The reigning French champions have found themselves pitted against formidable opponents in Group F, including Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan, and Newcastle.
Having secured direct qualification to the group stage as a result of their triumphant domestic campaign last season, PSG now face a tough test against some of Europe’s most renowned clubs. The draw has certainly not been kind to the Parisians, as they are set to lock horns with Borussia Dortmund, a German powerhouse known for their attacking prowess and passionate fanbase.
Furthermore, PSG will also have to contend with the storied history and pedigree of AC Milan, a club that has enjoyed tremendous success in European competitions. The Italian giants, who have a rich tradition of nurturing world-class talent, will undoubtedly provide a stern challenge for PSG’s star-studded squad.
Completing the quartet is Newcastle, a club that recently returned to the Premier League and will be eager to make their mark on the European stage. While they may not possess the same level of experience as their group rivals, the Magpies’ underdog status could make them a dangerous proposition for PSG.
