Paris Saint-Germain are gearing up for a tense finale in Champions League Group F as they head to Germany to face Borussia Dortmund at the Westfalenstadion on Wednesday evening.
Luis Enrique’s team, currently second in their group after a contentious 1-1 draw with Newcastle two weeks ago, know that their fate is in their own hands going into the sixth matchday. However, the tight group standings leave them with no margin for error to avoid an unexpected early departure from the competition.
The French giants prepared for this crucial match with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Nantes in Ligue 1 last Saturday.
On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund, having secured maximum points from their last three matches, are virtually assured of progressing in Group F.
Yet, Edin Terzić’s squad has struggled to mirror this success in the Bundesliga, finding themselves fifth in the league following a 3-2 home loss to RB Leipzig on Saturday.
In terms of outright betting, Borussia Dortmund are the underdogs for this final Group F game, with odds of 3/1 at Bet 365. Despite two consecutive away losses in the Champions League, PSG are the favourites, with odds of 17/20 at Bet 365.
For alternative betting options, considering PSG’s unreliable form at short odds, I’m suggesting betting on Under Three Asian Goals at 20/23 with Bet 365. This bet pays out for 0, 1, or 2 goals in the match, with stakes returned for exactly three goals. This choice seems promising given the current dynamics in the group.
Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League games have typically been close contests, with four out of five Group F games seeing two or fewer goals.
While Dortmund have already secured a spot in the next round, they aim to clinch at least one point to finish as group leaders, which would ensure a better seeding in the last-16 draw.
PSG, although in greater need of points, are likely to play cautiously, mindful of Dortmund’s recent strong European performances.
