In a match full of opportunities, the encounter between Dortmund and PSG ended with the minimum score (1-0), where both teams had numerous goal-scoring chances, which were squandered by both sides.

A misguided development of the match for the Parisians prevented them from scoring for the first time in this UEFA Champions League.

According to Luis Enrique, the match had a great development, but the problem lay in missing clear goal-scoring opportunities, with PSG wasting around 7 clear chances to score and add to the scoreboard.

Mbappe once again attracted all the attention, showing a highly erratic performance. Many media outlets claim that the errors in his on-field performance were due to his position as a center forward, as he does not pose the same threat as when he plays on the left wing.

Le Parisien mentions the possibility that Mbappe will start as a left winger on May 7th

For PSG, it seems that the goal-scoring formula is Kylian Mbappe, thanks to his determination throughout his career to perform in highly challenging matches and finish them, being the undisputed figure due to his ability to dribble, shoot, and positively contribute to the team.

Le Parisien does not rule out PSG taking to the field with several changes compared to the lineup given by Luis Enrique on May 1st. These changes would be reflected in the team's attack, with a trident formed by Ousmane Dembele, Goncalo Ramos, and Kylian Mbappe, having the opportunity to fix the Dortmund center-backs with Ramos to give Mbappe more freedom on the wing.

This work is being carried out during the post-match week, thanks to the rest offered by the LFP, so that PSG does not have to worry about Ligue 1 and their focus is on the return leg against Dortmund on May 7th at the Parc des Princes.
