Hiddink: “We are still in the race”

Interim Chelsea boss believes that his side are still in with a chance of reaching the quarter finals of the Champions League, despite losing 2-1 against PSG. As Chelsea did score at the Parcs des Princes, they will have an advantage when the teams play at Stamford Bridge and Hiddink feels that this is “important”.

He told BT Sport, “The result is negative but on the other hand an away goal is important. It hurt a bit because the team was playing decently against a team with capacity to play. But we are still in the race.

“We were not lethal enough at times but otherwise we can be relatively happy. We didn’t moan a lot about the absence of players and the rest got the confidence and did what they were asked.

“Over two legs, it is important you have the away goal. If we can do it at Stamford Bridge then a defeat doesn’t count so much.”
