Paris Saint-Germain will finally face Real Madrid in the round of 16 of the Champions League, after an incredible draw.
This time the Paris Saint Germain is well and truly fixed! After an incredible day, and a huge mistake in the first draw, UEFA held a second draw for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Thereby, after initially inheriting from Manchester United, PSG will finally face the Real Madrid. A terrible draw for the capital club, who knew he was in danger after finishing second in his group behind Manchester City. Real were cited among the most formidable potential opponents for PSG, along with Bayern Munich and Liverpool.
Mbappé against his future club?
PSG will therefore challenge the current leader of Liga, carried by a Karim Benzema in a state of grace. The return to France of “KB9” would not be the only highlight of this double confrontation, since Kylian Mbappé will face what could very well be his future club, while Lionel Messi will make his return to Santiago-Bernabeu.
PSG and Real Madrid have already crossed paths in the Champions League on several occasions. The last two times, it was in the round of 16 of the 2017-2018 season, and PSG had been eliminated by Cristiano Ronaldo and his band (3-1, 2-1). In 2019-2020, PSG had taken a small revenge on the Merengues in the group stage (3-0, 2-2).
