The quarter finals of the 2013/14 Champions League has been drawn and for Chelsea's part PSG awaits.
Chelsea managed to avoid Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Instead, it was Paris Saint-Germain that fell on Chelsea's lottery ticket and the first match is to be played in Paris on April 2 and the return in London April 8.
In these two matches John Terry and Gary Cahill will probably have to show their true colours when they butt heads with the great Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. At the other end of the pitch Thiago Silva will be controlling of his defense against rapid counter attacks from players like Eden Hazard and Willian.
The clash of the titans where the current top teams of France and England face off. This match will clearly be won in midfield where both teams are among the best in the world. Thiago motta, Matuidi, Cabaye vs. Lampard, Ramires, Matic.
The clear advantage PSG has is on top since they have much better strikers then Chelsea. Ibrahimovic, Cavani, and Lavezzi vs. Torres (past it), Eto'o (past it), Demba Ba (never had it). Let's not forget that it will also be face off between Lucas and Hazard.
PSG are also better of in central defense with Thiago Silva, Alex, and Marquinhos vs John Terry and Cahill. Chelsea comes out the winner when it comes to the amount of midfielders they have and the fact that they have José Mourinho as a coach.
1 - 0 victory for PSG at home
2 - 1 victory for Chelsea at Home
PSG go through but it will be tough on them, they will have to show the rest of the world that they are not only superstars mixed together and that they are an actual team that has what it takes to go further then usual in the Champions League.
