Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta insists Chelsea are still favourites for Champions League quarter-final
Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta insists Chelsea are still favourites to progress into the Champions League semi-finals.
José Mourinho’s side were beaten 3-1 in the first leg of their quarter-final with PS-G at the Parc des Princes. Despite such a positive result however, Brazilian-born Motta is taking nothing for granted.
"This is a good result, but it is still nothing done, there is another 90 minutes," he told L'Equipe.
"They remain the favourites, they have such an experience in European Cups, such players and they will be even better on hostile terrain next week.
"The last 30 minutes of the first period in Paris, they were huge. There were so many key things that happened in the game - the penalty that wasn't given to Edinson Cavani, Zlatan Ibrahimović's injury - but we showed we knew how to react and recover."
