Thomas Müller is back… and he’s less confident

Just after the draw, Thomas Müller reacted on social networks, as the reunion with PSG.

“Hello Paris, once again. Two great teams with great players. Unfortunately, one of them will not be able to go to the next round. This time, no goodbye. I have great respect for Paris, this will be a great duel. See you next year,” commented the Bayern player.

More information here.

You can find the Europa League draw from 1 p.m.

The draw takes place here, Nantes, Rennes and Monaco are concerned on the French side.

Luis Campos takes stock of the transfer window before the 8th against Bayern

Can we consider reinforcements in the transfer window? “The World Cup conditions a lot of our studies on the transfer window”, explains Luis Campos, who mentions in particular possible injuries during the weeks of absence of the players. “We are ready for whatever may happen in the World Cup afterwards, if necessary go to the winter transfer window.”

Luis Campos: “We are very confident and positive”

“When I saw the studies of certain mathematicians, I understood that it was a high probability, I had spoken about it with a few players after the match in Turin, explains Luis Campos, at the microphone of RMC Sport. It will be two great games between two very big teams in European football. We are very confident and positive. We can play two great games to reach the quarter-finals. For us, it’s a great opportunity to show Europe a good show. and to the world that we are the best team in the world. We have a great coach, great players, we play well.”

Remember that the matches will take place in almost 100 days

With a World Cup and a transfer window in the middle, it is therefore difficult to draw definitive lessons.

PSG, “a bit of Bayern’s pet peeve”

“It’s a very nice poster, explains “Polo Breitner”, a specialist in German football well known to After listeners. Let’s not forget that PSG has been a bit of Bayern’s pet peeve in recent years. It’s still not a good draw to face PSG, even if the form of the moment is on Bayern’s side. At the moment T, this Bayern is difficult to take for PSG, but we’ll see in February.”

Bayern, only team with 6 wins in the first round

In a strong group, with in particular Barça which fell by the wayside and Inter which finished second.

Bayern, a hell of a draw

but beware, Bayern is not necessarily the ogre that PSG faced in the 2020 Champions League final, with a 1-0 defeat in the final. Lewandowski’s departure has yet to be fully replaced.


And Inter-Porto, sacred draw.

Eintracht Frankfurt-Naples

Big piece for Kolo Muani’s team.

AC Milan-Tottenham

It was the best draw for PSG which has just taken off. Shame.

Liverpool-Real Madrid

Another big cador avoided for PSG.


This is the second poster and not the most prestigious.

Let’s go for the draw

The first poster: Leipzig-Manchester City!

And here is the reminder of the rules, which you already know by the way

PSG will play the first leg at home and the return away (knowing that the away goal rule is no longer applied).

And here is Giorgio Marchetti on the stage

He is the one who oversees the draws. And so he to whom we owed the huge fiasco of the draw of the 8th last year: remember, we had to redo the draw and PSG, which had first drawn Manchester united, found itself facing Real Madrid, for the result that we know.

Two distinguished guests for the draw

There will be Hamit Altintop and Andrei Archavine. But for now, time for the presentation of the teams, which you know: there will be PSG, but in a dangerous second place, and no OM, after a last cruel group match.

A draw to follow live on RMC SPORT 1

And of course live commentary on the RMC Sport website and app.

As a reminder the qualified in eighth

The seeded ones: Bayern, Benfica, Chelsea, Manchester City, Napoli, Porto, Real Madrid, Tottenham

Non-seeds: PSG, Club Brugge, Borussia Dortmund, Frankfurt, Inter, Leipzig, Liverpool and AC Milan.

PSG will necessarily face a seeded team, the odds depend a lot on the other teams: a team cannot face a team from its country or a team from its group stage: therefore, PSG cannot face Benfica. This rule also greatly limits the opponents for the English and German clubs, which are present in force for these eighths, while there is only one Spanish club.

After the Champions League, place for the Europa League

Three French clubs are concerned, because they finished second in their Europa League group, they are Rennes, Monaco and Nantes and they will be heavy since they will be opposed to the teams who finished third in their Ligue des champions. The draw will take place at 1 p.m.

Pot 1 (second in Europa League group) : Manchester United, Midtjylland, Monaco, NantesPSV, reindeerAS Roma, Union Berlin

Pot 2 (Champions League group third) : Ajax, FC Barcelona, ​​Juventus, Leverkusen, Salzburg, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Sporting

Luis Campos will be in Nyon

Luis Campos will represent PSG this afternoon for the draw for the knockout stages of the Champions League.


Bayern, the most likely opponent for PSG

According to the account specializing in probabilities @MisterChip, Bayern Munich are the team on which PSG are most likely to fall in the round of 16 (18.1%). Next come Naples (17%), City and Tottenham (14.2%) then Chelsea (13.9%). Real Madrid (11.3%) and Porto (11.2%) are the two teams that PSG are least likely to meet in 8th.

Note that Bayern Munich has a 39.8% chance of crossing paths with Liverpool, which somewhat weighs the probability of having a PSG-Bayern, a remake of the 2020 final, in the round of 16 in a few weeks. .

Finishing second in your group, is it really penalizing for PSG?

Since the last format change of the Champions League, with the return to a single group stage (in 2003-2004), there have been nineteen finals. Of the thirty-eight finalist teams, twenty-nine had finished first in their group and nine were second. A notable difference, which confirms the handicap of PSG for the upcoming deadlines.

But Christophe Galtier’s players can still keep hope alive by noting that among the nine finalists who finished second in their group, six finally won their trophy (Porto in 2004, Inter in 2010, Liverpool in 2005 and 19, the Real Madrid in 2017 and 2018). Knowing that two finals were even played between second groups, in 2010 (Inter-Bayern, 2-0) and 2019 (Liverpool-Tottenham, 2-0).

How to use the print

The sixteen teams qualified for the round of 16 are divided into two groups. That of the top seeds, who finished first in their group (Bayern, Benfica, Chelsea, Manchester City, Naples, Porto, Real Madrid, Tottenham). PSG are in the unseeded pot and will not be able to face Club Brugge, Borussia Dortmund, Frankfurt, Inter, Leipzig, Liverpool and AC Milan.

In accordance with UEFA regulations, the seeded teams will receive in the second leg. Clubs from the same nation cannot play against each other, just like two teams that were placed in the same group.

The best and worst draws for Paris

If they can’t fall on Benfica, Marquinhos’ teammates can fall on Manchester City and Bayern Munich, who are among the teams to avoid. Defending champion and record holder of coronations in the competition (14), Real Madrid is necessarily a team to avoid. Especially since the merengue club has not weakened since its triumph at the Stade de France last spring.

li looks like a tough opponent. Since the start of the season, Luciano Spalletti’s men have been developing attractive and spectacular football. In a favorable scenario, PSG can also hope to fall on Chelsea, Tottenham or Porto. Even if these three teams are not lacking in quality, they seem a notch below the others.

What better draw for PSG? The opinion of our consultants

For Rolland Courbis and Jérôme Rothen, Tottenham would be the most affordable team currently in hat 1.

Hello and welcome on our website

The draw for the knockout stages of the Champions League will take place in Nyon, Switzerland, at UEFA headquarters, from noon. We will know who will stand in the way of PSG on the way to the quarter-finals. Christophe Galtier’s players now find themselves in the second hat, and will probably have to face a European cador in February 2023. In the game of odds, it is Bayern Munich that the Parisians have the best chance of drawing. The reason ? The Bavarian club cannot face one of the three other German clubs – Dortmund, Leipzig and Frankfurt – nor Inter Milan already crossed in the pool, all in the second hat. “Anyway, if we want to go far, we will have to beat big teams,” nuanced Galtier after the victory in Turin, claiming to wait “serenely” for the draw for the round of 16.
