Five-year Chelsea defender backs PSG to win first leg, but...

Frank Leboeuf has predicted that the French side will record victory at home, but that his former club can make up the deficit in the return leg.

Chelsea take on Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, with the Ligue 1 leaders sure to be a tough test for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Former Blues defender Frank Leboeuf, who stepped out at Stamford Bridge between 1996 and 2001, has been speaking about the last eight glamour tie.

The retired defender believes that the games will both be close, but that his former charges will progress through to the semi-finals.

“I see a 1-0 victory for PSG at the Parc des Princes then success and qualification for Chelsea in the second leg,” he told RMC.

“But it is the heart that speaks.”

The Blues recorded an emphatic 6-0 victory over Premier League title rivals Arsenal on Saturday.

They progressed to this stage of the European competition by overcoming Roberto Mancini’s Galatasaray in the last 16.
