The French side also have very little time to celebrate the third-straight Ligue 1 title they sealed this weekend, as Les Parisiens have now won 10 of their 12 all-time top-flight titles since 2012-13.

Dortmund, the 1996-97 European Cup champions, have reached just one final since then, losing the final and a Klassiker in 2012-13 against Bayern.

Borussia Dortmund focus, team news

Dortmund remains without leading league scorer Donyell Malen as well as Remy Bensebaini, and clutch forward Sebastien Haller, but could have Ian Maatsen back.

They'll look to Niclas Fullkrug in the finishing department, but Julian Brandt has been the club's top playmaker. Center back Nico Schlotterbeck has been essential at the back end.

Paris Saint-Germain focus, team news

Kylian Mbappe remains the heart and soul of PSG's on-field hopes despite an impending exit this summer. His 33 goal contributions in Ligue 1 are 21 more than his next closest teammate (Goncalo Ramos, 12). Vitinha and Achraf Hakimi have starred for Les Parisiens this season, and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is always capable of a big moment. PSG is still without Layvin Kurzawa, Presnel Kimpembe, and Sergio Rico.
