Chelsea Player Ratings v PSG: Ivanovic Gets The Precious Away Goal But Cavani Draws Level

Posted by

All set for a huge night at Stamford Bridge. 

Chelsea drew 1-1 against Paris Saint-Germain in the first-leg of the Champions League last 16, as they grabbed that crucial away goal through defender turned striker Branislav Ivanovic.

Edinson Cavani cancelled out the Blues’ opening goal, yet Jose Mourinho will certainly be the happier of the two managers ahead of the second-leg at Stamford Bridge.

GK – Thibaut Courtois – 9/10

Put in another excellent performance in a Chelsea shirt, keeping his side in the game with some vital saves against Blaise Matuidi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cavani.

Was let down by his defence for Cavani’s equaliser.

RB – Branislav Ivanovic – 6/10

The defender has made a habit of popping up to score important goals for the Blues, and did so again tonight after heading home Gary Cahill’s delicate flick.


CB – Gary Cahill – 6/10

Strong in the box, and it was his flick that led to Chelsea’s goal, yet both he and John Terry gave Courtois too much work.

CB – John Terry – 6/10

Terry’s experience showed with his reading of the game, yet Mourinho will need a better performance at Stamford Bridge.

LB – Cezar Azpilicueta – 5/10

Found Gregory van der Wiel difficult to contend with on the wing, and offered little in attack.
