TEAM NEWS: CHELSEA V PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN

Apr 08, 2014 Posted Under: News

Samuel Eto’o has been passed fit and starts.

Eden Hazard and Oscar both return to the starting line-up so Andre Schurrle is on the bench. Frank Lampard retains his place from the weekend win over Stoke, the only change to the midfield from the first leg in Paris, and the defence is the one that has been a constant feature of the last two months.

PSG, as expected, move Edinson Cavani into the centre of their attack but rather than late substitute goalscorer Javier Pastore in the starting line-up instead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas Moura is selected. Former Chelsea man Alex also starts.

Chelsea are expected to line up in the following 4-2-3-1 formation:

1 Petr Cech; 2 Branislav Ivanovic, 24 Gary Cahill, 26 John Terry (c), 28 Cesar Azpilicueta; 4 David Luiz, 8 Frank Lampard; 22 Willian, 11 Oscar, 17 Eden Hazard; 29 Samuel Eto’o.

Substitutes: 23 Mark Schwarzer, 3 Ashley Cole, 33 Tomas Kalas, 12 John Mikel Obi, 14 Andre Schurrle, 19 Demba Ba, 9 Fernando Torres.

PSG are expected to line up in the following 4-2-3-1 formation:

Sirigu; Jallet, Alex, Thiago Silva (c), Maxwell; Verratti, Thiago Motta; Lucas, Matuidi, Lavezzi; Cavani.

Subs: Douchez, Marquinhos, Van der Wiel, Cabaye, Digne, Menez, Pastore,
