C1: PSG’s opponents in 8th, very heavy!


By: Manu Tournoux

The 6th and final day of the Champions League group stage delivered its verdict.

fromIt’s done! At the end of an epic evening, Paris Saint-Germain qualified for the round of 16 of the Champions League by securing a valuable draw in Dortmund (1-1). Paris passes through a small door, but the essential is acquired. And yet… Seeing Kylian Mbappé’s desire to project himself into the final minutes to score a goal synonymous with victory, we understand that second place can also be perceived as a poisoned chalice.

Very heavy stuff on the horizon for PSG!

PSG has the assurance of being opposed to a group leader with this second place. And the pedigree of the best teams in this first round suggests a new shock in the round of 16. Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Real Sociedad, Atlético de Madrid, Manchester City and FC Barcelona are the capital club’s potential opponents.

By finishing in first place, PSG would have been faced with a more affordable opponent on paper: Copenhagen, PSV Eindhoven, Naples, Inter Milan, Lazio Rome, RB Leipzig or FC Porto. In its great European conquest, the Parisian ship will still have to face headwinds.
