PSV vs Borussia Dortmund Tips


PSV arrive for their Champions League Round of 16 first-leg match following a fairly inconsistent campaign in which they have only won twice.

  • Borussia Dortmund Form

Borussia Dortmund topped the supposed group of death in the Champions League, finishing above PSG, Newcastle and AC Milan. 

  • PSV have drawn three of their six matches (W2, L1)
  • PSV have seen BTTS in four of their six European matches
  • Dortmund had to share the points in two of their six group-games (W3, L1)
  • The German side have seen BTTS in their last two Champions League games

Head To Head


The sides have met three times before, with Dortmund winning twice and the other meeting ending in a draw. 

PSV Form 


PSV were able to show their qualities across the group-stage, but they still failed to top the group ahead of Premier League side Arsenal. 

Their 4-0 loss to the Gunners in game one saw their hopes of topping the group take a real body blow. While they were able to claim two wins and three draws in their next five, they were always up against it is they were to finish above Arsenal. 

While PSV have been tough to beat at home, they have drawn two of their last three home games, with the side unable to make home advantage truly count. 

Borussia Dortmund Form


Borussia Dortmund were excellent in the latter-stages of their Champions League group-stage campaign as they bounced back from a loss to PSG and a draw with AC Milan by winning three of their next four and drawing once. 

Arguably their best results came on the road as they beat Newcastle 1-0 before the downing AC Milan in a 3-1 triumph. In a group that proved to be incredibly tight, their pair of away wins on the road proved to be vital. 

While I do not predict that Dortmund will win this one outright, I believe they will find a way to hold their opponents, thus giving them the advantage heading into the second-leg at home. 

Verdict

I am backing both sides to hit the back of the net as Dortmund ensure their hosts are unable to head to Germany with a lead.
