Blues have it all to do in the return leg at Stamford Bridge. 

Paris Saint-Germain head coach Laurent Blanc says that the Ligue 1 champions are not coming to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night just to protect their 3-1 lead from the first leg, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The big-spending Parisians need only to avoid a defeat by two goals or less to progress to the semi-finals of Europe’s premier club competitions, however, Blanc insists that the visitors will not be playing for a goalless draw though.

“We are leading after the first leg, so we have to be the favourites” said Blanc.

”But we’ve not come here to let Chelsea dominate us and make us suffer.

”Our best approach is to create chances. We don’t want them dictating the game.

”If you have seen, us, though, you will know our philosophy is that we like to keep the ball and pose problems.

”But if we want to be a top European side we have to be able to put this into practice away as well as at home.

”We believe in certain things. Taking the game to the opposition is the best way to win trophies.

”I think we’ll have some issues in the first 20 minutes tomorrow, when they’ll be very aggressive and try and score, so we’ll have to be calm and counter-act Chelsea’s play.

”But we will try and impose our philosophy as often as we can, and it would be wonderful to progress playing this way.”
