Mourinho confident ahead of PSG return tie

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has said that he is confident his side can overturn a 3-1 deficit against Paris St. Germain in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie, writes BBC Sport.

The Blues trail going into Tuesday’s game at Stamford Bridge thanks to an own goal from David Luiz and Javier Pastore’s stoppage time strike in Paris. A 2-0 win will be enough to send Chelsea into the last four on away goals, while Samuel Eto’o could make his return from a hamstring injury.

Mourinho, who described Pastore’s goal at the Parc de Princes as a ‘ridiculous joke’, has insisted that all the pressure is on the French champions, while he believes his side can turn the tie around. He said: “I think if Paris is knocked out it will be a big disappointment for them; if we are knocked out it’s something that, in this moment, lots of people are expecting.

“We have to enjoy the risk of the situation. At 9.30pm we can be out and we know that we have this risk. But at 7.45pm we have chances to be in the semi-final.

“I think we are going to win, really. In the end of the two legs, I think we are going to score more goals than them. In this moment it’s 3-1. I think in the end it can be 4-3 or 5-4.”
