PSG Hopeful Of Neymar’s Fitness For Dortmund Clash

Borussia Dortmund are the opponents in what will be a special tie for Thomas Tuchel, given his previous links with the German club, but the main aim for PSG is to finally get past this hurdle.

'Whether or not he plays on Saturday (against Amiens), he will be in Dortmund, I'm sure of it, but without being in the best shape he was in two weeks ago, ' said the former Dortmund boss before announcing his match squad for Amiens.

Another two goals means Haaland has now scored 10 Champions League goals in just seven appearances, reaching the mark four games quicker than any other player in the competition's history.

"Some good individual performances at times, but in the first half we were too negative, played it back too many times and made technical errors we don't normally". Nobody can know how a different system would have worked out.

But club officials were less than impressed to learn that their still-recovering star had headed to Germany for an event for clothing brand "Replay", organized by German fashion outlet Peek & Cloppenburg.

Seven of those had been diagnosed with the virus, and three more were isolated for feverish conditions during the flight. Globally, the coronavirus has sickened more than 73,300 people and killed 1,873, most of whom lived in mainland China .

Haaland's strike changed the complexion of the match. "We lost the ball often", Marquinhos said.

PSG, who were eliminated at this stage of the competition in the previous three seasons, were nearly completely shut out by an extremely efficient Dortmund backline, while Marco Verratti and Thomas Meunier will miss the return leg after picking up bookings.

The return leg takes place at the Parcs des Prices on March 11. "But it was important that we all defended extremely well".

"It was a big statement from the team how we defended today".
