PSG comfortably finished five points above record-winners Real Madrid in Group A of the UEFA Champions League. They only dropped points once on route to sealing top spot, which included a 3-0 win over Los Blancos.

Having proved their mettle in the group stages, however, PSG must do it all over again in the knockouts. Even one slip up could prove fatal to their title hopes.

The pressure, therefore, will be on Thomas Tuchel’s shoulders to lead the Parisians to a first UEFA Champions League trophy. Winning Ligue 1 is no longer good enough for president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Despite a 4-4 draw for a below-par PSG at Amiens last weekend, though, Tuchel’s squad is in good shape.

The French champions are undefeated in 23 games across all competitions, having won 20 and drawn the other three.

So Borussia Dortmund will have to tread carefully as Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi are all on good form.
