Manchester United’s struggle to push for top four place in the Premier League could very well transmit into Europa as Jose Mourinho’s men set for an upcoming struggle against Paris Saint-Germain.
The Red Devils’ journey in Europe will be facing a big stumbling block after being drawn to play the French giant starting from next February.
Jose Mourinho’s men have been struggling for consistency this season, but can still hope that they can produce some magical moment in Europe, just like when they beat Juventus earlier this season.
Facing the French outfit will be a tough task indeed, but the hope is that by the time they battle each others, United will already be in a much better form and condition.
As for PSG themselves, they are going to give their all, knowing that the Champions League have been their main target in the last two-three seasons.
Thomas Tuchel is being expected to deliver the best out of their super stars squad, consisting of Neymar, Edinson Cavani, Kylian Mbappe, Marco Veratti and many more.
The tactician will be hoping that all of his important players will be available for both home and away meetings against Man United.
Meanwhile, other potentially mouthwatering contest from the upcoming Champions League last 16 round includes, Atletico Madrid’s match up against Juventus along with Liverpool’s battle against Bayern Munich.
Atletico against Juve could turn into a very rugged and tactical battle which both teams will be more busy in trying to cancel each other out at times.
The Reds’ meeting with Bayern will also be interesting as Jurgen Klopp’s men can’t consider themselves favorite at all, following their poor away form in the competition.
Niko Kovac’s men themselves are not in the best shape yet, but come February, the Bavarians could be getting into their gear and hits their opponent blazing guns.
Complete drawing results for UEFA Champions League last 16 round:
Schalke v Manchester City; Manchester United v Paris Saint Germanin, Atletico Madrid v Juventus; Tottenham Hotspur v Borussia Dortmund; Lyon v Barcelona; Roma v Porto; Liverpool v Bayern Munich; Ajax v Real Madrid.
