Are PSG's dreams at risk again?

Are PSG's dreams at risk again?

A 1:1 draw with Newcastle, snatched out in injury time with a controversial penalty, significantly complicated life for PSG in a real group of death, which fully confirmed their status!

Back at the end of August, it became clear that PSG, Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle, who were in the same quartet F, would play twelve unforgettable matches, and until the last round they would fight for access to the playoffs. Surprisingly, the Black-and-Yellows were the first to complete the maximum task. After the collapse of PSG and a home draw with Milan, Terzic's men rallied and scored three wins in a row, virtually guaranteeing themselves first position.

Dortmund can lose it only in one case - if in two weeks they lose to PSG at home. It is in this scenario that the European season for PSG will be saved. It seemed that after a 3:0 win over Milan in the third round, the Parisians would easily reach the round of 16, but the defeat at San Siro and a difficult draw with Newcastle made life extremely difficult for Luis Enrique's charges.

Now they have seven points, and Newcastle and Milan have five each, and they will play each other in the sixth round. This is why PSG cannot finish last, but third with relegation to the Europa League - why not? For such a scenario to come true, the French must fail to win in Dortmund along with a victory for Newcastle. Or three points for Milan and a guaranteed defeat for Mbappe and company.

Let us remind you that in the next Euroseason there will be no such groups of death. In accordance with the new regulations, thirty-six participants in the main draw of the Champions League will form a single standings and will play games with teams that are similar in rating. In this situation, the number of matches at the level of Milan - Borussia Dortmund and PSG - Newcastle will increase, not only in the spring, but also in the fall.

In the meantime, the Parisian giants risk failing again in the Champions League and not even reaching the last 16. It is unlikely that this will lead to the resignation of Luis Enrique and a change in the course of development, but Mbappe and other superstars will once again think about whether they need such humiliation, or whether it is better to move to luckier clubs and with a winning mentality.
