PSG are predicted to win the game in the Dortmund vs PSG betting odds
Even though the game will be in Germany, bookmakers are still favoring PSG to win the game, their odds are 2.20. Of course, we can understand them, as they are leading Ligue 1 with 12 points ahead of Marseille. They also won their team in the Champions League confidently, with 5 wins and only one draw against Real Madrid. But to give you the whole picture, it wasn’t a very tough group with Galatasaray and Club Brugge in it. And the group stage was always going well for the Parisians, all problems have been started in the knockout phase so far.
Surely they will try to make the fans forget the previous failures and go through to the next round. No doubt, that their German manager, Thomas Tuchel will prepare them thoroughly and give them useful background about his former club, Dortmund. But even he won’t have that much information about freshly signed new talent, Erling Haaland, who seems to find his place straight away.
Youngsters at Dortmund can score easily
Maybe online gambling sites in Germany are not really believing in Dortmund’s win, which has the odds of 3.00, but certainly think that both teams will score at the game. It has the odds of 1.38 at Unibet. So why is this optimistic preview?
Dortmund are full of young talents like Jadon Sancho, Julian Brandt and the most recent signing, Erling Haaland. The latter one joined the club just a few weeks ago from Red Bull Salzburg. The young Norwegian is the first teenager to score goals in his first five Champions League games. It looks like he will continue in the same style at Dortmund as well. He already scored a hat-trick in his debut game against Augsburg. However, his teammates are also more than capable of scoring. Dortmund has scored the most goals so far in the Bundesliga.
And who could forget the forwards at PSG? The trio of Mbappe, Neymar and Cavani is one of the most dangerous companies you can imagine in today’s football. So, no matter how talented Dortmund players are, online sportsbooks in Germany still massively favor PSG to qualify for the next round. Their odds are 1.37.
