After both clubs completed their tasks in the round of 16 and quarterfinals of the premier European competition, these two teams will again clash in this same UEFA Champions League competition, where they will battle for a spot in the final on May 1st and 7th.

In this same edition of the UCL, PSG and Borussia Dortmund shared the famous "group of death," where both managed to emerge unscathed and are currently vying to reach the final.

With a Parisian victory and a 1-1 draw, the two encounters between these clubs in the group stage ended. However, there's also a previous history between these two teams in the 2019/20 season, where PSG eliminated the German club in the round of 16.

Dortmund arrives battered for the match against PSG

For Borussia Dortmund, their domestic league is turning into a nightmare, as they currently sit in 5th position in the league, outside the spots for next season's UEFA Champions League. The German club hasn't had the best season in the Bundesliga, and their current state in the competition is critical; they're currently aiming to leave this season without empty hands, aiming to win the Champions League.

Their last match on April 27th was a painful defeat for Dortmund, losing 1-4 against Leipzig, being completely outplayed in Bundesliga's matchday 31. This match would have been the last before their encounter with PSG, and it seems that their arrival for this match after the weekend defeat is quite negative.

For PSG, the situation is entirely different. In a historic season for the club, the Parisians arrive at this moment in their domestic league, where they've just been crowned champions for the twelfth time in this tournament.

Having done the job in France, they will seek to focus entirely on their quest for the Champions League, where PSG's long-awaited dream hopes to come true this season, and not only that, but also to achieve four titles this year under the guidance of Luis Enrique.

The match between these two teams will be experienced as finals. While both aim to return to a Champions League final and triumph in it, before that, they must measure up against each other to determine who is the most optimal to reach it. The dispute of these two matches will begin on May 1st and end on May 7th, revealing who will be the finalist of the UEFA Champions League.
