Barcelona’s potential rivals in the next Champions League stage

The Cham­pi­ons League group stage games end­ed on Wednes­day night. This means we already know pos­si­ble clubs that will play against Barcelona in the 1/8 knock­out stage of the com­pe­ti­tion. On Mon­day, the draw from the next stage will take place.

With Barcelona top­ping the Group C, it means the Cata­lan club will a team that end­ed sec­ond in their group table. But one of the rules guid­ing the draw is that a team will not face anoth­er team from the same coun­try or league or group stage. How­ev­er, Real Madrid and Sevil­la who fin­ished sec­ond place on their group will not be paired with Barcelona. Also, Bar­ca will not be paired with Man­ches­ter City because they were in the same group.

Five teams that are pos­si­ble rivals of the Cata­lan club are, Bay­ern Munich, Paris Saint Ger­main, Por­to, Ben­fi­ca and Bay­ern Lev­erkusen.

The draw is expect­ed to take place on Mon­day by 1:00 pm CET.
