Match Report: Chelsea FC 2-0 PSG

Soccer - UEFA Champions League - Quarter Final - Second Leg - Chelsea v Paris Saint-Germain - Stamford Bridge

The Blues have done it once again and one of the best comebacks in the tournament’s recent memory since we did it in 2012 against Napoli at Stamford Bridge yet again. Jose Mourinho’s men proved they are never to be underestimated no matter what the deficit might be from the first leg. The players will now feel anything is possible for the rest of the season as we fight for Premier league trophy and run as dark horses for the Champions league trophy from the teams that could complete the top 4 besides us and Real Madrid. Let’s see how this match fared and analyze the actions more..

cfc win over PSG scoreline


Starting 11s:

Chelsea FC (4-2-3-1): Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; David Luiz, Lampard (Ba 66); Hazard (Schurrle 17), Oscar (Torres 80), Willian; Eto’o

PSG (4-3-3): Sirigu; Jallet, Alex, Thiago Silva (c), Maxwell; Verratti (Cabaye 54), Thiago Motta, Matuidi; Lucas (Marquinhos 84), Cavani, Lavezzi (Pastore 72).

Summary: (courtesy of Sky Sports)

Mourinho had gambled on the fitness of Samuel Eto’o, including the striker in his starting XI after missing three games with a hamstring injury.

There were no signs of rustiness from the forward as he saw a shot from Eden Hazard’s excellent low cross deflected behind for a corner, before swiftly closing down Sirigu after a loose touch, only to be too eager and concede a foul on the goalkeeper.

The Blues suffered a significant blow in the 18th minute with Hazard limping out of the action and Schurrle slotting into the wide attacking role vacated by the Belgium international.

Sirigu was called into action again in the 28th minute, fisting the ball behind after plunging across his goal when Frank Lampard’s free-kick from the corner of the box, awarded for Marco Verratti’s pull-back on Oscar, took a wicked deflection off the wall.

But the breakthrough came on 32 minutes when a routine throw from the right flank was flicked on by David Luiz with substitute Schurrle allowed to ghost in unchecked and side-foot home from 12 yards out to spark scenes of jubilation at Stamford Bridge.

There were half-hearted appeals for a penalty soon after as Schurrle collided with Verratti in the box, but referee Pedro Proenca was unimpressed, with PSG breaking down the field and Lucas hammering a shot way over the bar.

Gary Cahill had a glorious opportunity to grab the second for Chelsea before the break, but snatched at the chance in the area after Lampard’s free-kick deflected up into the air off Edinson Cavani’s shoulder and only found the fans behind Sirigu’s goal.

Lucas threw himself to the ground over John Terry’s outstretched leg on the edge of the Chelsea box early in the second half, but again referee Proenca waved play on and elected to take no action against the PSG player.

PSG’s goal then lived a charmed life as Chelsea struck the face of the crossbar twice in as many minutes, with Schurrle’s first-time effort after a neat move the first to rattle the frame, before Oscar’s dipping free-kick also beat Sirigu but not the woodwork.

Petr Cech had to be alert to palm away Ezequiel Lavezzi’s whipped free-kick towards the far post in the 57th minute after Branislav Ivanovic’s foul on Blaise Matuidi, with the defender receiving a booking to rule him out of the semi-final first leg.

Mourinho sent on Ba in place of Lampard with 66 minutes gone, with the striker soon in the action to flick on towards Schurrle, but the German’s shot took a deflection on the way through to Sirigu and was easily gathered.

Cavani fired a dipping effort narrowly over Cech’s bar in the72nd minute and Maxwell was only just off target after Chelsea were sloppy in possession in the middle of the park as a few gaps began to appear with the Blues pushing forward.

Former Newcastle man Yohan Cabaye then played in Cavani with an excellent through-ball, but the striker again failed to test Cech with PSG’s best chance of the night.

Mourinho threw on Fernando Torres for the final 10 minutes and the breakthrough came with just three minutes remaining when Ba was on hand to scoop home from six yards out after a deflected shot from the edge of the box, before Cech made a crucial stop from Marquinhos deep into added time.

    Where are mou critics? The plastic fans who blamed him after first leg lost. What do u
    have to say this time.

    1. Neri Abayomi says

      Everyone have their opinions to give.
      We criticise after a poor performance and we give kudos after a wonderful season defining performance. Up Blues, it is not yet time to celebrate we still have the semis and final to negotiate.

      1. Cfc_obsessed says

        Ure a glory hunter. U dis neri guy, to qualify for semi finals is not worth celebrating for? Guy na wa for u o. Mou has notin to prove to u. Is dis not an advancement. Begin to compare this season and last again. Is it not wot ure obsessed wit? U knw notin about football

  6. dexdeolaa says

    I love chelsea players attitude towards that game….what a class, makes me remember Napoli

  7. Akinwumi says

    Well done to all the Chelsea players who made us proud yesterday.I’m really happy and lest i forget criticising Mou doesn’t really made anybody a plastic fan at all!Just a piece of advice,Mou should learn to trust BA,he’s a fighter and should be given chance to shine.ktbffh!

  8. Zyte says

    @neri if u are waiting 2 celebrate at the end of the season,then u should also keep the criticism til the end of the season.
    Pls criticise constructivly & also celebrate wit us.lets celebrate our team now,imagine from crashn out of ucl group stage last term,2 winin europa,den 2 ucl semis.i cant ask 4 more cos finals wil be a bonus,but yet i believ we can go al the way 2 lisbon.cfc’s sevent ucl semi’s,if am not!! The sky is blue.

  9. Emile10 says

    Haters be like Mou is here to destroy Chelsea, he is not special anymore, he lost it. Bla bla bla B*** did you see how he went crazy after Ba goal? That show the love he has for our lovely Club. This team was eliminated in group stage last season and 20points behind Man utd. Now here the difference. We are in the semis and still have a chance to win the league. Damn call me the fuck u want but I will keep my damn faith in Mou. The Messi of the coach. The best in the world. Credit to all Chelsea players. Thanks Demba Ba, you pay what Chelsea spent on you! David Luiz was my man of the match tho

  10. Vaakmeisster says

    Chelsea, do not fucking give me a heart attack again. Please!

  11. KING IMITOR says

    I’m so happy we made it through to the last 4 in the UCL. there’s one thing i noticed bout the big boss, the special one, his jubilation and the way he celebrated in the heart of chelsea is far diff 4rm the way he did celebrate when managing other clubs. he’s indeed our manager & pray he stays with #CFC forever. i love you jose.
    it’s very rare 2 see a coach like u making those sub he made in the game and later pay off, he’s a gem, i dug my hart 4u sir jose felix mourinho. i promise to name my son after u

  12. beedem says

    simple the best,up chelsea,up mourinho.

  13. beedem says

    pls give us what we learn

  14. Anonymous says

    What I learnt is players self belief and the joke of beloved Mou reaping the benefits from his written-off players. Chelsea don’t buy dummies. Mourinho should bring out the best out in them.

    @ Zyte, Neri, Akinwumi & Cfc obsessed, Lolz.. I know your stock. I would love to see more bickering between you when we get thro the semis. You guys are obviously nuts for Cfc. I Like that.

  15. abrahamGodwin says

  16. beedem says

    pls post us what we learn.

  17. Martin, Norway. says

    I was very happy. Its open now in the semi finals. Everybody did well yesterday.

  18. Martin, Norway. says

    What did we learn yesterday?

  19. kes says

    I repeat again! Blame Jose for our failures, praise him for our successes. What a show of class! For him to celebrate the way he did meant it was over for PSG. One who have thought it was too early because if PSG had scored one, then it would have been over. Well done!

  20. kes says

    What I learnt yesterday, is Mou needs to find how to make them play this way without switching off momentory or at crucial moments!

  21. Fik says

    Very fantastic results! Players & coach proud us! The winning of gaints like Man city, Arsenal, Man Utd, Liverpool, Spurs & PSG in our home this season proud me more than winning throphy. Blue show better to gaints. If Blue buys a killer passer & best chance creater #10 player in summer, z speedy Schurrle & Salah wl be z blue’s next killer magicians… To utilize their speedy playing killing game blue hv to go & buy a killer passer that lack in z team now…

    PORTO, Portugal — Colombia striker Radamel Falcao is in a race from

    soon after undergoing knee surgical treatment Saturday,
    with his doctor supplying him a far better than 50-50 possibility of making it.
