Tonight, Paris Saint-Germain faces a pivotal match against Borussia Dortmund on the road in the final group stage game of the Champions League. Lucien Favre, the former manager of BVB, offered his insights into this match, warning PSG about Borussia's prowess.

PSG's chances of advancing to the round of 16 of this year's Champions League, and potentially securing the top spot in their group with a win, hinge on the outcome of this match.

According to Favre, Dortmund's playing style could pose a threat to PSG, particularly given PSG's occasional defensive vulnerabilities and how good of a counter-attacking team BVB is.

Favre noted that Dortmund tends to play a waiting game, focusing on strong defensive tactics and rapid counterattacks to beat their opponents, notably those stronger than them. He pointed out that Dortmund's recent losses, including a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Xavi Simons' RB Leipzig last weekend, were not indicative of their true talent.

The former manager of BVB warned PSG and said the French champions could also pose risks to BVB if Dortmund maintains a high line of defense, especially given the speed and skill of players like Kylian Mbappe, who could exploit spaces behind Dortmund's defense and need just a quick move to create massive danger.

Favre's expertise should definitely be taken into consideration by Luis Enrique considering the experience of the former manager of BVB and his knowledge of the German side.
