As Borussia Dortmund host PSV Eindhoven at Westfalenstadion for Wednesday night’s second leg of their last-16 encounter, a spot in the quarterfinals of the Champions League is up for grabs.

The first leg took place three weeks ago in the Netherlands, and although Luuk de Jong’s second-half penalty canceled out an early opening from ex-PSV player Donyell Malen, the match is now in a very tight position.

Check out our predictions of the day for Borussia Dortmund vs. PSV

Prediction 1: Borussia Dortmund x PSV / Borussia Dortmund to win or draw

Two clubs who are sure of themselves to make it to the quarterfinals might meet again on Wednesday; three weeks ago, there wasn’t much between Dortmund and PSV.

Despite being slight underdogs going into the match in Germany, BVB will not take PSV lightly. The Dutch team can challenge its Bundesliga opponents to a thrilling match, which might go past the 90 minutes. But we still think Dortmund will find a way to win in front of their passionate home crowd.

Prediction 2: Borussia Dortmund x  / Both teams to score

Dortmund has a formidable opponent in PSV, who are riding high after being undefeated in 25 league games this season. On the road, PSV often sees BTTS, even if Dortmund isn’t excellent at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK. Both sides have scored in four of PSV’s six away UCL encounters, and that number drops to three out of their previous fifteen UCL assignments. You can’t really argue that Dortmund will win at home, even if they’re inconsistent.

Prediction 3: Borussia Dortmund x PSV /Borussia Dortmund to win

While Borussia Dortmund has had moments of brilliance lately, they have struggled with inconsistent play since the new year began. This week is the hosts’ chance to show themselves with a strong roster. Despite their success in the Eredivisie, PSV Eindhoven has not yet decided how to go in Europe. As the more experienced team, Borussia Dortmund will come into Wednesday’s match as the clear favorite in the UEFA Champions League.
