Blaise Matuidi: 'Paris Saint-Germain confident of beating Chelsea'

Blaise Matuidi claims that PSG are confident of knocking Chelsea out of the Champions League last 16.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi has claimed that he and his teammates are confident of knocking Chelsea out of the Champions League last 16.

The two sides will meet at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday for the second leg of the tie after drawing 1-1 in the French capital three weeks ago.

Despite admitting that Chelsea are likely to provide PSG with a tough clash, Matuidi believes that the Ligue 1 champions are good enough to go through to the quarter-finals.

"We are heading to London with plenty of confidence," he is quoted as saying by

"I think we can still do better in terms of converting our chances into goals, but we're working on it. Wednesday's match will be a very tough one against a team full of confidence. But we're heading there to qualify."

PSG moved temporarily to the top of the Ligue 1 table on Saturday thanks to a 4-1 hammering of Lens.
