Their first leg clash was evenly poised in Paris, until a brilliant goal from Cavani send PSG into the lead, but John Obi Mikel’s goal give Chelsea much needed away goal advantage as these ties are often decided on slimmest of the margins.

Form Comparison

The loss against PSG in the first is the only defeat for Chelsea since the departure of Jose Mourinho, which stretched to 17 matches in all competitions. Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 10 home matches, with 5 wins and 5 draws. The stats shows that Blues are a better team away from home as they have won 5 out of their last 8 matches, with 2 draws and 1 defeat.

PSG have lost only once in their last 28 matches in all competitions, with 24 of them being wins. Their only defeat came against Lyon away from home on 28th February in the French Ligue 1. They are on due on course to win the French league after gaining a comfortable 23 point lead at the top of the table.

Chelsea: Team News

Kurt Zouma, Pedro Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao are confirmed to miss this tie due to injuries.

John Terry is close to return, but is still doubtful as they are still monitoring the fitness of the Chelsea captain. If he doesn’t pass the fitness test on time, Ivanovic will once again partner Gary Cahil in defence with Baba Rahman coming at left back.

Diego Costa and Fabregas were rested in the weekend clash against Stoke City and both are expected to start on Wednesday.

Chelsea: Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)

Courtois – Rahman, Ivanovic, Cahill, Azplicueta – Mikel, Fabregas – Hazard, Oscar, Willian – Costa.

PSG: Team News

PSG head coach Laurent Blanc will miss both Blaise Matuidi and Marco Veratti due to injury, while Serge Aurier is indefinitely suspended by the club for homophobic remarks on manager Laurent Blanc and his team mates.

PSG: Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)

Trapp – Maxwell, Silva, Luiz, Marquinhos – Motta, Stambaouli, Rabiot – Di Maria, Cavani, Ibrahamovic.

Chelsea vs PSG Head to Head Stats Champions League

This is the third time in a row that PSG and Chelsea are drawn together in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League.

When they met in the last year’s round of 16, PSG knocked out Chelsea by virtue of away goal after drawing in both legs.

In the met in the 2013-14 quarter-finals, the teams shared a win a piece with Chelsea advancing to the semifinals helped by a superior away goal, after aggregate score was tied at 3-3.

Chelsea vs PSG: Qualification Scenario

First Leg: Chelsea 1-2 PSG

>Chelsea qualify if they win with a margin of 2 or more goals.
>If Chelsea win by 2-1, the match goes into extra time and penalty shoot-out.
>PSG need a draw to qualify or loss by a 1 goal margin scoring 2 or more goals.

Chelsea vs PSG: Prediction

Chelsea head-coach Guss Hiddink will be hopeful that his team can turn around the 2-1 defeat at Parc du Princess two weeks ago. But PSG’s one goal advantage enable them to sit back and counter attack, even though an early Chelsea goal will change the complexion of the match.

The Blues could be on the back foot here, considering the fitness of both John Terry and Diego Costa. At the same time PSG have plenty of experience on their side with the likes of Ibrahamovic, Cavani and Angel Di Mari in good form.

I can see this ending it a draw with goals scored at both ends. My Prediction Chelsea 1-1 PSG.
