Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva can’t wait to lock horns with Chelsea’s Brazilian contingent
The Brazil captain is excited at the prospect of facing several international team-mates in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Friday's draw means that the 29-year-old will face compatriots David Luiz, Willian, Oscar and Ramires in what promises to be a pulsating tie.
“I'm happy because Chelsea has many Brazilian players.”
“I’m looking forward to it! It will be a great duel between two great clubs.”
“I hope that unlike last season we will reach the semi-finals. The quarter-finals are all difficult and we hope the second leg will not be decisive.”
Laurent Blanc's men will host Chelsea in the first leg on April 2, with the second leg at Stamford Bridge scheduled for April 8.
