The other match of the night is an equally interesting battle between German side Dortmund and French giants Paris Saint Germain. Both teams are known for their offensive prowess, and they both score at an alarming rate. But they both suffer at the back and this could be a goal-fest between the two.

Spread: Dortmund +0.25
Total: 3.5 Goals
Dortmund did not have a very easy job in the group stage, but they were up against Barcelona, Inter Milan and a very feisty Slavia Prague side. Even so, they finished 2nd (3-2-1) and went undefeated at home (2-0-1). Dortmund have not been very good in the Champions League lately, winning just four of their last 11 such matches (4-5-2), three of which where earlier this season. That means that they have won just five of their last 13 European matches at home (5-5-3). Last season they went down to Tottenham in this very stage, and now have a W3 L2 record. Moreover, they have won just one of their last eight knock-out matches (1-5-2). Dortmund also have a W3 L2 record against French sides in two-legged ties.
On the other hand, Paris Saint Germain made a tremendous start in the Champions League this season, when they beat Real Madrid by 0-3 at home. They ended up topping their group with 16 points, while also keeping five clean sheets. Paris SG have been really unlucky in the competition in recent years. They have dropped out in this very round in each of the last three seasons. And they dropped out in the quarter-finals in the four previous campaigns too. Paris SG have won six of their last 11 CL away matches (6-3-2). And they have won each of their last two knock-out ties against German sides. PSG have won just three of their eight matches on German soil (3-4-1), but have won five of their last six against German sides regardless of venue.
The two sides met in the group stage of the 2009/10 Europa League, where they exchanged a couple of draws. This is a really interesting match-up between two very strong sides. Paris Saint Germain get a couple of players back from injury, while Dortmund have a couple of knocks too. Paris SG have been really unlucky in the competition and will try to do their best in this first leg.
