Hot Champions League Action: PSG vs. ChelseaPublished February 16, 2016 by Sol FH
The Blues travel to Paris to take on PSG at the Parc des Princes live at 19:45 GMT.
The Quarter Finals are on the line for the remaining 16 teams still in the Champions League. Even after a horrible end to Jose Mourinho’s career with Chelsea, he did manage to lead them to the Champions League knockout stages as the winners of their group. Whether or not a round of 16 tie with Paris Saint-Germain was what the Blues wanted, punters around the world now have a repeat of last year’s matches, which went to PSG on away goals after the teams tied both games in 2014/15.
PSG vs Chelsea Team News
PSG will be calling upon the services of Captain Thiago Silva, Zlatan Ibrahimović, and Thiago Motta, after the three were rested on Saturday’s draw with Lille, so they would be ready for tonight. They will be without Serge Aurier, who is suspended and Marco Verratti who will not get the start but could be a substitution later on.
PSG are unbeaten in their last 23 matches and prior to the scoreless draw with Lille, they won 17-straight.
Despite a brutal league season, the Blues are in good form as of late, but they will be without John Terry, which is a huge blow. Some good news for Chelsea, Oscar is back and is ready to fill in wherever needed.
Since bidding Mourinho farewell, the Blues are on a 12-match unbeaten streak. Still on a high after crushing Newcastle 5-1 over the weekend, Chelsea will need to play strong and get revenge for last year’s loss to PSG in the same round.
