FULL-TIME! PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Dortmund bow out of the Champions League after first-half goals from Neymar and former Bayern player Juan Bernat see PSG win 2-0 on the night and 3-2 on aggregate.

The visitors had plenty of possession in the second half, but they could not carve out the chance they needed to force extra-time.

90+4' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

PSG eating into the clock any chance they can get...

90' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Five minutes of injury-time for Dortmund to try and force extra-time...

89' RED CARD! PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Emre Can brings Neymar to ground and then there's a scuffle involving several  players as Neymar goes down a second time after confronting Can. Neymar, Marquinhos and the subbed Di Maria are all yellow carded for PSG, while Can sees red for BVB.

85' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Last change for Dortmund. Götze on for Hakimi.

85' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Time quickly running out for Dortmund. Former Schalke defender Thilo Kehrer takes a break from marking Sancho to break forward and win a free-kick for PSG. But Neymar's effort sails harmlessly wide.

80' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Dortmund are gradually building pressure, forcing a succession of corners in the process.

78' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Reyna links up nicely with Brandt and the German sees another shot take a deflection and loop onto the roof of the net. That was the visitors' ninth attempt at goal, but only two have been on target.

75' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Can tries his luck from distance but doesn't trouble Navas.

73' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Brandt drills the ball wide from the edge of the area. Dortmund still waiting for a big opening in this game.

71' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Or maybe Gio Reyna can make the telling contribution? The US teenager comes on for Witsel as Dortmund start to take more chances.

69' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Dortmund could do with a spark and have brought on Brandt for Hazard in the hope he'll provide it. Bernat gets a yellow for a foul on Hakimi but the free-kick comes to nothing.

64' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Kylian Mbappe comes on for PSG as Sarabia makes way. A sure sign that the home side would like to kill off the tie if they can. A Dortmund free-kick then almost leads to a chance for Haaland in the area.

61' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Dortmund put some pressure on at the edge of the PSG area, but they just can't work a clear shooting chance. Hummels then picks up a yellow card for pulling back Cavani when the home side look to break.

54' GOOD SAVE! PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Di Maria catches a free-kick well, but Bürki gets across to claw the ball away. The shot may just have been drifting wide anyway, but the Dortmund keeper was right to take no chances.

53' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

PSG enjoying a bit more of the ball again in what's been a scrappy few minutes.

48' PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

A good, high-tempo start from Dortmund. Getting plenty of bodies around the PSG penalty area too...

SECOND HALF! PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

We're back underway...

HALF-TIME! PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

That first half did not go to plan for Dortmund. Neymar's header from a corner saw PSG level the tie – and take the advantage on aggregate due to the away goal they scored in the first leg. Things then got worse in first-half stoppage time as Bernat – who won his share of battles with BVB as a Bayern player – popped up in the area to score.

PSG are in a strong position at the break, then. Dortmund were looking more dangerous before the second goal, though, so the visitors will be hopeful they will create chances in the second half.

45+1' GOAL! PSG 2-0 Borussia Dortmund (3-2 agg)

Disaster for Dortmund right before half-time. PSG threaten for the first time and Sarabia's low ball across the area is touched home by ex-Bayern player Juan Bernat.

PSG lead 3-2 on aggregate now and Dortmund need a goal at the very least to force extra-time.

41' PSG 1-0 Borussia Dortmund (2-2 agg)

Hazard drives wide from the right edge of the area. Dortmund are certainly looking more dangerous now, but they could do with getting Haaland into the game a lot more.

38' PSG 1-0 Borussia Dortmund (2-2 agg)

Sancho tries his luck from a tight angle on the left of the area this time, but again Navas has his angles worked out. PSG have been sitting back since breaking the deadlock.

36' PSG 1-0 Borussia Dortmund (2-2 agg)

Sancho forces PSG keeper Keylor Navas into a save with a free-kick from distance. But it was close enough to the centre of the goal to make it a comfortable save.

34' PSG 1-0 Borussia Dortmund (2-2 agg)

Dortmund now have to score if they are to make the quarter-finals. The visitors, who have had only one attempt on goal so far, are seeing more of the ball at least.

28' GOAL! PSG 1-0 Borussia Dortmund (2-2 agg)

Neymar – of all people – scores a header from a corner. The ball from Di Maria travelled a long way and Hakimi can't prevent the Brazilian netting with a diving header from inside the six-yard box. His third Champions League goal of the season puts the French champions ahead in the tie and leading on away goals on aggregate.

25' CLOSE! PSG 0-0 Borussia Dortmund (1-2 agg)

Edinson Cavani is played through on goal and he's scored so often in this kind of situation... but Dortmund keeper Bürki gets the slightest of touches with his outstretched right foot to send the ball wide. Vital save!

23' PSG 0-0 Borussia Dortmund (1-2 agg)

PSG have had 72 percent of possession so far but Dortmund – dare we say it – are looking very comfortable. Sancho almost finds Haaland in the middle to give the home side another warning..

18' CHANCE! PSG 0-0 Borussia Dortmund (1-2 agg)

Hakimi gets away down the right for the first time and fires over a dangerous cross that just evades Haaland. When the ball is sent back in from the other side, Sancho volleys wide from the edge of the area. Better from the visitors.

17' PSG 0-0 Borussia Dortmund (1-2 agg)

Haaland gets the first yellow card of the game for a foul on PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes. Dortmund look compact and well organised so far. But Lucien Favre would like to see his team do more when they get the ball. They've not troubled the home side so far.

10' PSG 0-0 Borussia Dortmund (1-2 agg)

Neymar is fit to continue. And Jadon Sancho shows a flash of what he's capable of with a nice nutmeg on Angel Di Maria. PSG have had the bulk of possession, though, without looking threatening.

9' PSG 0-0 Borussia Dortmund (1-2 agg)

A hold up as PSG star Neymar gets some treatment. He hurt his shoulder after taking a tumble following an excellent Mats Hummels tackle.

5' PSG 0-0 Borussia Dortmund (1-2 agg)

Fireworks outside the pitch from the PSG fans who are assembled outside the stadium, and a few fiery tackles early on from the home side too.


There's nothing like the atmosphere in Dortmund on 18 February, but a huge game is underway behind closed doors. Can Dortmund hold on to – or even build on – their 2-1 lead from the first leg?


Following his quick-fire double in the first leg, Erling Haaland now has 10 - TEN! - goals in this season's Champions League. The Norwegian will be looking to do similar damage tonight, knowing that Thiago Silva, PSG's captain and most experienced centre-back, is missing tonight through injury.


The big news with the PSG team is that Kylian Mbappe is only fit enough for a place on the bench. The home side's star striker has been ill in recent days.

Pablo Sarabia starts in place of the France international, while former Bayern Munich player Juan Bernat comes in at left-back.

With Thomas Meunier and Marco Verratti suspended and Thiago Silva suspended, Thomas Tuchel has made five changes in total to the team that lost 2-1 in Dortmund.


Lucien Favre has picked the same XI that earned a hard-fought 2-1 win in the first leg in Dortmund.

Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland, and Thorgan Hazard represent a potent-looking front three.


PSG will be without their usual vociferous backing tonight, which could make things slightly easier for Dortmund. Visiting goalkeeper Roman Bürki is hopeful that the countless BVB fans watching from afar will see his side join RB Leipzig in the quarter-finals.

''We're going to try to get everything we can from the match and give all of our fans watching back home a reason to celebrate by making it through to the next round," he said. "It doesn't matter how."


No matter what happens once the game gets underway, this will be a memorable night for Dan-Axel Zagadou. The Dortmund defender is from the Paris suburb of Creteil, and joined PSG at the age of 12 before moving to Germany in 2017. Now aged 20, he's relishing a return to the French capital – and the opportunity to play at the Parc des Princes.

"I didn't get the chance to do it when I was at PSG, so everything will be special," he said. "I've always been a PSG fan, but never been on that pitch."


Dortmund's 2-1 win in the first leg is a very good omen. BVB have won 17 of the 18 UEFA competition ties in which they won the first leg at home.


Join us for all the build-up and live match coverage as Dortmund look to progress to the quarter-finals after earning the upper hand in the tie with a 2-1 victory at home in the first leg.

Watch: A tactical analysis of Dortmund's deadly attack


Haaland scored both goals as Dortmund won the first leg 2-1. The Norwegian currently tops the European scoring charts with an eye-watering 40 goals in all competitions for Salzburg (28) and Dortmund (12), including 10 in this season's Champions League. He turned provider at the weekend for the first time in BVB colours as Lucien Favre's side went second in the Bundesliga standings courtesy of a 2-1 win at Borussia Mönchengladbach. Thorgan Hazard was the beneficiary, before Jadon Sancho sprang from the bench to set up Achraf Hakimi's winning goal. The England international's 15th assist of the season set a new club record, in addition to making him the first Englishman to lay on 15 goals or more in one of Europe's top five league since Frank Lampard produced 18 for Chelsea in 2004/05. Apart from captain Marco Reus, Favre can count on a fully-fit squad as Dortmund bid to join the G8 of European football.

PSG had an unscheduled rest at the weekend, their trip to Strasbourg postponed due to public health concerns, and UEFA confirmed on Monday that the match will be played behind closed doors "following decisions taken by the relevant authorities related to measures regarding the COVID-19 virus." They lead France's Ligue 1 by 12 points, but it's with some trepidation they face in-form Dortmund, shaken by past knockout-round failings against the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United. Kylian Mbappe has been ill this week but is likely to start, while Thiago Silva has been ruled out with a hamstring problem and Thomas Meunier and Marco Verratti are suspended. Former Schalke full-back Thilo Kehrer could come in for Meunier. Neymar is set to start with Edinson Cavani also for company in the final third.

Match stats

  • Only Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski (11) has scored more Champions League goals than Haaland this season.
