Borussia Dortmund had a two-goal advantage as they travelled to Paris with a victory in the first leg.

PSG star Neymar Jr, in the 28th minute of the game, scored a header to cut down the two-goal deficit. Angel di Maria delivered a perfect corner kick as the Brazilian went all out to head it ahead of Achraf Hakimi.
Juan Velasco scored the second goal for the hosts just before the end of the first half after a sublime cross from Pablo Sarabia. The Parisians were in complete control of the game in the first half. The game in the second half was goalless but was not deprived of action. Dortmund midfielder Emre Can was sent off in the final minutes of the game after he fouled Neymar and then ended up in a scuffle with him. PSG are through to the quarter-final courtesy of the aggregate 3-2 score in the two legs of Round of 16.
