Dortmund-PSG: “We are the team that is the hungriest,” insists Edin Terzic, coach of Borussia

“Paris is now in its best form,” underlined Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic on Tuesday, on the eve of facing Paris-SG in the semi-final first leg of the Champions League on Wednesday (9:00 p.m.), at Signal Iduna Park.

Borussia Dortmund and PSG meet for a place in the C1 final, after two meetings during the group stage in the fall (2-0 Parisian victory) and in the winter (1-1 draw in Germany ). “We know that Paris is now in top form. They have accumulated very good results and only one defeat in 2024. We know that we will still have to improve our performance in the second leg of the group stage, warned Edin Terzic at a press conference.

For the Dortmund technician, PSG experienced a profound change in the summer of 2023 and did not necessarily show the performances he hoped for at the start of the season, but always obtained results. “I think that in recent weeks or months, they have been extremely consistent,” he said. PSG with its project has been built with the objective of winning the Champions League for almost a decade. We want to be a part of that. If we had to play 44 matches against Paris-SG, it would be difficult for us, but there are only two matches, 180 minutes,” Terzic said again.

Faced with the flexibility and speed of the Parisian team, capable of readjusting during the match, Dortmund will have to set its priorities, he believes. “In which area do we want to recover the ball, when do we come out of our positions, where do we strengthen, where can we not afford to save two meters, because that there, they become extremely dangerous,” he detailed.

“Against Atlético in the quarter-final return (4-2 victory) or in Munich on the road (2-0 victory), we showed that we could play good matches, so we are confident in our ability to make two good matches, underlined Terzic.

Favorite or underdog? The kind of consideration that does not interest the coach of Dortmund, fifth in the Bundesliga. I don't care, the main thing is that we have a chance. I think we have a chance, and if there is one, we have to take it. Maybe we are the team with the least experience at this level of the competition, but who are the hungriest. Maybe that’s what we need to use to our advantage,” he added.
