Chelsea vs PSG Odds Background
Guus Hiddink will be without Kurt Zouma because of injury while John Terry will miss this affair after failing to fully recover from a hamstring injury that he sustained in the win over Newcastle United last month. Pedro may miss this matchup as well with a hamstring issue. Diego Costa will be back on the pitch despite sitting out Chelsea’s 1-1 league draw at home to Stoke on Saturday with a minor tendon injury.
Chelsea coach Hiddink: “We will need to be angry from the start on Wednesday, but in a controlled way. The players must be fully concentrated because we are playing a class team and they will punish you if you start sloppy. “In those big games, you cannot guarantee that players won’t make errors, but regarding the concentration level and the attention level, that’s automatic – I don’t have any fear of that.”
PSG manager Blanc: “Despite the score, there are positives tonight. The match went as we’d planned, we rested players and made changes when we’d planned. The squad responded well and we can be happy not to have any new injuries ahead of the Chelsea match. “On Sunday, we turn our attentions to the Chelsea match. Everyone is waiting for that game. We will do what we can to prepare for a big game on Wednesday.”
Chelsea (4-1-2) has gone 1-1-2 away from home this season and will lose this match by a goal against a superior PSG (5-1-1) team that has gone 3-1-0 at home this season. While both teams are averaging 2.0 goals per game, PSG is giving up just 0.3 goals per contest compared to Chelsea’s 0.7 goals allowed per contest.
