Home comforts PSG overturn Dortmund deficit Luis Enrique

Paris St Germain face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League semifinal second leg, hoping their home fans will help them win.

Paris St Germain finds themselves in an unfamiliar position this Champions League season, as they prepare to play the return leg at home against Borussia Dortmund. Coach Luis Enrique is counting on the home crowd to help them overcome a 1-0 deficit in the semifinals next week.

Despite dominating possession in the first leg, PSG fell to a first-half goal from Dortmund's Niclas Fuellkrug. While they were able to defeat Barcelona and Real Sociedad in previous rounds, playing the second leg away, Enrique understands the importance of the home fans in this crucial match.

Enrique acknowledged the even match between two quality teams, both creating numerous scoring opportunities. The result accurately reflected the closely contested game, with PSG failing to capitalize on their chances.

Looking ahead to the second leg in Paris, Enrique emphasized the need for effectiveness in front of goal. PSG defender Achraf Hakimi highlighted the team's focus and preparation for Dortmund's style of play, particularly their long through balls.

Despite the disappointing result, PSG captain Marquinhos remains optimistic about their chances of a comeback. Drawing on past experiences of overturning deficits, he emphasized the energy of the home supporters and the team's ability to perform better in the upcoming match.

As they aim to progress to the final at Wembley, PSG will need to be more clinical in front of goal and address the details that made the difference in the first leg. With the support of their fans and a renewed focus, they are confident in their ability to turn the tie in their favor.
