Champions League – Draw: PSG face Bayern Munich in the round of 16

Paris could wait heavy. From this point of view, we can say that it has been served. PSG will have to battle Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16, according to the draw held this Monday in Nyon, with the first leg at the Parc des Princes before returning to Germany.

He therefore sacked the Bavarian club, who completed the group stage at full board with six wins from six games to lend even more credence to their European title ambitions.

How PSG let first place slip away

Despite the lost final in 2020 in Lisbon, the Parisians not only have bad memories against Bayern.

This clash already promises to be one of the most anticipated of these round of 16. You won’t be the only one. On the program there will be a remake of last season’s final between Real Madrid and Liverpool, won by the Spanish club (1-0). Manchester City, semi-finalist last spring, inherited a more affordable squad on paper, but Josep Guardiola’s men will have to be wary of Christopher Nkunku’s RB Leipzig. Crowned European champion in 2021 under the direction of Thomas Tuchel, fired last September, Chelsea will face Borussia Dortmund.
