Goal Scorer:

The first-leg defeat also came at a considerable cost for Luis Enrique, who may not be able to select key defender Lucas Hernandez again until probably 2025. The French international may have suffered another knee ligament issue, which seems similar to the one he did during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

With Hernandez’s Euro chances done and dusted, Enrique will have a crucial selection decision ahead of the second leg. He does have the option of Milan Skriniar and Lucas Beraldo, with the latter likely to get the nod at the heart of the PSG defence alongside Marquinhos.

Nuno Mendes will take the left-back slot, with Achraf Hakimi well-placed on the right-hand side. Apart from Hernandez, Enrique does not have any fresh injury concerns apart from long-term absentees Presnel Kimpembe, Sergio Rico, and Layvin Kurzawa.

In the attack, Enrique might make slight tweaks, with Randal Kolo Muani the man likely to play up front, which would allow Kylian Mbappe to move on the left-hand side and replace Bradley Barcola. Despite an abject first-leg performance, Ousmane Dembele might retain his place in the starting lineup for now. But the manager does have other options to replace him if necessary.

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Beraldo, Mendes; Zaire-Emery, Vitinha, Ruiz; Dembele, Kolo Muani, Mbappe

Borussia Dortmund
Edin Terzic has had to ensure some of his players got their rest over the weekend in an attempt to keep them fresh for this second clash in Paris. Among those were Julian Ryerson, Sebastien Haller, Julien Duranville, and Ramy Bensebiani. Borussia Dortmund did not have any fresh concerns from the first leg, although Karim Adeyemi did suffer a knock against FC Augsburg at the weekend.

While the winger seems doubtful, he might recover from the minor issue and take his place in the starting eleven to continue where he left off last time around in the first leg. Terzic might retain a similar attacking setup, with Jadon Sancho being the livewire from the right wing in the first leg, and Julian Brandt pulling the strings from the No.10 role.

Similarly, Emre Can and Marcel Sabitzer are the ideal choices for keeping the midfield spots for Borussia Dortmund against PSG. At the back, Terzic might retain the same set, which makes it an unchanged lineup from the first leg should everyone turn up fit.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Kobel; Ryerson, Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Maatsen; Sabitzer, Can; Sancho, Brandt, Adeyemi; Fullkrug
Prediction: PSG 2-2 Borussia Dortmund
