No team in the Champions League wants to face Real Madrid in the knockout stages, as they know that the Spanish giants perform at a much higher level than the rest of the competition.
A popular Twitter account for Paris Saint-Germain posted a tweet showing the possible opponents that the French club could face in the Champions League round of 16. The account also asked its followers which team they would prefer to face in the tie.
The response was overwhelming, with the majority of fans saying that they did not want to face Real Madrid. They believe that the most likely outcome would be a Madrid victory, especially given PSG’s poor form this season.
The only team that fans would not mind facing is Barcelona, who are currently in the midst of a difficult internal crisis. The Catalan club are far from the top of La Liga and have shown weakness in the Champions League group stage.
It is worth noting that the round of 16 ties will not be played until February, so the form of the teams could change significantly in the coming months. Injuries could also play a role in the outcome of the ties.
In contrast to PSG, Real Madrid are not concerned about their round of 16 opponent. They believe that the other teams should be the ones worried.
