PSG qualify for Round of 16

Paris Saint-Germain have booked their spot in the Round of 16 of the Champions League, with a 5-0 win at home over Anderlecht sealing qualification for Unai Emery’s side after Match Day 4.

Paris’ win, along with Bayern’s triumph away at Celtic, means that the duo cannot be caught by either the Hoops or RSCA.

Paris have won all four of their CL games so far- they’ve scored more goals than any other side in the group stages and are also the only team not to have conceded a goal.

The winner of Group A will in all probably be decided in early December, when the Parisians host Jupp Heynckes’ Bayern on Match Day 6. The Bavarians were coached by Carlo Ancelotti when they lost 3-0 at the Allianz Arena in September, but have turned a corner since Heynckes came on board, and are now looking more like their former unbeatable selves.
