Borussia Dortmund predicted XI v PSG: Mats Hummels and Marcel Sabitzer to start, Sébastien Haller out

Borussia Dortmund are almost at full strength as they prepare to face Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final. 

Edin Terzić will be able to count on Mats Hummels against PSG. The German defender suffered a tibia injury against RB Leipzig over the weekend, however, he has made a swift recovery and he is expected to start for Borussia Dortmund, as is Marcel Sabitzer, who was left on the bench at the weekend due to flu-like symptoms. 

Chelsea loanee Ian Maatsen is expected to retain his spot in the starting XI, despite feeling some muscular pain. However, the picture is not quite as positive up front. Sébastien Haller was involved in training on Monday but it is too soon to see the Ivory Coast forward make his return. Donyell Malen, recovering from an injury to his right knee will be in the squad but it remains to be seen whether he will be fit enough to start.
