Finalised the matches of this Tuesday, the FC Barcelona knows four possible rivals to the round of eighth of final of the UEFA Champions League 2019-20
After having done the duties does some weeks, and with the guinda of the victory harvested in front of the Inter of Milan (1-2) to close the phase of groups, the FC Barcelona already knows to his first four possible rivals of face to the eighth of final of the UEFA Champions League 2019-20, after having finalised the respective parties of this Tuesday.
The ones of Ernesto Valverde already were in the following round from before playing in Giuseppe Meazza, and the Tottenham was up to now the only possible rival that already was confirmed for the culés. Now, however, they have appeared three more: Chelsea, Naples and Olympique of Lyon.
Precisely the French group already confronted to the Barça in the eighth of final of the past Champions League, and this course could repeat the duel. The Frenchmen empataron (2-2) this Tuesday in front of the RB Leipzig, the first qualifier of his group, and will be in the following round. Also it will be it Chelsea, although like second of group after the big victory of Valencia in front of the Ajax (0-1), and a Napoli that did the duties in front of the RB Salzburg (4-0) and will be second in the group led by the Liverpool.
The chamber in discord, as we have said, is the Tottenham of José Mourinho, that has remained second in the group of the Bayern Munich, and could see the faces with the group culé in function of what determine the luck. In spite of that lately it has been in low hours and his bad results caused the dismissal of Mauritius Pochettino, the Tottenham is definitely a very dangerous team.
The past season arrived until the final of the League of Champions -that lost in front of the Liverpool- and has in the staff of players 'top' and of big talent as they are Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Are Heung-Min, between many others. If at the end it remained matched with the 'spurs', the Barça would have to walk with a lot of eye in front of the team of 'Mou', to day of today one of the most dangerous that can touch him to the group culé.
The Barça will know to the rest of candidates this Wednesday
It will be necessary to expect to this Wednesday, when they contest the pending parties of the sixth day, to know which are the rest of possible rivals for the culés. The Real Madrid also has remained second of group, but still can not remain matched with his eternal rival. The Barça, on the other hand, already has avoided to confront to 'coconuts' as PSG, Bayern, Manchester City, Liverpool and Juventus when having remained all they first in his respective groups. We will see who are the other candidates and if to the Barça touches him dance, or no, with the ugliest.
