50' PSG 0-1 Dortmund (0-2 agg.) PSG, psg vs dortmund


50' PSG 0-1 Dortmund (0-2 agg.)

Hummels heads home after Brandt's lovely delivery from a corner and Dortmund have doubled their aggregate lead!

47' PSG 0-0 Dortmund (0-1 agg.)

PSG have started the half brightly. Hakimi whips a ball across the face of goal that forces an awkward clearance.

On the ensuing corner, the ball comes to Zaire-Emery at the back post and he looks sure to score, but hits the post from point-blank range!

47' PSG 0-0 Dortmund (0-1 agg.)

Dortmund will be well aware of the fact that PSG have only failed to score in one of their 25 home games in all competitions this season — that was on Ligue 1 matchday one against Lorient, so they’re on a run of 24 games since.

Dortmund look as likely to score as PSG, particularly with those vertical counter-attacks, and while Fabian Ruiz’s rotation from central midfield out to wide left offers some cover against Sancho if PSG lose it out wide, it does leave them a player short in midfield and means Dortmund can go straight into Fullkrug more easily.

46' PSG 0-0 Dortmund (0-1 agg.)

We're back underway in Paris!

That was PSG’s most crosses (15) in the first-half of a UCL knockout game since they played Manchester City in May 2021 (16).

Dortmund’s compact central shape has forced them out wide, Dembele particularly has been erratic in his delivery and PSG have struggled for a box presence, despite opting for a pure No 9 in Goncalo Ramos.

Add that to the catalogue of underwhelming PSG first halves at home in Europe this season, especially in the knockout rounds.

They’ve scored 10 and only conceded three in the first 15 minutes after half-time, their best period of the game (and Dortmund’s worst, coincidentally).

There has not yet been a PSG knockout game in this Champions League knockout campaign that Vitinha has not starred in.

The 24-year-old has arguably been the competition's stand-out player and that has continued in today's first half.

Whether it is making his way through a crowd of opponents with the ball at his feet, threading a killer pass into the penalty area or winning the ball back — his performance has had the lot in the first half.

If PSG are to advance in the second half, Vitinha will have to continue in his starring role.

I've enjoyed watching Schlotterbeck so far. Right place, right time defensively and played some lovely passes with that left foot.

In terms of playing out, it makes such a difference having a natural left-footer on the left – passing angles, trajectory of the ball when feeding the left-back etc. He’s also got that ability to play a clever disguised ball into Fullkrug.

Dortmund’s half. They will be delighted with their performance and the way the tie is going. They have given little away, and had the best chance too, forcing a huge save from Donnarumma.

PSG slow and not stretching the back line on the ball, then lacking quality around the box. They are vulnerable on the break too, and it still feels like they haven’t got their pressing structure right. Dortmund able to go direct to Fullkrug, or switch left to right for Sancho to run at Nuno Mendes.

The visitors are well placed, PSG need some solutions.

A sole minute of stoppage time passes and we hit the break scoreless.

Dortmund are headed to the final as things stand!

45' PSG 0-0 Dortmund (0-1 agg.)

Dortmund have a chance to clear the ball and end a PSG attack but give it away cheaply right in front of their box.

The visitors swing the ball around the box via Vitinha, but their ensuing shot is deflected off of Schlotterbeck.

40' PSG 0-0 Dortmund (0-1 agg.)

Fullkrug makes a great play to lay the ball off and allow Dortmund to mount a foray forward, but the move breaks down when Ryerson's ball into the box for Sabitzer is too close to Donnarumma.

37' PSG 0-0 Dortmund (0-1 agg.)

Jadon Sancho seems so important to BVB's self belief. The little moments when he shows touches of expression help to provide relief defensively, but also show the opportunity down the right side. PSG are there to be got at.

36' PSG 0-0 Dortmund (0-1 agg.)

That kind of save from Donnarumma, denying Adeyemi, has happened frequently throughout this season. When PSG are exposed, he has stepped in to keep his side in the game. A big moment potentially there.

35' PSG 0-0 Dortmund (0-1 agg.)

The hosts are queueing up in the Dortmund box, passing the ball around brilliantly, but the end product isn't there as the attack fizzles.
