Live ticker PSV Eindhoven – Borussia Dortmund (Champions League 2023/2024, round of 16 first leg)


9:25 p.m

Tooor for Borussia Dortmund, 0-1 by Donyell Malen

Painting silences the stadium! Füllkrug heads a high ball to the half-right to Sabitzer, who just tips it to Malen. The 25-year-old beats Dest on the edge of the penalty area and shoots from a slightly tight angle and 13 meters. The thing somehow slips behind the line from the inside post and the crossbar. Very bad hit.


9:23 p.m

Hirving Lozano

Yellow card for Hirving Lozano (PSV Eindhoven)

Lozano illegally holds his opponent. Instead he sees the first yellow box of the encounter.


9:21 p.m

After a Dortmund corner, things get tricky for the Dutch. However, Schlotterback only caught Reus’ cross with the top of his head in the six-yard box. The ball flies into the opposite sideline.


9:19 p.m

The opportunities are piling up. After moving to the side via Sabitzer and Sancho, Reus crosses flatly from the left into the middle. There, Füllkrug takes off straight away, but doesn’t hit the play equipment properly – over it.


9:18 p.m

Tillman! The first top-class player belongs to the Bosz team. The red and whites combine very simply through the center and de Jong on the edge of the box. There Tillman drills the ball from 17 meters, quite free-standing, past the goal on the bottom left.


9:17 p.m

On the other hand, it is Malen who has the first opportunity for the guests. Benítez effortlessly defuses his left-footed shot from 20 meters from the left-hand position.


9:16 p.m

Bad scene from Maatsen. The left-back misses the marble in his own half against Tillman. The loanee from FC Bayern runs forward on the half-right before attempting a pass towards de Jong in the penalty area. The ball deflected into Meyer’s arms – a direct shot would have been the better alternative.


9:12 p.m

For the first time, Meyer has to go. Lozano hits the far post from the left with his right foot. However, the keeper is in front of de Jong and intercepts it well.


9:11 p.m

There is a lot of speed in the game on both sides. Dortmund generates a lot of ball possession, but the hosts rely on quick transitions.


9:08 p.m

…the stationary ball brings nothing.


9:08 p.m

Things are getting off to a really good start. First, Sancho dribbles his way a bit luckily on the half-right, then he fails to paint the pass to the right from a promising position. So there’s a counter-attack opportunity, at the end of which Lozano takes a corner on the left in the sixteen-yard box…


9:05 p.m

First of all, Füllkrug can move on.


9:05 p.m

That would be bitter for BVB: In a fair duel with Boscagli, Füllkrug falls down and holds his leg. The attacker must be treated outside.


9:03 p.m

Very important tackle from Hummels! Because PSV overplayed the aggressive counter-pressing, Saibari was allowed to rush into the opponent’s half with all his might. Shortly before he can play out to the left from the middle, Hummels clears him cleanly.

8:47 p.m

Short-term change at BVB: Goalkeeper Kobel is obviously injured. The Swiss can no longer take part, substitute Meyer can take over.

8:45 p.m

Because: The Boeren also had to survive a difficult group in the premier class. Behind Arsenal FC, but ahead of RC Lens and the long-time Europa League winner FC Sevilla, they took second place with nine points. They only suffered a defeat against the Londoners (0:4) – otherwise there were two threesomes and three draws to celebrate. There is also the Peter Bosz component: the Dutchman is certainly eager to get one over on his former club.

8:37 p.m

However: PSV should by no means be underestimated. With a crisp 62 points from 22 league games, they are ten points ahead of their first pursuers Feyenoord Rotterdam. The impressive thing: Former Dortmund coach Peter Bosz’s team only gave up points in two games and is still unbeaten in the Eredivisie this season. 70 own goals and only ten goals conceded should definitely not give rise to pride among the Germans.


Luckily for the black and yellow: the Bundesliga is not the same as the Champions League. Things went really well there in the awesome group with Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan and Newcastle United. Although the first encounter with the French was lost (0-2), they were finally able to prevail in Group F – as first in the table. A total of three wins and two draws with only one defeat meant a safe place in the round of 16. They were able to avoid big opponents like Real Madrid, Manchester City and FC Barcelona.

8:19 p.m

Borussia didn’t really gain any confidence last weekend in the Bundesliga for today’s Champions League appearance. Despite an early and long-lasting lead, the weakening VfL Wolfsburg only managed a draw (1:1). In the championship, the sometimes average performances are currently only enough for fourth place – not enough given the ailing Bayern, who otherwise had to defend the championship title against BVB. Since RB Leipzig is only one point away in fifth place, the Westphalians have to focus more on making it into the premier class on their own and keeping the Saxons at a distance.


The home team formed a four-man defensive line in front of goalkeeper Benítez consisting of ex-Munich player Dest, Boscagli, Schouten and Teze. Saibari, Veerman and Tillmann make up the three-man midfield. Lozano and Bakayoko rotate on the left and right wing, while de Jong is the target player in the center.

8:06 p.m

Let’s first look at the lineups. For the guests, a four-man chain consisting of Maatsen, Schlotterbeck, Hummels and Ryerson starts in front of keeper Kobel. Can and Sabitzer form the double six, Sancho and Malen play on the wing. Reus plays on the ten, Füllkrug is supposed to score goals up front.
