Thiago Silva believes this Chelsea squad will be tougher to face in the champions league.
Chelsea are having a bad and horrendous EPL campaign and their latest loss to Leicester puts them one point above the relegation zone.
Silva however is still wary of the threat Chelsea can and will pose.
“A lot [more dangerous]. If you know a little about football, today PSG is the favourite to advance to the quarter-finals, and that is a great responsibility,” he said after the draw when asked if Chelsea would pose a more potent threat given their woes.
“It can be good for the fans, but this is an extra pressure. We sort of have the obligation to pass this phase.
“But we all know that football is a very tight game, even more when it comes to the Champions League.
“If you play a derby it doesn’t matter if you are in a better moment, in the pitch is all the same. So, in this phase of the Champions League there are no favourites.
“And we are playing the second game away. So I think it’s a 50-50 chance for each side.”
PSG overcame Chelsea at the same stage last season before suffering a 5-1 aggregate loss to Barcelona, and Silva believes the draw is as good as his side could have hoped for.
“It is a very good rival, but we can dream about going to the quarter-finals like we did last year,” he added.
“We wanted to avoid the strongest teams. We couldn’t play against Real [Madrid], because they were in our group, but we could play against Barcelona and Bayern [Munich].
“Putting aside these two, all the others we could play in equal conditions and have a clear opportunity to advance to the quarter-finals. We hope we have the same luck as last year.”
