Paris Saint-Germain have been cruising in the Champions League since winning 4-1 at Olympiacos on 17 September, claiming Group C at a canter before comfortably disposing of Bayer Leverkusen over two legs.

Laurent Blanc’s side are also streets ahead in Ligue 1 and come into this match bursting with confidence and available at odds of 11/10 with Ladbrokes free bet to claim a first leg advantage at the Parc des Princes.

Paris have lost just one match domestically all season, winning 23 of their 31 Ligue 1 encounters and they come into this game off the back of nine straight victories, with the last three being recorded without conceding a goal.

PSG are now a phenomenally rich club thanks to Qatari money and they also have an excellent strikeforce in the form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani, with the pair looking to cause the Chelsea defence plenty of problems on Wednesday night.

Ibrahimovic is arguably the best player on the planet and he has a superb strike rate having managed 39 goals in all competitions this term. He’s a player that Jose Mourinho knows all about although 4/1 with Coral could look a touch of value about the Swede scoring the first goal.

Breaching the PSG defence could be a problem for a Chelsea side short of quality strikers, with Mourinho bemoaning his team’s lack of cutting edge on Saturday and it won’t be easy to find a way past Salvatore Sirigu, with Thiago Silva among the best central defenders in the world.

Ladbrokes offer 12/5 about a Paris Saint-Germain win to nil and this could be a contest which is tight but edged by the home side, with David Beckham backing his former club to get the better of Chelsea over two legs.

“The owners that run the club, they want the best and they’ve got the best,” Beckham told beIN Sport. “Thiago Silva, for instance, is the best defender in the world.

“Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] is a character but he’s also one of the best players I’ve ever played with. He’s a great man. He’s a player that I loved playing with.

“I think they’ve got a real chance in the Champions League this year. They’re coming up against a Chelsea team with Jose Mourinho as manager, who takes them to a different level.

“But I do think [PSG] have got a good chance.”

The former England international added he has fond memories of his time in Paris: “I was welcomed by the club with open arms, it was an incredible six months.

“The position they’re in, they’ve got such a strong unit with strong players.”

Chelsea are a 16/5 chance with BetVictor to win in Paris and put themselves in pole position, with Mourinho likely to hatch a game plan which will involve soaking up pressure and countering to deadly effect.
