This is a whole lot of fun. When the Champions League draw made ‘efka’ into the group of death, all the fans were hoping it would be a thrilling drama until the end. And yes it is.
Dortmund, PSG, AC Milan, Newcastle. Definitely the toughest group in the Champions League. There is no outsider in Group F who is foreordained to finish fourth. All teams can and want to think about progressing to the spring part.
Paradoxically, he started the group best from the fourth basket. Although Newcastle survived several chances in Milan, they took away a valuable point. But then PSG was beaten 4:1 at home and was first in the table after two rounds.
That PSG started alternately. Although they beat Dortmund, they then lost in Newcastle. However, after a home win over AC Milan, they moved to the top of the group. The Rossoneri did not start the group well, drawing 0-0 twice and losing 0-3 to PSG, without a goal scored, leaving them in last place after the third round.
And Borussia? She is experiencing a great revival. After a bad start, a defeat to PSG and a draw with Milan, they were able to beat Newcastle on their ground. And that brings us to yesterday’s round, which messed everything up.
Dortmund beat The Magpies again at home and jumped to the top of the table with seven points. The Parisians, on the other hand, lost to AC Milan and fell to second place with six points. The win saw the Nerrazuri jump to third place with five points, while Newcastle dropped to last place with four points.
Who will advance?
At the moment, the closest to progress is Borussia, who were last with one point after two rounds and it definitely did not look like progress. What other matches will be played?
You can’t even really tell if someone has a lighter lot on paper. Dortmund is waiting for AC Milan at San Siro and will close the group at home with PSG, where they can decide. If the yellow and black would bring victory from Italy, they are done.
PSG absolutely need to beat Newcastle at home or things will look bleak for them. They travel to Dortmund in the last round. AC Milan may have the best composition of opponents. He challenges Dortmund at home and then goes to Newcastle.
If Newcastle want to think about progressing to the spring part of the Champions League, they must not lose in Paris. And then the match with AC Milan would be extremely interesting.
