reshuffle at the back. 

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel said, "It's another strange situation because we're playing without our spectators."

"In a match of this importance, they are very important to create a special atmosphere, tension, pressure on our opponent. With what's happening between coronavirus and Kylian Mbappe's illness, we have to adapt and think.

"Kylian has a sore throat and we'll see if he can train a bit on Tuesday evening, but he hasn't been with us for two days. We'll wait and see and decide on Wednesday morning."

🐝 Predicted BVB XI (3-5-2)

Bürki; Piszczek, Hummels, Zagadou; Hakimi, Can, Witsel, Guerreiro; Sancho, Håland, Hazard

Experienced duo Marco Reus and Thomas Delaney will miss out for the visitors after also not featuring in the first leg. Prolific teenagers Erling Håland and Jadon Sancho will lead the BVB attack alongside Eden Hazard's brother Thorgan. 

Even though the stadium will be empty, tension and entertainment is guaranteed as PSG's lethal attack looks to get on the front foot from the start and get back into the tie.
