UEFA Champions League

Opinion: 2 Club Chelsea Would Hope To Avoid In The Round 16 As To Retain Their UCL Title

As a result, even though Chelsea finished second in Group H, many teams would prefer not to face them in the Champions League knockout stages.

In order to win their second Champions League trophy in a row, the reigning champions had a fantastic run on the road. For the 2020/21 season, they won the Champions League with a 4-0 win over Atletico Madrid, FC Porto, Real Madrid, and Manchester City in the final.

Although Thomas Tuchel's team would like to retain their title this season, it is becoming increasingly difficult to do so. Chelsea has no idea who they'll face in the last 16 of the competition. In order to win the Champions League again this year, they must avoid certain opponents.

If Chelsea want to retain their Champions League crown this season, they'll need to avoid facing either Bayern Munich or Real Madrid in the last 16.

2. Manchester City

Chelsea and Manchester City were both beaten by Thomas Tuchel's team to win the Champions League last year. The Thomas Tuchel team won 1–0 in a nail-biter of a game.

There's no doubt that Pep Guardiola's team will be crowned champions again this season. It was a good showing in the group stage for them. They came out on top in Group A, beating out French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea's victory in the Champions League final last season isn't comparable to Tuchel's three consecutive victories over Manchester City in the Premier League. In the Premier League, Chelsea has already lost to Manchester City.

This season, any team could put an end to Chelsea's Champions League hopes, but Manchester City could do so if the two teams meet in the tournament's knockout stages.

2nd place is Bayern Munich

In this year's Champions League, more than just Manchester City will play a role in the final outcome. Several people believe Bayern Munich will win.

This team appears to be Europe's best right now, as they have won all six of their group games and amassed a total of 18 points. After winning the trophy in 2020, they hope to do it again this year.

Which of these two teams do you think Chelsea can win in any of the Champions League knockout stages this season if they face each other?
