We have a cracker in the Champions League this week as Paris Saint-Germain face Borussia Dortmund in Group F of the Champions League.
PSG are coming into this game in what has been an almost permanent state for the club over the course of the past few seasons. The Parisians boast a wealth of talent in their ranks but there is so much inconsistency and, at times, incoherence surrounding the product on the pitch that it makes them wildly unpredictable.
They've had a pretty mixed start to the season as they find themselves 5th in Ligue 1 with two wins, two draws and one loss from their first five games of the season.
Not what you'd expect from a side backed by an incomparable wealth of resources relative to their competition all while harbouring the world's best player in their squad, but this is largely what we have come to expect of PSG since the Qatari takeover over a decade ago.
After two draws to kick off the season Luis Enrique's side looked like they were beginning to get into their groove with big wins over Lens and Lyon, but those results were followed up with a 2-3 home defeat to Nice this past weekend in a game they fell 1-3 down in before Kylian Mbappé reduced the deficit late on.
It's starting to feel as though PSG will never realise their potential as a club and are almost destined to fall short of ever becoming a side that dominates on the European stage, let alone a side that actually challenges consistently for the crown.
There's still plenty of time for PSG to get into gear and a big win here would do them wonders, but there are no doubt serious questions surrounding Luis Enrque's side for this game.
Borussia Dortmund are coming into this game in an even more concerning position than their opponents.
Following the painful end to last season that saw them "bottle", as is so often exclaimed, the league title on the final day of the campaign the German side have looked wholly unconvincing this season.
Edin Terzić's side have won two and drawn two of their first four games of the season and sit 7th in the Bundesliga, but they've performed very questionable in almost all of those encounters.
Their most recent game saw them run out 4-2 winners away at Freiburg at the weekend but they were helped massively by a red card for Freiburg in the 82nd minute, with the scores level at 2-2, before two late goals sealed the three points.
There's currently a lot of pressure on manager Terzić as many feel he's failing to extract the best out of the talent at his disposal so performances need to improve sharply.
They're generally strong in Europe even if their league form is short of where they want it to be and a win in Paris this week would be so gargantuan for morale it could have a transformative effect on their season.
They're by no means the favourites but it's a perfectly winnable fixture for the Bundesliga outfit.
For our PSG vs. Borussia Dortmund prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
