Before the Champions League draw was made on 15th December 2014, someone asked Jose Mourinho which team he would like to face in the round of 16 knockout stage in champions league, his answer was Paris Saint Germain the most difficult team atleast on paper. The first name coming out of the draw was PSG and you just knew it that will be against Chelsea and there it was. We will have the repeat of last season’s knockout stage tie between PSG vs Chelsea where Londoners got away after superb second leg performance having lost 2-0 away from home.
Chelsea vs PSG Round of 16 Schedule:
Because Chelsea finished top of their group means the first leg will be played in Paris and Chelsea will have the big oppertunity like last year to host the all important second leg at Stamford Bridge. here is the match schedule and if you scroll further down you will see how to buy tickets for both leg games.
|First Leg||17 February 2015||Parc des Princes, Paris||Viagogo, PSG Site|
|Second Leg||11 March 2015||Stamford Bridge, London||Chelsea Official Site, Viagogo|
How to buy tickets for First & Second Leg ?
If you are from outside France and would like to buy tickets for the first leg between PSG vs Chelsea you can visit the official website of PSG which will have important information about the european game tickets. In most of the cases you will have to become the official memeber of the club to buy tickets directly from the club. (http://billetterie.psg.fr/uk)
The second option is to start checking out the sites like Viagogo.co.uk and ticketmaster (ticket exchange sites). There you can buy or exchange tickets with other fans.
As far as the second leg at Stamford Bridge is concerned you can buy tickets from the official club site by becoming the “True Blue Member” at ( http://www.chelseafc.com/tickets-membership/tickets-membership.html ) which cost around 25 GBP but you will have the early access to all upcoming chelsea game tickets including the big home ties.
Chelsea vs PSG 2013-2014 Champions League Clashes:
PSG hosted Chelsea in the first leg of the round of 16 tie back in 2013-14 season where Paris ran out 3-1 winners at home but Chelsea turned the tables as they scored twice without a reply at Stamford Bridge and knocked PSG out from the champions league.
Chelsea are even more stronger this season with Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas in brilliant form alongside their golden boy Eden Hazard. I can see Chelsea holding up better in the away fixture this time around and PSG will find it hard to score against good Chelsea defence.
