The possible opponents of PSG and Lille


Qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League, Lille and PSG now know their potential opponents. The draw will take place on Monday.

The table is not yet complete, since we still have to wait the result of Atalanta-Villarreal which will be played on Thursday. But we can see much more clearly on the stage of the knockout stages of the Champions League, which will concern Lille and Paris Saint-Germain, and whose draw will take place on Monday noon.

Lille wants to avoid Chelsea

By winning brilliantly in Wolfsburg (1-3), the Losc secured the first place in its group, and a draw a priori more favorable in the round of 16. In the menu offered to the champions of France, it is undoubtedly Chelsea, the winner of the previous edition, which is the team to avoid. It would also be complicated against Atlético de Madrid or Inter Milan. And we should not underestimate the Portuguese clubs, Benfica and Sporting.

Potential opponents of Losc: Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Sporting, Benfica, Villarreal/Atalanta.

PSG can fear the worst

Second in its group, Paris Saint-Germain will not be seeded in the draw for the round of 16. The only good news is that Mauricio Pochettino’s men are guaranteed to avoid Manchester City, which was in their pool. PSG can still expect very heavy, with Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Real Madrid as possible opponents. Ajax, who flew over his group, is also to be feared. There is finally Manchester United Juventus, two giants in difficulty this season, but who have two months to recover before the round of 16.

Potential opponents of PSG: Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Ajax, Manchester United, Juventus.
