Emre Can, the captain of Borussia Dortmund and a former midfielder for Liverpool, thinks each team in Newcastle United’s Champions League group of death has enough talent to advance. The Bundesliga runners-up, previous year’s semifinalist AC Milan, and the current French champions PSG will all compete against the Magpies.

A tougher group could not have been given to Eddie Howe’s team, although each of the four teams is aware of the strengths of the others. On the final day of the previous season, Bayern once again beat Dortmund to the top spot, denying Dortmund the Bundesliga championship.

It implied that Milan would be in Pot 3 and Die Schwarzgelben in Pot 2 of the draw. Mats Hummels, a veteran defender for Dortmund, didn’t waste any time in expressing his thoughts following the draw.

On X, now known as Twitter, Hummels posted, “What a group – here we go.” The opinion of his fellow German international was mirrored by midfielder Can.

The BVB skipper told WDR1, “We definitely got into the strongest of all the groups.” “Every team has what it takes to go to the elimination round.

“That is the aim. We have challenging tasks ahead of us, but we are also not the ideal opponent for the other teams.

Newcastle will undoubtedly exert every effort to avoid becoming a dream opponent for any of their group opponents, with Dortmund chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke stating the requirements for success.

He remarked, “Our group is without a doubt the most challenging, a terrific group. “However, we’ll accept it. We’ll be up against three world-class opponents. We expect our team to perform above and above the norm in order to survive in this group.

The head coach of Dortmund, Edin Terzic, stated: “This group is a tremendous challenge. A challenge that we eagerly anticipate and are taking on with all of our might. We have three formidable opponents in Newcastle United, AC Milan, and Paris St. Germain. Even if that has changed, we still have high hopes for the Champions League and want to go to the knockout round.
