For the biggest PSG v Chelsea prices, visit our best odds page.
Both teams will have been pleased to swerve Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid when the Champions League draw was made, with both Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea confident they can now reach the last four of the competition.
The bookies are struggling to split the two teams when it comes to the qualification market and it’s 10/11 choice with bet365 bookmaker, although it might come down to the fact that PSG have two world-class forwards whereas their English opponents are certainly short in that department.
Jose Mourinho expressed his frustration with the lack of firepower as Chelsea went down by a single goal to Crystal Palace on Saturday, with the Blues now heading to France for a tricky assignment against a Paris side who are storming clear at the top of Ligue 1.
PSG are thirteen points clear of Monaco having been unbeaten at Parc des Princes this season and they have conceded the sum total of five goals in fifteen games in front of their own supporters this term.
Paris are a best price 11/10 with Ladbrokes online to claim victory although it might instead be worth backing the sharp-shooting Zlatan Ibrahimovic to find the net, with the Swede having scored an incredible 39 goals this season.
BetVictor go 7/5 about the striker finding the net during Wednesday’s match, while it’s also worth noting that PSG have conceded just one goal in their past six matches, with former Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye slotting into a team and helping to protect a defence marshalled ably by Thiago Silva.
Chelsea’s defence is also solid and Mourinho was full of praise for the likes of Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic on Saturday, although the attacking side of things is currently depleted and Eden Hazard might struggle to weave his magic against this sort of classy opposition.
