Galtier's PSG side could face Osimhen's Napoli in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League after the French giants finished second to Benfica in Group H.

Galtier and Osimhen spent time together once, with the French manager in charge of Lille during the 2019/20 season that the Nigeria international spent at the club.

Now playing for Napoli and finishing top of Group A in the Champions League this season, Osimhen could face Galtier if Napoli are drawn against PSG in the next round.

The PSG manager is also not opposed to the idea as he told RMC Sport that he does not have a particular team he would like to face in the next round just as none of the teams that finished first would want to face them.

Galtier: "Personally, I have no preference for the draw. There are great teams but we can also think that the first ones will want to avoid us.

"But if we go to Naples, I will meet Victor Osimhen and I would be very happy to see him again."

Napoli beat 2019 European champions, Liverpool, to the top spot in Group A of the Champions League while PSG dramatically lost out of finishing top in Group H on the final day.

The Champions League Round of 16 draws is scheduled to hold on Monday, November 7.
