The draw of the 1/8 Champions League round has brought interesting results with the match between Barca and PSG, which means that Neymar will reunite Messi.
Barca seems to have to pay the price for losing the top spot to Juventus after a 0-3 home defeat. Because it was not the seed team, the lottery brought Messi and his teammates to meet PSG in the eighth round, a very difficult challenge.
Barca vs PSG is definitely an interesting match, at least based on the closest confrontation between the two teams. They met in the 1/8 round of the Champions League season 2016/17, creating a dramatic chase to the last minute.
Neymar once scored 2 goals for Barca against PSG
The French team seemed to have won the right to continue after a 4-0 victory in the first leg at the Parc des Princes. However, Barcelona created a miraculous comeback with a 6-1 score at the Nou Camp, in which Neymar – currently in PSG – scored 2 goals.
In other matches, the big men like Man City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Liverpool are satisfied with the draw results. However, Liverpool must be especially wary of Leipzig, the team that eliminated MU in the group stage.
Barca is more likely to reunite with Bayern Munich
This football club is more likely to reunite with Bayern Munich in the eighth round of the Champions League this season, while Chelsea easily meets Monchengladbach.
Barca lost heavily to Bayern Munich in August
The second most likely opponent is Dortmund with 21.551%. Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City all have a chance to meet Barcelona with 14%. In August, coach Quique Setien was sacked and Lionel Messi almost left when Barca lost to Bayern 2-8 in the quarterfinals against the German team.
Currently, Barcelona is ranked 9th in La Liga after a poor start, while just losing the top of Group G Champions League by losing to Juventus 0-3 in the last match. Based on calculated numbers, they are most likely to clash with Bayern Munich, causing a phobia of another nightmare.
MU was eliminated from the Champions League after losing to RB Leipzig and had to go down to play in the Europa League. But English football still has 3 representatives in the Champions League and all of them are likely to meet Monchengladbach in the eighth round. Accordingly, each team in the Premier League has about an 18% chance of pairing with the German team. They also have a 16% chance of meeting RB Leipzig.
