Chelsea's Mourinho predicts victory against PSG

MOST COMMENTED

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Tuesday] Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who after a 3-1 loss in the first leg said his team lacked "real strikers," predicted that his team will defeat Paris St. Germain on Tuesday and move into the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League.

"If you ask me if we are going to win tomorrow," he said on Monday. "I say yes. I think we are going to win. In the end of the two legs, I think we are going to score more goals than them."

Mourinho so lacked confidence in his strikers that he used German winger Andre Schuerrle up front in the first leg in Paris. He has shown little faith in Fernando Torres and Demba Ba and isn't sure if Samuel Eto'o can play in the second leg.

PSG will be without star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is injured, but Mourinho said the French champions, backed by an Qatari investment firm, has far more depth.

"Eto'o didn't play the first game and I'm not sure he will play the second game," Mourinho said. "Ramires is suspended, [Nemanja] Matic and [Mohamed] Salah cannot play in the Champions League and we are not crying."
