PSG vs Chelsea by JerryDrake
Last year PSG were very close to reach the CL semifinals when they drew 2-2 at home against Barcelona and then they were leading 1-0 in Catalonia before Pedro scored the equalizer that gave Barcelona the semifinals. They won 4 out of 6 in their group with Olympiakos, Benfica and Anderlecht and then eliminated Bayer Leverkusen in the Round of 16.
This year PSG have the chance for a new try as they could avoid Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern.
Chelsea eliminated Galatasaray after winning their group with Basel, Steaua and Schalke.
If we look at all competitions, PSG won their last 5 home games (CL + Ligue 1), scoring always at least 2 goals. Chelsea won only 1 of their last 6 overall away games (CL + FA Cup + Premier League). They lost both last 2 away games with Aston Villa and Crystal Palace missing the opportunity to keep leading the Premiership.
In their own home leagues, PSG can count on the top 2 strikers of the Ligue 1: Ibrahimovic with 25 goals scored and Cavani with 14 together with Lacazette (Lyon). In the Premier League the best Chelsea scorer is Hazard (midfielder) with 14 followed by Eto'o and Oscar with 8.
Also in Champions League PSG strikers are winning this duel with Chelsea: Ibrahimovic 10, Cavani 4, Torres and Eto'o 3.
Not to forget that in the French league PSG have scored already 71 and conceded only 18, even better than defensive Mourinho's team in England: 62-24. But the English league is superior than the French one.
With three strikers like Ibrahimovic, Cavani and Lavezzi, PSG have everything they need to defeat Chelsea. My correct score: 2-0
