The Champions League gets underway once again this week and the knock out phases of the prestigious tournament kicks off with an enticing clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea at the Parc Des Princes on Tuesday night.
PSG Match Betting News
Paris Saint-Germain have not dominated the French Ligue 1 as they were widely expected to this season but the French side are still strong contenders to take the crown by the end of the campaign.
However, the Parisian side’s wealthy owners have their eyes firmly set on conquering Europe and they will expect another good showing in the Champions League this season following a quarter final exit last year.
Standing in the way between PSG and their dreams of a good Champions League run is Chelsea once again and the tie is as tough as it gets for the French giants.
Javier Pastore is a doubt for the clash while Marquinhos, Blaise Matuidi, Serge Aurier, Lucas and Yohan Cabaye will all miss out.
Chelsea Match Betting News
Chelsea are destined to win the Premier League title this season but given manager Jose Mourinho’s winning mentality, he will undoubtedly be going all out to claim victory in the Champions League as well.
Winning in Europe is a completely different kettle of fish though and Chelsea will need to take one game at a time, starting off with a difficult clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.
Chelsea got the better of PSG last season but things are different this time around and the Blues will undoubtedly have to play to their best in order to replicate their feats.
John Obi Mikel is the only injury concern heading into the game and Mourinho will finally be able to call on the services of Loic Remy for the clash.
PSG vs Chelsea Match Prediction
Chelsea managed to see off PSG under dramatic circumstances last season and it would not be a surprise if the tie is a similarly close one this time around as well.
Both teams cannot afford to lose ground in the first leg and as a result, a score draw could be on the cards – an outcome which would be a good one for the Blues.
