PSG Are Set To Learn Their Champions League Fate Today & Will More Than Likely Have To Do It The Hard Way


The difference between finishing first and second in a Champions League group is vast. The level of quality a club will face in the last-16 by finishing as runner-up is enormous. And we will potentially find that out this morning.

The 3-1 defeat to Barcelona last week meant that they went through as group winners. Having took the lead and knowing that anything but a defeat would give us that accolade, we were unable to do it.

So, there is a strong possibility we will face one of the major European heavyweights such as Bayern Munich, Chelsea and the European champions Real Madrid. It also means that the first-leg will be played at home which is another potential disadvantage.

If we are to proceed into the last-eight for a third successive year, we will more than likely have to do it the hard way.

Here is a list of the clubs in the hat. We will not be drawn against Monaco due to country protection seeding or Barcelona having faced them in the group.

Group winners:

Atletico Madrid (ESP)

Real Madrid CF (ESP)

AS Monaco FC (FRA)

Borussia Dortmund (GER)

FC Bayern Munich (GER)

FC Barcelona (ESP)

Chelsea (ENG)

FC Porto (POR)


Juventus (ITA)

FC Basel (SWI)

Bayer Leverkusen (GER)

Arsenal (ENG)

Manchester City (ENG)

Paris Saint-Germain (FRA)

Schalke (GER)

Shakhtar Donetsk (UKR)
