UEFA Champions League 2015/16 is about to enter the second round. Two football giants will face each other to secure a quarter final spot. Paris Saint-Germain, the current French Ligue 1 champions will host Chelsea, the current English Premier League champions, at Parc des Princes.
Observers believe that both teams are equal in term of players’ qualities. So I guess the team with stronger spirits will push themselves to UCL quarter final. Which team would that be?
Laurent Blanc’s PSG are a runaway leaders at Ligue 1 with 70 points, a massive difference with second place AS Monaco’s 46 points. While Chelsea are standing at the lower half of Premier League table, as low as 12th place.
It looks like PSG will go through to quarter final. Eh?
Chelsea’s spirits are on high as well after beating relegation strugglers Newcastle United last weekend. Interim manager Guus Hiddink knows how to handle the Blues boys.
But still, I think PSG will win this first leg. Because they are playing at home. And because some rumours say that Captain John Terry will not be able to play, along with the injured Zouma, at the center halves of Chelsea’s starting eleven. While Blanc has the luxury to start with Angel di Maria, Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic up front.
