If Lens, who does not have points in UEFA, will inherit strong opponents in the next Champions League, then Paris Saint-Germain, who will soon become the French champion, may also fall into a difficult group.
Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham, Juventus, Roma and even Ajax, a good handful of teams from the top 15 of the UEFA club standings will miss out on next fall’s Champions League. This will make the next edition more open, even if the group stage draw, which will not spare RC Lens (which has the minimum UEFA points), may present a difficult group in Paris Saint-Germain.
Soon, the Parisians, champions of France, will be placed at the top of the seed, along with the European Cup winners and 5 other champions. Roma or Sevilla (as Europa League winners), as well as Benfica and Feyenoord are 3 teams Les Rouge et Bleu will not face. Inter will replace Feyenoord if they win the Champions League final against Man City.

It is clearly the 2 cap configuration that interests Paris SG. Concern: there is very heavy, with real madrid (which would have gone up to hat 1 if won in C1), the Bayern If the Bundesliga loses on Saturday, Manchester UnitedI’InterI’Atletico And Arsenal ! Only Leipzig and Porto would be good opponents but they are far below Kylian Mbappe and his teammates.

Pot 3 then features a parade of the national champions, Ukraine (Shakhtar), Austria (Salzburg), Croatia (Dinamo Zagreb), Scotland (Rangers) and Serbia (Red Star Belgrade) as well as AC Milan and Lazio. nothing! Last year, Paris Saint-Germain avoided a national champion by pulling Benfica (second place in the Portuguese championship in 2021-2022).
Finally, in the last hat (that of RC Lens and maybe OM if it passes the third qualifying round and then the playoffs), we still find Real Sociedad and especially the new rich Newcastle. The Magpies have a very positive dynamic and really are probably a better team than Chelsea and Tottenham. To avoid!
