Nice had 14 shots on goal with 8 on target. Terem Moffi (21', 68') and Gaëtan Laborde (53') scored for Nice.
It’s been seldom in recent games where Paris Saint-Germain have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Paris Saint-Germain have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 9 goals on the way.
Borussia Dortmund will come into the encounter after a 2-4 Bundesliga 1 win to defeat Freiburg in their last fixture.
In that match, Borussia Dortmund managed 50% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 7 of them on target. For Borussia Dortmund, the goals were scored by Mats Hummels (11', 88'), Donyell Malen (60') and Marco Reus (92'). Freiburg had 15 shots on goal with 4 on target. Lucas Höler (44') and Nicolas Höfler (45') scored for Freiburg.

Team News: PSG
Nuno Mendes (Hamstring Injury), Sergio Rico (Brain haemorrhage) and Ousmane Dembélé (Hamstring Injury) won’t be playing for PSG manager Luis Enrique.
It seems likely that Les Rouge-et-Bleu will probably employ a 4-3-3 formation for this game, utilising Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Milan Skriniar, Lucas Hernandez, Warren Zaire-Emery, Manuel Ugarte, Vitinha, Ousmane Dembele, Randal Kolo Muani and Kylian Mbappe.
Team News: Borussia Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund boss Edin Terzić has to choose a team with limited availability. Thomas Meunier (Muscle Injury) and Mateu Morey (Knee Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
It’s our belief that Dortmund will likely elect for a 3-4-3 formation, starting Gregor Kobel, Niklas Suele, Mats Hummels, Nico Schlotterbeck, Marius Wolf, Marcel Sabitzer, Emre Can, Julian Brandt, Julian Ryerson, Donyell Malen and Karim Adeyemi.
For this match, we think that Paris Saint-Germain are likely to dominate possession and create several successful chances.
However, Borussia Dortmund won’t find it easy to make a breakthrough although we do see them pulling one back during this clash, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a comfortable 3-1 margin for Paris Saint-Germain at the conclusion of the game.
