Chelsea midfielder Ramires says that Champions League qualification is not a lost cause
The Brazilian was part of the Chelsea side that came back from a 3-1 first leg defeat away at Napoli in the last-16 of the Champions League and he believes that the same is possible against Paris Saint-Germain.
Chelsea are unbeaten at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this season and Ramires says that Chelsea must take this impressive form into Europe to be in with a chance of overturning the two-goal deficit against the French champions.
“We need to score two goals to but it’s not impossible,” said Ramires, who is banned for the second leg next Tuesday after receiving a third yellow in the competition last night.
“Paris have a great team but we will be playing at home in front of our fans. We have to keep our heads up.”
“We can’t say that [Paris] are better than [Napoli in 2011/12]. We played against Napoli and we won and now we will have 90 more minutes to play against Paris.”
“Nothing is lost yet, we have to score two goals and we’re averaging a good amount of goals at home, so we have what it takes to reach the next stage,” completed the 27-year-old.
