Chelsea look to home form against PSG

Chelsea will be hoping their outstanding home record will be enough to help them overturn a two-goal deficit when they play Paris St Germain in the quarterfinal, second-leg of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Manager Jose Mourinho has never lost a quarter-final tie in the competition, in his time with Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, and is desperate not to break that run at Stamford Bridge.

Their 3-1 defeat in Paris last week, when a last-minute goal gave PSG a two-goal cushion, made life difficult for the English side, who won the Champions League in 2012.

But it is their home form – with 15 wins out of 17 in the league this season – that gives Chelsea fans most hope.

“It’s the worst time of the season to get results like this but we are a different team at Stamford Bridge with our fans behind us,” midfielder Andreas Schuerrle said. “It will be difficult but it is not impossible.”
