Premier League leaders Chelsea will host French champions PSG at Stamford Bridge in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 encounter.

As Laurent Blanc’s Ligue 1 title-challengers travel to London, with the tie evenly balanced at 1-1 from the first leg, there will be plenty of attacking talent on display.

This includes Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani, who is a best priced 12/5 with William Hill to strike anytime in 90 minutes, having done so in the first leg.

The ferocious finisher is enjoying his most prolific campaign in the Champions League, having netted six goals in his seven outings this term.

Clinical Cavani’s strike partner Zlatan Ibrahimovic will once again contest his former boss Jose Mourinho, having worked under the Portuguese manager at Inter Milan.

The sensational Swedish striker is available at 13/2 with Coral to open proceedings against the Blues at Stamford Bridge.

Blues club legend Didier Drogba has struck five times in seven competitive games against the Paris outfit during his career, and is 9/5 with William Hill to bag another anytime in 90 minutes.

Mourinho will be hoping to yet again work his European magic, with his brilliant Blues one of only three teams to still remain unbeaten at this stage, alongside Porto and reigning champions Real Madrid.

The hosts are even-money with Bet365 to toppled their French opposition, having never been beaten by a French club in this competition before.

Chelsea will be extremely confident, after reaching the knock-out stages for the 11th time in the last 12 seasons, and the Blues having edged past the Parisians on away goals last season.

Mourinho knows what it takes to overcome French opposition, as he holds a dominant record of just a single defeat to a club from France in his last 16 Champions League games during a successful managerial career.

The former Inter, Porto and Madrid boss will be hoping his star striker Diego Costa can continue his rampant run in front of goal this term, and add to his 18 goals in all competitions.

Chelsea’s sublime Spain international is 13/10 with Bet365 to fire in another during 90 minutes in London.

The battling Blues have scored in each of their last 18 Champions League home games, and will look to seal progression against PSG, having not failed to score at Stamford Bridge since April 2011.
