PSG will take heavy in the eighth!

What follows after this advertisement

Very mixed feeling this Thursday morning in the ranks of Paris Saint-Germain. Admittedly, the Rouge-et-Bleu have qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League, but they didn’t really give the impression of being a team worthy of the status of big favorite to the final victory that all the observers were kind enough to grant them at the start of the competition.

A big mistake at the very end of the match in Leipzig and a tasteless performance yesterday in Manchester and you get a PSG condemned to be satisfied with the second place in his group. In the next round, the capital club will therefore face a group first. For many, he will be one of the opponents to be avoided, but the Parisians can also be worried.

It looks very complicated

Because if there is still a day to go, Paris already knows four potential opponents, sure to finish in first place in their group: Liverpool, Ajax Amsterdam, Bayern Munich and Manchester United. And that’s not all. Groups D and H are also going to be heavy for Ile-de-France since it will be: Real Madrid or Inter Milan and Chelsea or Juventus.

Among all these big names, the Red Devils, Juventus and Ajax are perhaps the most accessible opponents at first glance. And even. Like what happened in 2019 when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from José Mourinho, a team can transform with the arrival of a new coach. The Old Lady remains a team used to European games.

As for the Lancers, they may have a less flashy squad, but their collective is impressive (they torpedoed Borussia Dortmund 4-0 and 3-1) and they can especially count on the co-top scorer of the competition (Sébastien Haller with 9 goals) and the Brazilian wisp Antony. Finally, formations such as Salzburg, Seville or Wolfsburg can still finish first in group G. Suffice to say that they would be the “easiest” draw. But Lille is currently the leader of this group and nobody wants the Mastiffs to give up on the last day.
