Richard Ledezma has returned from his loan deal with New York City and PSV boss Peter Bosz included the midfielder in the club's Champions League squad.


Southampton loanee Armel Bella-Kotchap is a doubt on account of a shoulder problem, while Guus Til is out injured. As such, Jerdy Schouten will continue to deputise for Til in the middle, with captain Luuk de Jong leading the line of attack.


BVB boss Edin Terzic will welcome January signings Jadon Sancho and Ian Maatsen in his UCL squad. Ramy Bensebaini will miss out on account of illness, while Sebastien Haller, Karim Adeyemi and Felix Nmecha sidelined through injuries. Haller's absense will push Niclas Fullkrug in attack, with support from Sancho, Julian Brandt and Marco Reus.


Borussia Dortmund will make the trip to the Netherlands to take on Eredivisie leaders PSV Eindhoven in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie on Tuesday.


The stage is set for a blockbuster Champions League tie as Borussia Dortmund collide against their former coach Peter Bosz and his PSV Eindhoven side. The Dutch giants have hardly put a foot wrong so far this season, and already find themselves within touching distance of Eredivisie glory.


Edin Terzic's side will have their task cut out on Tuesday against PSV, who have been scoring goals for fun this season. Luuk de Jong has 27 goals and 11 assists to his name this season, and the veteran striker could cause a fair few problems to the BVB defenders. Johan Bakayoko, Guus Til, and Ismael Saibari are among the other talented forward players in the PSV ranks.


Borussia Dortmund will need strong performances from the likes of Jadon Sancho, Marco Reus and Julian Brandt if they are to get anything out of the first leg. Ian Maatsen will also have a key role to play against his former club, while Donyell Malen will hope to recover from his knee injury in time to feature.


Bosz endured a pretty miserable 167-day spell in charge of the Bundesliga club in 2017, but has found himself once more in Eindhoven.


PSV are flying domestically and remain unbeaten in Eredivisie. However, they could only finish behind Arsenal in Group B which set up a last 16 clash with Group F winners Dortmund.


The German side impressively won the toughest group of the bunch despite their domestic troubles this term. While Dortmund sit fourth in the Bundesliga, questions have continued to arise regarding Edin Terzic's long-term future at the club.


Bosz has lost electric winger Noa Lang for the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury, though he has featured sparingly this term after enjoying a productive start to the campaign.


American international Ricardo Pepi could continue in the XI in Lang's absence, although playmaker Ismael Saibiri is also in contention, but Southampton defender Armel Bella-Kotchap is a doubt.


AFCON hero Sebastien Haller is out until next month with an ankle injury, so Niclas Fullkrug will continue up top for the visitors, who are also without the speedy Karim Adeyemi. Felix Nmecha also misses out with a hip injury, while Donyell Malen, an unused substitute in the Bundesliga at the weekend, is a doubt.


Champions League knockout ties don't come around too often at the Philips Stadion, and the PSV faithful will be in a borderline frenzy state on Tuesday as Bosz takes on his former club.


Dortmund have impressed away from home in this competition and certainly won't fear their upcoming opponents, although PSV's record on their own patch this term is pretty imperious, especially domestically.


Bosz's side will get caught out by superior opposition eventually, but you could envisage them overwhelming the visitors in midweek with the sheer speed, fluidity, and intensity with which they play. There should be goals at both ends.


Dortmund can find some encouragement in PSV’s Champions League form. PSV recorded two wins, three draws, and one defeat in a Champions League group featuring Arsenal, Lens, and an abysmal Sevilla. They were far from convincing in their group, especially after a 4-0 defeat to Arsenal in London. If both sides play like they have been in the Champions League then Dortmund should be able to produce a victory.


Considering it’s a special Champions League edition of the Match Preview, I have gone with two players to watch. The first is Luuk de Jong, PSV’s top goalscorer. The 33-year-old is in the twilight of a career that has seen him play in Barcelona, Sevilla, Newcastle, and Monchengladbach amongst others. His ability to find space and finish chances is the reason he is the Eredivisie 10th highest goalscorer in history. PSV’s game model is designed around creating chances for Luuk de Jong and whoever Dortmund features at center-back will be tasked with preventing de Jong from getting chances.


My other pick for Player to Watch is Joey Veerman, PSV’s equivalent to Marcel Sabitzer. The 25-year-old is a prolific creative player featuring 0.5 assists per 90 and a whopping 8.78 shot-creating actions per 90. His defensive numbers are far from poor as well with 2.19 tackles, 1.55 blocks, and 1.45 clearances. Veerman plays in a double pivot alongside a prototypical defensive midfielder and a much more attacking midfielder in front of them. The one criticism of Veerman’s game is his tendency to lose the ball in his own half. Dortmund’s ability to win this game may be hinged upon the team’s ability to neutralize and dispossess Veerman.


Despite featuring more pragmatic lineups in the Champions League this season, I think Terzic will opt for his usual 4-3-3 against Eindhoven. I put Malen back into the lineup and the Dutchman will hopefully be motivated to perform against his old team. Jadon Sancho is still far from full sharpness but I expect him to feature once again. After a poor performance over the weekend and reportedly losing six kilograms due to sickness, I do not see Brandt getting the start against PSV. The other two swaps I predict are Özcan for Can, who was poor against Wolfsburg, and Hummels back in the starting lineup for Süle.


I think a 2-2 draw gives Dortmund a lot of credit and would be a great result away from home. PSV is a great side but they have looked out of their depth in the Champions League this season. Like his time at Dortmund, I predict Bosz’s commitment to attacking football with produce an entertaining game but will leave his side exposed for some Füllkrug shenanigans.


PSV Eindhoven are currently at the top of the Eredivisie standings and have been in excellent form so far this season. The hosts eased past Heracles by a comfortable 2-0 scoreline in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this week.


Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, are in fourth place in the league table at the moment and have improved after a slow start to their campaign. The Ruhr Valley outfit played out a 1-1 draw against VfL Wolfsburg over the weekend and will need to take it up a notch in this fixture.
