Lucas Moura wary of Chelsea counter-attack but warns Paris Saint-Germain are not underdogs
Brazil international Lucas Moura is wary of Chelsea's counter-attacks, but insists Paris Saint-Germain will not be the underdogs when they face the Premier League outfit.
The two sides meet at the Parc des Princes in their Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday and Lucas is confident PS-G can secure a positive result.
"Their defence-attack transition is unbelievably fast and they can hit you hard if you snooze,” he told The Guardian. “Chelsea have also got amazing players. Oscar, for example, has become crucial for them this season.
"But if people in England are thinking PSG are underdogs for this tie, they should think twice. We have already shown we can compete at this level and the supporters are expecting us to go beyond our quarter-final exit last season.”
