The Dutch football fans will know to keep the options open and that’s certainly what Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will be doing tonight.
He could look to switch Willian and Pedro to get Pedro more space, while a surprise switch to Victor Moses could provide the wing-back with a foil once again.
And of course, the Blues could make a shock move for a proven winger – with Radamel Falcao another possibility – so good luck to Chelsea, if only to avoid defeat.
PSG aren’t at their best, or at least not up to their usual standards, and have rarely looked like scoring. Not long ago they were practically unstoppable, but since losing three successive games to Anderlecht, Monchengladbach and Bayern Munich they’ve been dreadful.
Thiago Silva’s absence from all but six of those games has had a significant impact on the defence, but three goals and seven goals conceded in those six matches should be enough to get them back to winning ways and through to the group stages.
Barca could have three or four injured players to contend with too, which would suggest the double-header could be more of a foregone conclusion. Not that the scoreline will matter on a very balmy night in Catalonia.
