PSG vs. Borussia Dortmund preview: Team news and predicted lineups

Here is our preview of Tuesday's Champions League semifinal second leg clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund, including predicted lineups.

After beating Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 at Signal Iduna Park last week, Borussia Dortmund are one step away from reaching the Champions League final for the first time since 2014.

It's not an easy step to take, however, and Dortmund will be looking to pick up where they left off in the first leg and put in a better performance than they did in their last trip to the French capital, which ended in a 2-0 defeat at the group stage.

BVB also struggled on the road against PSG in the round of 16 and Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals, which should give head coach Edin Terzic cause for concern.

Terzic rested a long list of key players for Saturday's Bundesliga clash against Augsburg, which saw a second-string side led by Marco Reus register an impressive 5-1 win.

Compared to the first leg, Terzic will be pleased to have Donyell Malen back in the squad, with the Dutchman competing with Karim Adeyemi for a starting berth on the wing.

With no new injury concerns to consider, the BVB coach is expected to name the same team that won 1-0 at Dortmund as the Black and Yellows look to finish the job.

“You have to earn your way to Wembley. All we need is a draw in the second leg, but we also want to win. We have a small lead and a good chance,” Terzic said ahead of the game.

As for PSG, they should be refreshed for Tuesday's clash after their weekend clash with Nice was postponed. 

After his team hit the post several times in the first leg, head coach Luis Enrique will be hoping to see more ruthlessness in front of goal on home soil.

“We'll now have the crowd on our side in the second leg. Of course, we'll have to be more effective there than we were [in Dortmund],” he said.

In addition to Presnel Kimpembe and Sergio Rico, the French home side will be without Lucas Hernandez, who suffered a serious knee injury in the first leg.
