Uncompromising, Bayern and Chelsea tamed Lazio (2-1) and Atlético (2-0) on Wednesday in the eighth return of the Champions League, completing the cast of the quarters before the draw on Friday, where Munich and Londoners will be heavyweights heavy to avoid for Paris SG.

At the end of these last two confrontations, the eight qualified teams are known and whatever happens, the Parisians will have a lot to do in the quarter-finals next month (6-7 and 13-14 April).

Apart from perhaps FC Porto, more affordable on paper, potential opponents are full of talented players, such as Robert Lewandowski’s Bayern or Erling Haaland’s Dortmund, and star coaches: Pep Guardiola in Manchester City, Zinédine Zidane at Real Madrid, Jürgen Klopp in Liverpool or even Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel, the latter being likely to cross paths with PSG who had unceremoniously ousted him at the end of December.

Besides, does he dream of facing Paris? “I’m not sure, I’m not sure. They are very, very strong, I know them well,” smiled the German coach at the microphone of RMC Sport.
