After defeating FC Barcelona and qualifying for the semi-finals of the Champions League, PSG broke their historic points record in the general UEFA club rankings. France continues to gain valuable points to distance itself from its pursuers in the general Nations ranking with a view to keeping 5th place for the seasons to come. Full point.

PSG situation:

Although beaten in the first leg (2-3), PSG managed their comeback against FC Barcelona in the Montjuic Olympic Stadium (1-4), qualifying for the semi-finals against Borussia Dortmund. With this favorable result, PSG added 2,000 more points to its annual total. He also added another 1,000 bonus points, bringing his total for the 2023/24 season to 23,000 points. In the current season, PSG is currently tied for 7th with Barcelona. The first five in front were also qualified for the quarter-finals, the three semi-finalists are all ahead of PSG.

While PSG had equaled its best mark by qualifying for the quarter-finals (113,000 points), the Parisian club took advantage of this qualification to beat its historic record in the general classification of clubs over the last five seasons, carrying the highest mark highest ever recorded by a French club in this ranking at 116,000 points. PSG is a solid 4th in the general ranking, far from the podium (14,000 points behind Real Madrid, 3rd) and with a little lead to hold this place until the end of the season, due to the elimination of Liverpool against Atalanta Bergamo.

Behind, all the pursuers are eliminated, Paris will be 7th at best. PSG, on the other hand, is still far from its record in this ranking (229,000 points established in 2021/22) but would get closer if it manages to win both rounds and reach the final (5,000 potential points). With a presence in the final, PSG could equal its record (2,000 potential points). With a victory in the final, PSG would shatter their record by collecting 12,000 bonus points. But we are still very, very far away…

In overtime, nothing was scored despite the pressure from LOSC and on penalties, with two failures, the Northerners took the door.
