PSG vs Chelsea by Rahul
Backing Chelsea this week is good as they have had a decent 1 week rest as compared to most of their opponents. Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas will be extremely happy to be back in the playing 11 after being out with injury for the longest time. This will give them the added edge for tonight where they have a proven striker in Costa in good form while Eden Hazard have been scoring and providing assists to his team. These 2 sides met last year with PSG winning by a score of 3-1; but that was a different Chelsea lineup to this year. One that is more organized, got the right players for teh right roles as well as shown their good recent form as well.
PSG have been struggling especially due to numerous injuries that they are facing to the likes of Aurier, Cabaye, Lavezzi and Motta. There are also major doubts towards Matuidi, Marquinhos and Pastore. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas and Cavani are the only player who is strong and fit in their front line to create an impact; but lacking the solidity in the midfield. Thiago, Luiz and van der Wiel have not been playing their best football on the defensive end. They showed that on the weekend against Caen where they were 2-0 up, while drawing 2-2 finally.
Both teams are likely to score in this high profile encounter, while Chelsea are smaller favorites in my opinion due to the injuries that PSG is facing. This is expected to be a exciting tie, and I expect Chelsea to nick this one, while there will be a lot of goals in this game.
