Thomas Tuchel returns to his former home for this UCL encounter

The Champions League returns from a two-month break as the knockout stage gets underway on Tuesday. Thomas Tuchel leads PSG against his former club, Borussia Dortmund, with the two squaring off at Signal-Iduna Park in Dortmund. Tuchel had a tremendous amount of success with the black and yellow and comes into this contest on the heels of a wild Ligue 1 match at Amiens on Saturday that ended in a 4-4 draw for PSG.

On the other side, Dortmund has elevated its status to potential contender after signing Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland. The former Red Bull Salzburg striker joined Dortmund in January and picked up where he left off. He won Bundesliga player of the month for January after scoring five goals in just 60 minutes of action.

Storylines

Dortmund: Haaland changes the face of this team. Light years better than the recently departed Paco Alcacer, he's a striker who before long could be considered the best in the world. Expect him to start this game and not be used as a super sub, with Dortmund knowing having him for 90 minutes could equal a fine advantage before the second leg.
PSG: Mbappe and Neymar will both be well rested, but the defense is a bit of a concern. Tanguy Kouassi's two-goal performance on Saturday gives him confidence, but the expectation is for Thiago Silva to be paired with Marquinhos at the back. On the plus side, Keylor Navas rarely has bad back-to-back games. PSG will be thrilled with a draw with goals in this one.

Dortmund vs. PSG prediction

Haaland scores twice, but Neymar and Mbappe also find the net in a thrilling contest.
Pick: Dortmund 2, PSG 2

Aprilia: Racing 2020 bikes next year "not madness"Aprilia Racing CEO Massimo Rivola says the idea of MotoGP following in Formula 1’s footsteps and racing with current machinery next year to save costs is “not madness”. The 2020 MotoGP campaign is on indefinite hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, with the opening eight races either cancelled or postponed, with the Mugello and Barcelona rounds the latest to be delayed until later in the year.

Ex-Ferrari F1 sporting director Rivola praised F1’s decision to delay its 2021 rules package by a year in a bid to cut down on costs amid the current uncertain climate, and thinks MotoGP should look at similar measures. He also mooted the idea of the MotoGP class scaling back ..
