Borussia Dortmund vs Paris St-Germain: Edin Terzic says PSG ‘built to win the Champions League’

Paris St-Germain, who were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich in the 2020 final, have never won the Champions League

Paris St-Germain is “built to win the Champions League”, according to Dortmund boss Edin Terzic.

The two teams meet in the first leg of the semi-finals on Wednesday, with Ligue 1 champions PSG looking to win the competition for the first time.

The French team, which defeated Barcelona in the quarter-finals, lost to Bayern Munich in the 2020 final.

“The project in Paris started with the aim of winning the Champions League,” said Terzic.

“That has been their main goal for ten years.

“Maybe we are the team with less experience, but perhaps we are the most hungry.

“If everyone commits, not just those on the pitch and on the bench, but everyone in the stadium, we have a huge opportunity – and we must seize it.”

PSG manager Luis Enrique said his side were “here to enjoy it” when they face Dortmund, who won the Champions League in 1997 and are fifth in the German Bundesliga.

“The great thing about our presence here is that we can enjoy a very special match in a unique stadium in Europe,” said the Spaniard.

“We have a chance to make our fans very happy by reaching the final. That is what we have earned the right to do. We will try to enjoy it.”
