Dortmund’s teenage sensation, Erling Braut Haaland, scored twice as the German side beat illustrious Paris St Germain 2-1 at home in the last 16 opening leg.
An away goal puts this tie onto a knife edge, though. Dortmund scoring in the second leg will make this very interesting, but PSG have an abundance of attacking options, too.
