PSG could face tough UCL draw

Paris Saint-Germain face a potentially tough draw in the UEFA Champions League last-16, with the likes of Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund all lying in wait.

However, the Parisians also could get arguably a more favourable draw against either Leicester City or Napoli. The English champions are struggling domestically and suffered a 5-0 defeat to Porto in their last match of the UCL group stages.

Meanwhile, Napoli trail Juventus by eight points in Serie A and have dropped points in five of their last 10 matches in all competitions. In addition, it appears the Blues are missing the deadly presence in attack of Gonzalo Higuain who left for Juventus.

PSG finished second in Group A of the tournament after a surprise 2-2 draw at home in their last match against Ludogorets that handed Arsenal first place. As a result, the Unai Emery-coached outfit can only draw one of these six teams for finishing in second place.

The draw for the last-16 of will be held on 12 December in Switzerland. Regardless of who they may draw to face, the French champions will play the first leg at home at the Parc des Princes in February of next year.
