Match Summary of Borussia Dortmund vs PSG

Teams

 

Borussia Dortmund vs PSG
Both the teams line up to shake their hands before the match.

 

 19:59     The teams walk out on to the pitch into an empty arena. But we can hear the violent drumming and chanting outside the ground of the crowd that has gathered, even the authorities weren’t expecting this. Is there even a big screen there for them to watch the game, I highly doubt.

20:00 on the clock, refree blows and PSG gets the game going. It’s Neymar vs Haaland in a Sunday League setting.

First Half of  Borussia Dortmund vs PSG (Second Leg)

1′     Foul by Emre Can (Borussia Dortmund). Neymar wins a free kick early in the game in the defensive half.

3′     Foul by Leandro Paredes (Paris Saint Germain). Emre Can (Borussia Dortmund) wins a free kick in the defensive half.

4′     Foul by Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint Germain). Dan-Axel Zagadou (Borussia Dortmund) wins a free kick in the defensive half.

6′     Many loud fireworks are being detonated outside the stadium. You’ve got to hand it to the PSG ultras, Le Parc des Princes is one of the great car park atmospheres in the history of European football.

7′     Bernant collects the ball just outside the box on the let-hand side. He makes a shuffling burst between two opponents and passes to Sarabia, he chips the ball towards Cavani in the centre, but Dortmund’s centrebacks are well positioned and there is no chance of the cross reaching the striker.

8′     Neymar goes down, physio is called up. He is receiving treatment to his shoulder. He’s helped off the pitch.

9′     Seems like Neymar is fine, and ready to roar back on the pitch.

10′    Foul by Axel Witsel. There’s been a general lack of sharpness about players on both teams and maybe they’re finding it hard to get ‘in the zone’ in an empty ground? Pablo Sarabia (Paris Saint Germain) wins a free kick in the defensive half.

12′    Hand ball by Achraf Hakimi (Borussia Dortmund).

16′    Yellow Card

Haaland’s first significant impact in the game, however it earns him a yellow card, as he catches Paredes with a bad foul, a lately timed tackle.

18′    Corner to PSG. Conceded by Achraf Hakimi. Neymar delivers an in-swinger. Haaland heads it away from the near post.

19′    Dortmund makes a real chance for the first time. Hakimi flies down the right and sends over a cross but no one can meet, Guerreiro retrieves it on the far side and chips the ball back to Sancho, who smashes off a volley from the edge of the box. It’s a sweet connection but well off the target to the right.

24′    Di Maria does exceptionally well to stop a pass from Sarabia from running out of play; then he nutmegs Zagadou near the byline and goes down hoping for a penalty with a brush of the defender. Ref wasn’t convinced,  there was nowhere near enough contact to justify that.

25′    Attempt saved.

Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint Germain) right footed shot from the right side of the box is saved in the bottom left corner. Di Maria nips a lovely pass through to Cavani, whose runs off the shoulder of the last defender and lashes a low shot goalwards from 20 yards. The first real chance of the game for PSG was a glorious one, and Burki did very well!

Bernat again! A left footed shot from more than 40 yards on the left wing misses to the right.

Half time whistle blows. It’s been an exemplary first period from the hosts. They’ve shown poise and smarts and been ruthless enough to take advantage of loose defending. They’ve overturned the first-leg deficit with minimal stress and have showed no sign of trembling. Dortmund have been disappointing … but one goal for them levels up this tie. The thing is, as they press for that goal, they will leave themselves even more open … but Mbappé is due to come on at some stage in next 45 mins. Paris are definitely in the driving seat.
