PSG Vs DOR Dream 11 Prediction: Riveting affair on our hands today with two free flowing, attacking units going at loggerheads.
When two of the most progressive sides in the football fraternity square off against each other today, we are going to be in for a ravishing encounter. Both these sides are revered for their ability to keep torching up the pitch and relentlessly pull off alluring attacking plays, something which was on display in abundance in the previous encounter between the two sides.
That tie was a testament to not only the formidable attacking brand of football which both these sides have revelled us in this year but PSG’s inadequacies and failures to compete on the world stage as well. For all their dominance in Ligue 1, the side has ended up faltering in the Champions League over the years with the elevated brand of compettion being too much for the side to deal with.
Defeat by Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the first round, PSG were fortuitous to come into today’s affair with something to hang onto. The goal they ended up scoring couldn’t have been any more fortunate in the manner and circumstances it came about in, giving the side something to play on as they look to overhaul the deficit staring them in the face.
Failing to have registered a cleansheet in their last 7 ties in their own stadium and up infront of a lethal and relentless Borussia Dortmund outfit, PSG should ext another Champions League campaign at an early stage. Their defensive vulnerabilities will be the making of their unravelling today, a tie which Borussia Dortmund win to make it into the ensuing round.

Dream 11 Picks
In a side which has not tasted success in this competition, Keylor Navas’ stature increase multifold. The goal-keeper has had the pleasured of lifting the coveted trophy with Real Madrid on occasions aplenty and come today’s affair, his acumen on that and the goal-keeping front will see him be tasked to lead his side’s charge.
Although a cleansheet looks extremely unlikely for either side today, we are still moving in with Achraf Hakimi from Borussia Dortmund for this one. We decided to shelve out a staggering amount on his services courtesy of the colossal 3 goals and 10 assists he’s provided to his side this term, numbers which allude towards his affinity for coming up with a goal contribution.
Dan-Axel Zagadou comes in as well from the outfit with the side looking the likelier of the two units to implement a cleansheet of the day while from PSG it’s the lone pick of Marquinhos.
With 5 goals and 5 assists this term including an assist when these two sides last met each other, we begin with the selection of Raphaël Guerrerio from Borussia Dortmund. The four goals sees us move in for Witsel as well from the visiting unit along with Can as we opt for a trio of selections from the team for the upcoming fixture.
From PSG meanwhile, with the 8 goals and 14 assists, Angel Di Maria will be our singular pick from the side for the day.
After scoring twice when these two sides last met each other in February, Erling Haaland has shown why he’s made a name for himself in no time at all in the footballing arena. It weren’t just the goals but the manner in which he scored those which saw the world stand up and appreciate his footballing knowhow, a display which saw him be heralded with accolades.
The 9 goals for his make the side’s striker our first pick while from PSG we are moving in for their leading goal scorer, Kylian Mbappe with the 18 goals and 5 assists our first selection along with Neymar who has the 13 goals and 6 assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
As PSG try to overturn the deficit, the game will open up for Borussia Dortmund to see us make Haaland our captain while Mbappe is our vice-captain.
