- Paris Saint-Germain have been given the name of their opponent in the Champions League Round of 16: Bayern Munich. The club from the French capital has been drawn in hat two, but it is a difficult draw…
Paris Saint-Germain could have expected something heavy. And they were served. The French champions finished second in Group H behind Benfica and were in the thick of the draw for the Champions League round of 16, which took place in Nyon (Switzerland) on Monday.
The beauty between PSG and Bayern
In the next round, the club from the French capital will face Bayern Munich! One of the toughest opponents for the Parisians, who had quickly avoided Manchester City and Real Madrid. But with so many German teams in the second hat, the Parisian team had little choice during this ceremony.
Paris is no stranger to a club that has crossed swords with the Roten on several occasions in recent years. The Rekordmeister had put an end to the dream of the band of Thomas Tuchel in the final of the 2019-2020 edition (1-0) before being eliminated, the following season, by the partners of Kylian Mbappé, then managed by Mauricio Pochettino, in the quarterfinals (2-3, 1-0).
The remake of the last final
In the other matches, there will be a huge clash between Liverpool and Real Madrid. The two teams, who met in the final last May, will be settling scores earlier in the season. Manchester City have been spared a clash with RB Leipzig, while AC Milan and Inter will face Tottenham and Porto respectively. Chelsea will have to beat Borussia Dortmund to reach the quarter-finals. These are promising fixtures!
