After a quite entertaining first leg of the Champions League, Chelsea will have their turn to play host as PSG come to visit managing only to get a 2-2 draw at home. This is the most important competition for both teams and every resource possible will be used in an attempt to ensure qualification to the quarter finals of the competition.

PSG as we have seen a million times before are a team filled with superstars. This team has been dominating the French league and at the current moment in time, it is almost a necessity that they win this game. A lot of investment has been made into this club and if they fail to win then it will be a disaster. The home leg would have added a bit of doubt in the minds of the players and I think away from home things might get harder so I will be interested to see how the superstars handle the pressure on the field come Wednesday night.

Chelsea on the other hand will be feeling the pressure themselves. This team has managed to ruin their Premier League early in the year and now they will be determined to make a deep run in the Champions League. This side will be happy with the first leg since they managed a draw away from home and also got 2 away goals which might have a huge impact in this leg of the tie.

Overall I think that the French champions might be a little too strong, even away from home. I know how good Chelsea can be but they have not been good enough this season for me to bet on them in big matches. PSG are quality and they have showed this many times so I will take them as my pick. We are getting a great price here so I think it is a definite bet I will be putting on a large wager on it.

Pick:
PSG
