Chelsea – Paris Saint Germain Champions League Match Preview 11/03/15
After a 1-1 draw in the first between these two teams, this tie is still all to be decided in Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. Chelsea come into this game after a week’s rest, and certainly shouldn’t have any motivational nor any fatigue issues. Mourinho will want to soak up the pressure and hit PSG on the counter. The Blues are ruthless winners in important matches and should manage another victory here. Nemanja Matic somehow managed to pick up an injury in the celebrations after the Captial One Cup victory at Wembley, but there is a small chance that he will miss this match as a result. John Obi Mikel is still out and Oscar has been lacking form of late and could be dropped to the bench with Ramires and Cesc Fabregas in midfield. PSG thumped Lens 4-1 at the weekend with a rotated team, and will come flying out of the blocks in London as they seek the goal they need to have any chance of progressing. Yohan Cabaye is nearing a return from a thigh injury but won’t start this one, with Lucas and Serge Aurier still out. Laurent Blanc could field a similar team as the one that faced Chelsea in Paris, after resting a number of first team players at the weekend.
