Despite being crowned Ligue 1 champions, PSG struggled against a disciplined Dortmund defense, particularly in the first half, with Kylian Mbappe largely contained. The return leg in Paris next Tuesday will determine who will face either Bayern Munich or Real Madrid in the final at Wembley on June 1.

Dortmund coach Edin Terzic praised his team’s performance, stating, “It was a well-deserved win, a good team performance. We could have scored more goals, but so could they.” He emphasized the need for hard work in such a crucial match and expressed the team’s desire to secure a win in the second leg.

The victory also means that Germany will have a fifth qualifying spot for next season’s Champions League, with Dortmund currently benefiting from their position in fifth place in the Bundesliga with three games remaining.

PSG improved in the second half, with Mbappe hitting the post and Achraf Hakimi also striking the woodwork. Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel made crucial saves, including one from Ousmane Dembele, to preserve the lead. Dortmund, winners in 1997, are aiming to reach their first final since 2013.
