Lucas Moura ready to help PSG defeat Chelsea in Champions League quarter-finals
Lucas Moura is ready to make a positive impact tonight as Paris Saint-Germain host Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals first leg.
Although unlikely, the Brazilian still harbours hopes of breaking into Luiz Felipe Scolari’s squad for the World Cup.
Scolari is set to be in attendance at the Parc des Prince tonight and Moura aims to leave his mark.
In an interview with the Guardian, he said: "I am not obsessed, but it is natural that doing well for PSG is the only way I can push back into the Brazil squad.
"Having said that, it will be nice to do well with Big Phil at the stadium."
The youngster is expecting the English side Chelsea to provide a stern test of PSG’s European title aspiration but is confident his team can past the test.
He added: "All I know is that I'm ready to help. The games against Chelsea will be tough, but I think PSG have already shown last season that they can upset teams with more European experience.
“We gave Barcelona a good run for their money and only went out on away goals. It still bugs me that we left the Champions League without losing a game.”
The aim this year will be to leave the Champions League as winners, the challenge to achieve that resumes this evening.
