One of the brightest prospects in world football is likely to play against the Ligue 1 champions in the first leg of the last-16 match at the Signal Iduna Park.

Thiago Silva is looking forward to the challenge against Erling Haaland in Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night.

Haaland, who joined ‎Die Borussen in January, has continued his fine form from Salsburg, scoring an outstanding nine goals in six games across all competitions.

And, Brazil defender Silva has confirmed he is determined to stop Haaland's sensational scoring streak.

"He scores a lot of goals," Silva told RMC Sport after PSG's enthralling 4-4 draw with Amiens on Saturday. "Nine goals in six games, it's incredible, it's huge.

"I hope that we will be able to be cautious and that he will not score against us, but rather after in the league.

"But for us it's wonderful to play against a player like that, especially since he's just started his career. He is very motivated, but so are PSG."
