Glenn Hoddle believes Chelsea can beat Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night and progress to the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Blues host the Ligue 1 holders in the second leg of their last-16 clash at Stamford Bridge fresh from a 2-1 loss in Paris last month.

I think a lot of Chelsea fans will go there with a really positive frame of mind

Chelsea have met the French side in this stage of the competition in the past two seasons, progressing in 2014 before PSG won on away goals the following year.

However, Hoddle believes Chelsea are a different proposition under Jose Mourinho’s replacement Guus Hiddink.

“The important thing from the first leg is that Chelsea got their away goal,” Hoddle told Unibet.

“It’s crucial in European ties when they come to the knockout second leg game.

“That is absolutely vital that you score away from home.

“That’s why I think there will be a lot of hope at Stamford Bridge.

“I think a lot of Chelsea fans will go there with a really positive frame of mind and if they get behind the team, I think this could be a difficult night for Paris.”

Last term’s round of 16 encounter was thrilling with the sides level at 1-1 when they stepped out for the Stamford Bridge return.
