PSG vs Chelsea by Gilles

PSG
VS
Chelsea
Match between PSG and Chelsea in Round of 16 in Champions League is replay from last year. Again the teams meet first in Paris. Last year, the game in Paris ended 1-1. In second leg in London, we saw a draw again, but remember that PSG had to play with 10 for more then 60 minutes, after Ibrahimovic took red in 1st half. PSG would even win this match, wasnt it of a penalty for Chelsea far in extra time.

 

This year, PSG is a beast in its own competition, the gap with other teams is to big in quality difference. Also, other teams like Lyon and Marseille play not as good as usual. So PSG hardly find challenging matches in own competition. On the other hand, Chelsea did struggle alot this year. They sacked coach, yet have no sight to play European football next year…

 

PSG is favorite to win this match. I agree if we look back at previous meetings and performance this season. But, I think Chelsea is one of the underrated teams in Champions League at the moment. They only have 2 chances left to win throphies this year, FA Cup and CL. This team was build to bring CL throphy to Stamford Bridge. PSG is aswell desperate in winning CL, the owners want to see more then championship title for his investments in star team. So both teams have big focus trying to win CL, so this is a very important clash for both teams.

 

If we look at group stage CL. Both teams had 13 points. Chelsea had arguably the easier group. Chelsea won all points at home. PSG lost points at home versus Real Madrid, match ended in draw 0-0. Chelsea took only 4 points away, they tied in Kiev 0-0 and lost at Porto 2-0. PSG lost match in Real Madrid 1-0. We see Chelsea struggles as visitors and PSG had trouble with big opponent, Real Madrid.

 

Important missing for Chelsa is Terry, PSG had troubles last week with Aurier.

 

Possible line-up Chelsea: Thibaut Courtois, César Azpilicueta, Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, Abdul Rahman Baba, Willian, John Obi Mikel, Oscar, Cesc Fàbregas, Eden Hazard (Pedro), Diego Costa

 

Out: Zouma (knee), Terry (hamstring, ligament), Matić (suspended)

 

Doubtful: Oscar (calf)

 

Misses next match if booked: none

 

Possible line-up PSG: Kevin Trapp, Marquinhos (Van der Wiel), Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Maxwell, Marco Verratti (Rabiot), Thiago Motta, Blaise Matuidi, Ángel Di María, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas Moura(Cavani)

 

Out: Aurier (disciplinary), Lavezzi (unspecified)

 

Doubtful: Pastore (hamstring)

 

Misses next match if booked: Verratti

 

I think the odds of match are a bit too much in favor of PSG. This game is of much importance for both teams, and they both have very good players. PSG has home advantage, won last year overall matchup and plays very impressive this year in own competition, but lacks enough challenging matches and then struggles against big teams. Chelsea didnt play well this season, but they should not be underestimated that much, there is possiblitiy they fully focus on CL.

 

I expect both teams look each others tatics and form and so on. I think this game will likely end in draw. Score of 0-0 or 1-1 is very likely in my opinion. Becos i like double chance bet and dont feel comfortable with draw I take double chance draw with underdog. My bet for this match is X2 or Double Chance Chelsea to win or Draw. Enjoy watching the game and good luck!
