Borussia Dortmund vs PSG: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and where to watch. Already qualified Borussia Dortmund welcome French heavyweights PSG to their backyard with the latter looking to take three points and seal their spot in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
Borussia Dortmund became the first side to earn a Round of 16 spot from Group F of the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League as they thrashed AC Milan in their previous European outing.
Despite going through, the 2022/23 Bundesliga runners-up would be vying to finish the group stage segment on a high and also take revenge of the defeat they faced in France on Matchday 1.
PSG rattled Dortmund's hopes of securing a win in the reverse fixture to open their group stage with three points as a Kylian Mbappe penalty and Achraf Hakimi strike deflated their German rivals.
Since then, Luis Enrique's have managed just a single win against AC Milan taking their points tally to seven points. Despite the hiccups the Parisian powerhouses have fate in the palms of their own hands because a win in Germany would see them go through while any other result could cut short their UCL campaign.
Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
Dortmund vs PSG kick-off time
Date: December 13, 2023
Kick-off time: 3:00 pm ET / 12:00 pm PT
Venue: SIGNAL IDUNA PARK
Dortmund will welcome PSG to the SIGNAL IDUNA Park with kick-off scheduled at 3:00 pm ET / 12:00 pm PT in the USA.
The forward duo of Sebastian Haller and Youssoufa Moukoko are ruled out of the clash with a hamstring and knee injury, respectively. Julian Ryerson (knee) and Julien Duranville (thigh) are also sidelined for the encounter.
The biggest absentee for the home side would be Emre Can with the German midfielder suspended from the crucial clash due to his accumulation of yellow cards.
Marcel Sabitzer has a knee issue alongside Felix Nmecha who is out because of a hip problem leaving BVB in a dilemma but the former Manchester United midfielder would be vying to shake off his injury and feature in the eleven.
PSG's absentee list includes Nuno Mendes (hamstring), Presnel Kimpembe (Achilles), Fabian Ruiz (shoulder), Keylor Navas (back) and Sergio Rico (head trauma) but with all already missing out a major chunk of the campaign, Enrique will not have to tinker much with his probable eleven
Ousmane Dembele's second-half yellow card during Newcastle's visit to France will see the French international miss the fixture against his former employees. Bradley Barcola could displace the former Barcelona star in the eleven while Warren Zaire-Emery is expected to be called by Enrique only in a situation of misery with the young prodigy recovering from an ankle problem he picked on his Les Bleus debut.
Borussia Dortmund scored the most points they've had all season to find success two weeks ago. They came out on top against AC Milan by a score of 3-1. The last goal Borussia Dortmund scored came from Karim Adeyemi in minute 69.
Meanwhile, neither PSG nor Newcastle United could gain the upper hand two weeks ago so the two teams had to settle for a 1-1 draw. PSG's goal came from Kylian Mbappé at minute 90, while Newcastle United's was scored by Alexander Isak in the 24th.
Borussia Dortmund is the German Bundisliga power that also now sits atop the UEFA Champions League Group F standings with a 3-1-1 record, 10 points and plus-3 goal differential. The top spot in Group F isn’t yet guaranteed either, with Paris St. Germain sitting in the No. 2 spot with seven points and a chance to jump into the top spot. Dortmund could also afford to find the win column again after going 0-1-2 in three matches since taking a 3-1 victory over AC Milan back on Nov. 28 that clinched a spot in the Champions League knockout round.
In that match against AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund was on the wrong side of the possession battle (54 to 46 percent), shots (17-12) and corners (10-1), but Dortmund was opportunistic on offense with a pair of second-half goals by Jamie Bynoe-Gittens and Karim Adeyemi and got two important saves from goalkeeper Gregor Kobel.
Paris Saint-Germain has an opportunity to surge to a Group F win by defeating Borussia Dortmund, but must accomplish that feat on German soil against a quality Dortmund side. The Parisians can still reach the knockout stage with a draw in Wednesday’s group stage finale, but would need a little help in the form of an AC Milan or draw against Newcastle United.
A win for Newcastle would mean PSG need to secure victory in Germany, as defeat would see the Magpies through, and a draw would also allow the Premier League team passage into the next phase based on superior their head-to-head record over the Parisians.
