Paris Saint-Germain finds themselves in a challenging position regarding their chances to qualify for the UEFA Champions League knockout stages.
The French giants are currently in second place in Group F with six points, ahead of AC Milan (five points) and Newcastle United (six points). Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund holds the top spot with seven points.
Still, PSG controls their destiny. Wins over Newcastle United and Borussia Dortmund allow the Ligue 1 side to punch their ticket to the round of 16. Former PSG and current Bayern Munich manager Thoms Tuchel believes the Parisians will get through.
“I watched Milan-PSG because I really liked my years in Paris with this team,” Tuchel told Canal+. “Milan was very strong. It was impressive. But I am convinced that Paris will qualify, even if it is a very tough group.”
Thomas Tuchel : « J’ai regardé Milan-PSG parce que j’aimais beaucoup mes années à Paris avec cette équipe. Milan était très fort, c’était impressionnant. Mais je suis convaincu que Paris va se qualifier, même si c’est un groupe très dur ! » 🇩🇪🗣️

If PSG advances but comes in second place, it sets up a possible matchup against Bayern Munich for a second straight season. Furthermore, it will allow Tuchel to face his former club and get revenge.
Meanwhile, the Parisians would try to get their payback, as the German giants were the ones that sent them packing last year in the round of 16.
