Pastore: PSG can beat Chelsea again

PSG v Chelsea

Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Javier Pastore is confident his side will beat Chelsea and qualify for the quarter final of the UEFA Champions League.

The 26-year-old was used as a substitute when the Ligue 1 kings defeated the Blues 2-1 in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 game in France.

Laurent Blanc’s men warmed up for Chelsea by booking a place in semi-finals of the French Cup against Lorient courtesy goals from Edinson Cavani, Marquinhos and Lucas Moura a 3-1 win

“It was a cup match and everyone wanted to win it,” he told France3.

“The important thing was that we came out on top and now we are into the semis. For the confidence, it’s great to have won.

“It’s great for the team to win before we take on Chelsea, but we still have a match to take care of on Saturday.”

Pastore is glad to be back on the pitch as he made a fourth appearance since returning from a month out due to calf and groin injuries.

“Personally, I’m very happy to have played. I’m getting back into the rhythm,” he added.
