Here are the confirmed teams as Chelsea take on PSG in the Champions League.

Chelsea head into the Champions League clash against PSG as the slight favourites due to their home advantage. The Blues fought well in the first leg to keep level in the tie and to grab themselves a vital away goal, which could be crucial by the end of the evening. Chelsea have good experience all over their team, which will tell if things get tense over the course of the game. Jose Mourinho has been embroiled in a war of words against Laurent Blanc in the build up to this game and now his side have to go out and back him up.

PSG are in decent form domestically though they are chasing down Lyon at the top of Ligue One. They have several players who can make the difference in an attacking sense over the course of this game. They also have the returning David Luiz who will be looking to make a point to his former players, justifying his move and his controversial price tag, which accompanied him when he headed over to France to link up with the Paris giants.
