PSG’s Road to Champions League Round of 16: Luis Enrique’s Strategy for Success

2023-11-08 05:19:56


The capital club will perhaps not need to wait for the final day to validate its ticket to the round of 16 of C1.

Despite its defeat in Milan (2-1) on Tuesday, PSG is perhaps only 90 minutes away from reaching the round of 16 of the Champions League. For this, Luis Enrique’s players will have to win against Newcastle on November 28, during the fifth day. It will be at the Parc des Princes, where they have already dominated Dortmund (2-0) and AC Milan (3-0). Currently, it is Borussia who are leading the standings in Group F with seven points, ahead of Paris (6 pts), Milan (5) and Newcastle (4). However, a Parisian victory will not be enough to kill the suspense before the final day of the group stage.

The French champions will indeed have to count on BVB. Clearly, Paris will officially be in the 8th round of C1 in the event of a victory against the Magpies and if Milan does not win against Dortmund at the same time. Indeed, even in the event of a draw, Olivier Giroud and his little comrades would be pushed back to three points behind PSG, which has the advantage in direct confrontations (4-2 in total).

If they do not win or Milan win, the Parisians will not be sure of their fate until December 13, after their last match, in Dortmund. Note that if Paris and Dortmund win on November 28, the two clubs will qualify and will compete for first place at Signal Iduna Park.
