The die is cast.

And they were hardly favorable to the Parisians ... Reigning European vice-champion, the capital club will have to ward off its executioner in the final, last August, Bayern Munich.

And this from the quarter-finals, at the beginning of April.

The draw took place this Tuesday, in Nyon (Switzerland).

A full draw, without any form of protection or weighting.

The other seven clubs no doubt hoped to draw FC Porto, admittedly a scorer of Juventus Turin in the 8th, but less impressive than the rest of the pack on paper.

It is the Chelsea of ​​Thomas Tuchel who will rub shoulders with the Dragons, on April 6 or 7 on the first leg and a week later, April 13 or 14, on the return.

Time will tell if this was a good draw for the Blues.

One thing is certain: the draw could have been better for the Reds and Blues.

In fact, it just couldn't have been worse! 

And not just because Bayern Munich are a scarecrow.

Indeed, we already know the full table, until the final on May 29 in Istanbul.

And to invite themselves to the Atatürk stadium, Mauricio Pochettino's players, in case of success against the Bavarian machine, will have to dismiss the winner of the quarter which will oppose Manchester City to Borussia Dortmund.

Obviously, Bayern and City are the two fittest teams on the European scene.

In summary, PSG had a favorable draw last year, with Dortmund, Atalanta and Leipzig before the final.

This time, it will not be the same story for the recent FC Barcelona scorers of Lionel Messi (4-1 in the first leg, 1-1 in the return) ...
