Former Chelsea defender Franck Leboeuf is convinced they can beat Champions League opponents PSG in Paris.

The former Chelsea defender, who played more than 200 games in five years at Stamford Bridge, says his old club can destroy their mega-wealthy French opponents with their blistering speed on the break.

"This will be a really tough game. They are two huge teams. It will come down to fine margins.

"But as a former Chelsea man I could not say other than that I want Chelsea to do it. That little bit of extra experience will give them the edge. Mourinho has never lost in the quarter-finals.

"Chelsea are a great counter-attacking side. They break and they attack so quickly, and that will be the key.

"PSG like to go forward and they like to play. That will be perfect for Chelsea and why they can 'kill' this tie in Paris if they play well. Because they know how to attack the opposition."
