Competition: Champions League
Market: Chelsea and PSG to draw
Odds: 21/10 @ William Hill
French Ligue 1 holders Paris Saint-Germain travel to face Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tonight for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash, and are favourites to progress to the quarter-finals after having won at home in the first leg.
PSG have been resting many first-team players for this week’s clash, and shone in the first leg at the Parc des Princes, winning 2-1. They are on course to retain their league title in quick time, but their recent form in the division might give Chelsea hope of coming away with a positive result.
The French club have dropped points in three of their last four league games, and manager Laurent Blanc has been critical of his side’s performances. Chelsea will be desperate to take advantage, as they’re enjoying a long unbeaten run in the Premier League under interim manager Guus Hiddink, but tonight’s game could be too close to call.
PSG only need to avoid defeat to progress and they will be playing for a draw as a result. They have drawn two of their last four, while Chelsea have been held in three of their last six in the Premier League. As a result, William Hill are giving odds of 21/10 for the two sides to play out a stalemate which would see PSG into the quarters.
