Eleven clubs in the Champions League: Ajax can encounter Paris Saint-Germain

Ajax needed one more point against Besiktas and immediately took three: for the first time since 1995 (!) a Dutch club may call itself group winner in the Champions League. Ajax is already assured of a placed status in the knockout phase. VoetbalPrimeur maps out the follow-up process.
The draw for the eighth finals on Monday 13 December is not too complicated: eight people winners, including Ajax, will be linked to eight numbers two. In addition to Ajax, there are still ten clubs, three of which are already certain of a pool gain: Ajax knows that it is avoiding Manchester City, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Manchester United in the first knockout round. In addition, it cannot hit the number two from its own pool, Sporting Portugal. Paris Saint-Germain is also the only club that is already sure of place two: Ajax could so compete against the Parisian star ensemble.
