follow the outcome of the Champions League group stage

Jostled and tightened over two months because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the group stage of the Football Champions League offers its denouement this Tuesday and tomorrow Wednesday. Nine teams have already qualified for the round of 16, which will take place in 2021: Bayern Munich (group A), Manchester City and Porto (group C), Liverpool (group D), Chelsea and Sevilla (group E), Dortmund ( group F), Barcelona and Juventus (group G). Seven clubs, including PSG or Real Madrid, have yet to validate their ticket.

And because we’re good (or it’s our job, remove the useless phrase), we have summarized all the issues of the week. And that’s all you need to know about PSG Group H.

  • Group H, like “chopping of suspense” (or “hénage à trois”)

No final but two for the group of Manchester United, PSG and RB Leipzig. These three clubs are tied for the lead with nine points. Behind, the Turks of Istanbul Basaksehir occupy the last place with 3 points.

Defeated twice in five games, PSG turned its European season on the positive side last week by winning in Manchester (3-1). Thanks to this success acquired in the last twenty minutes, Neymar’s teammates are in an ideal position. Tuesday, they only need the point of the draw against the weakest team in the pool to play their eighth consecutive round of 16.

Always aim higher, but by closing your eyes, for PSG

In the event of a surprise defeat against Demba Ba’s teammates, PSG would have a final chance to get through this group stage: it would then require a victory for Leipzig or Manchester in the other match. To avoid any miscalculation, the easiest way is still to beat the Istanbul club.

To qualify, RB Leipzig, unhappy semi-finalist this summer in Lisbon, must aim for victory at home against Manchester United or a draw on one condition: that of an unexpected setback for the Parisians against the Turks. Manchester United can afford a draw, regardless of the outcome of PSG.
