Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink claimed his side can knock PSG out of the Champions League in this round of 16:

“I agree it’s 50-50 for the tie,” said the Dutch coach in the pre-match press conference.

“Paris are building a very strong team, dominating the French league. 

“To become a great club, a team must win the Champions League, and they’re certainly aiming for it. 

“On our side, we’ve been improving since December, but it’ll be a great test to get to the next round.”

He added: “We’re growing. Everyone knows the current situation of Chelsea. We’re improving step by step, with quality players. 

“We are not yet where we want to be, to be able to impose our style of play, but we’ve had a string of games with dominant play from us.”

“So we have to find the answer.”
