According to reports, Dembele suffered a hamstring injury during a training session on Monday, and despite undergoing treatment, he has been deemed unfit to play in the high-stakes match at the Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old French international has been in impressive form this season, scoring 15 goals and providing 12 assists in 36 appearances for PSG. His pace and skill on the wing have been a key component of the team’s attack, and his absence is likely to be deeply felt.
PSG coach, Christophe Galtier, expressed his disappointment at the news, saying, “Ousmane is a vital player for us, and his absence is a big loss. However, we have a talented squad, and we will adapt and find a solution to overcome his absence.”

The team will also be relying on their strong defensive unit to keep Dortmund’s potent attack at bay. The German side has been in impressive form this season, and their passionate home crowd is expected to create a hostile atmosphere for the PSG players.
