Borussia Dortmund ready for PSG challenge

Borussia Dortmund’s Edin Terzić believes PSG are one of the favourites to win the Champions League, but relishes the opportunity as his BVB side travel to France for their opening fixture in this season’s competition.

Die Schwarzgelben come into this game following a 4-2 win against Freiburg in the Bundesliga, but Tuesday’s game is of a different magnitude. “It’s a different task on Tuesday,” said Terzić. “We are very happy to accept this challenge. Paris is one of the favourites to win the Champions League.” 

Dortmund have been somewhat underwhelming in their opening four Bundesliga games of the season, but Tuesday’s game against PSG is a massive opportunity for BVB, given that the French champions are coming into the game following a defeat against Nice.

Borussia Dortmund will want to better their showing in last season’s competition when they were eliminated from the competition against Chelsea in the Round of 16. But they have a difficult task ahead of them after being draw in Group F alongside PSG, Newcastle United and Milan.
