The Parisians dominated the early exchanges, but faced a threat from BVB on counter-attacks. PSG’s front three put pressure on the German side but the final pass and finishing touches in the box were lacking. Ten minutes before the break, BVB took the lead after Fullkrug latched onto a through ball from Nico Schlotterbeck and beat the offside trap to score.

Spaces opened up for Dortmund, and PSG’s attempts to respond were saved by Donnarumma. PSG continued to pressure Dortmund and were unfortunate to hit the post twice in quick succession. They made an attacking change by introducing Randal Kolo Muani, but Dortmund remained a threat on counter-attacks.

Brandt missed an opportunity to make it 2-0 for Dortmund in the last seven minutes, and PSG struggled to regain momentum in the closing stages. Dortmund eventually secured a narrow win, with the second leg set for next week in France.
