Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink claims they can still reach the Champions League quarterfinals despite their 2-1 defeat to PSG in the first leg of the round of 16.
The French champions scored a late winner via substitute Edinson Cavani, but not before John Obi Mikel had given the Premier League champions a crucial away goal.
And Hiddink still believes they can qualify to the quarterfinals of the competition despite the loss.
He said: “At the end, it hurt a bit but still we are in the race. In two legs it is important to have an away goal. If we can do it at Stamford Bridge then a defeat doesn’t count so much.
“A defeat is never a good or nice feeling, but it’s a two-legged game. Scoring away is always good. We reflect on that, and on the very good tactical, defensive organization.
“The performance of our players was technically very good. But we could have been a bit more lethal in the counters we made. But it’s difficult to play them. That’s why I’m never happy with a loss, but it’s not a dramatic loss.
“It’s a 50-50 still. We have some weeks to prepare for this, and I hope everyone is on board for the second leg of this game,” he said.
Defender Gary Cahill also added: “We are more confident at home, we know what we need to do. We knew how tough it was to come here and get a result. The way the tie is poised we have done it before at home.”
