Every time lacking less so that the FC Barcelona know which teams will form his liguilla in the phase of groups of the Champions League of the season 2020-2021. In fact, this Thursday to the 18:00 hours (peninsular schedule Spanish) will celebrate from Nyon the draw that will determine how remains placed each group and the true is that the ones of Ronald Koeman will not be able to be calm given the quality of the possible rival.
Unlike other seasons, the FC Barcelona will be placed in the bass drum 2, what will leave exposed to the Barcelona group to have to measure in the phase of groups to a champion of European league or even in front of the champion of the last Champions League, the Bayern of Munich. With Real Madrid and Seville (both in the bass drum 1) descartados, the Barcelona will have to measure to Liverpool, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Zenith or Port wine, in addition to to the own Bayern of Munich.
Without place to doubts, the German team is on the paper the hardest rival to the that the FC Barcelona would have to measure , in addition to a rival with morbo by the 2-8 of the past edition of the Champions League. The Bayern of Munich is, besides, one of the big favourites to go back to raise the orejona by what will be the big applicant to remain first of group remain as it remain placed.
Like this it was the licking of the Bayern to the Barça (2-8)
It does not be necessary to forget neither to the Liverpool, that won the Champions League in 2019 after doing happen another night of nightmare to the FC Barcelona, with a historical 4-0 in Anfield that traced back the three goals of the culés in the gone. The 'reds' also are one of the big favourites to raise the entorchado European, probably to the same level that the own Bayern of Munich.
Besides, the FC Barcelona also can cross with other two very hard opponents. The first is the Italian champion: the Juventus of Turín of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Arthur Melo. A group renewed that, with Andrea Pirlo in the bench, expects to recover the competitiveness. On the other hand it is Paris Saint-Germain, that this last season arrived to the final, leaving to Neymar and to Kylian Mbappé to the doors of the crown.
Finally, the Zenith of St. Petersburg and the Port wine would be the most affordable rivals inside the first bass drum if we compare them with the others four teams that can remain placed with the FC Barcelona. Both won the championships of Russia and Portugal, respectively, although the level that present with regard to other groups of the two first bass drums is quite inferior.
There is not quee forget neither that the third bass drum also has to teams of a lot of quality, what could give step to the known as 'groups of the death'. Leipzig, Inter of Milan, Atalanta and Lazio will be in this third bass drum and, especially the two first, can be an authentic headache for the teams of the two first bass drums.
